The 5th release of Hardys HRB Pinot Noir continues the long history of inter-regional blending for Hardy’s. A blend of Yarra Valley and Tasmania, notably Derwent Valley and Tamar Valley fruit. As always a wine of delicacy and finesse with aromatic spice texture and complexity.
Fruit from our Yarra Valley Prices Road vineyard situated at 500 metres above sea level, shows the terroir of this area with strawberries, anise and mineral drive on the palate whilst the Tasmanian components show more dark cherries, black fruit and rich tannin profile.
A Highly aromatic release full of red berry, spice and autumnal leaf with a palate of finesse, complexity and balance with soft juicy fruit profile, finishing with mineral acid. An excellent lead-up to harvest saw moderate yields and good berry size with cooler conditions for most of the growing season. A vintage without extremes of heat and later ripening than recent vintages saw fruit ripen slowly and steadily. Picked at optimum maturity then made in a way that combines old and new world techniques.
