Pertaringa Yeoman Shiraz 2019
Region: McLaren Vale
Story: Bec's great-great-great grandfather, Thomas Hardy, was born in 1830 of yeoman farmer stock farmers who owned and farmed their own land. Six generations on, Bec and her family are still of yeoman descent, cultivating grapes at the family-owned and sustainably managed vineyards. With a modern twist on 170 years of winemaking history, this wine pays homage to Thomas Hardy's original yeoman stock.
Vineyard: This is a single vineyard Shiraz from the Lesley vineyard. The Osmond family who own the Lesley vineyard don't know the exact age of these vines, all they know is that they are more than 140 years old. The vineyard is located north of McLaren Flat where the old, gnarled vines produce amazing quality, concentrated fruit.
Soils: The soils in this vineyard are deep alluvial clays from the Holocene era (11,700 years old). This area would have been a flood plain that was first planted by settlers so the soils retained water and the vines grew well, even before irrigation.
Harvest Date: 11 March
Winemaking: Small batch open fermenters. 40% new French oak hogsheads for 20 months.
Nose: The nose offers dense and complex notes of dark plums, cherries, mulberries, and liquorice with spicy notes of black pepper and cloves.
Palate: The palate is concentrated and smooth with layers of rich black fruits, liquorice, chocolate and spices, followed by plush tannins and an elegant, long finish.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2034

Winestate Magazine 2023
"This is gracefully opulent and complex, showing dark and purple fruit richness, spicy oak, dark chocolate and warm spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate displaying terrific weight and fleshy texture. Multi-layered and seamless, finishing impressively long and velvety."
- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2023
- Wine Showcase Magazine 2023
"This is elite stuff. Opaque maroon, it oozes delicious black cherries, mocha notes, cocoa powder, plums, cloves, black fruits and chocolate. Well crafted, this offers excellent length. Tight and yet expressive; focused and yet generous. The tannins are very fine but seem endless with good balance throughout. This is a big, rich, ripe chocolate bomb and is seriously lovely with a decade to fifteen years ahead of it."
- Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot 2022
