Bargainiest. Yes, it is a real word - and it is the only way to describe the mad value of this Geoff Hardy GMH Mixed Red Pack.
Comprising 12 full-flavoured reds made by McLaren Vale winemaker Geoff Hardy, this pack is overwhelmingly good drinking for very, very few dollars.
What's in the case you ask? Well, we have three wines (four bottles of each) that span some of Geoff's GMH Cabernet bottlings. The first one is a double-gold medal winning Langhorne Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, then a 93 point scoring Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Langhorne Creek and the Adelaide Hills, then rounded out by a Cabernet Merlot that was a Winestate Magazine 'Best Value Buy'.
Gee that's a lot of delicious, chunky South Aussie red wine!
