Hardys Nottage Hill Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Deep magenta, vivid hue; bright blackberry fruit aromas are offset by a strong cherry mocha oak note; medium-bodied, with tangy acidity and gravelly tannins a notable feature on the finish.

Very well made, with loads of character and fruit.Its spicy, peppery and musky fragrance of intense cassis, raspberries, and cedar/vanilla oak is aromatic, varietal and intense.Long and juicy, its sweetly fruited palate of blackberries, cassis and raspberries knits with pliant tannins, sweet oak, soft acids plus a lingering smoky aspect.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Some adroit work in the winery has invested the wine with well above colour for the vintage (its South Eastern Australian GI precludes help from WA); the medium-to full-bodied palate, too, has unexpected weight given the combination of price and vintage. Its limitation is the slightly heavy/claustrophobic impact of the palate.

With plum, rhubarb and pepper flavours and finely structured textural tannins, Notty looks, tastes and feels like shiraz – and it’s not sweet, thank goodness! For $8.50, that’s a lot to ask, and for $7 at Dan’s you just might need to stock up ready for unwanted visitors. www.hardys.com.au

This isn't a hugely complex shiraz, but for its price you get genuine elegance, style and finesse. Its earthy, faintly meaty and peppery bouquet of dark plums, berries and cedar/chocolate oak is lifted by a whiff of exotic spice. Smooth and supple, it's long and sweetly fruited, with a juicy, pastille-like presence of berry/plum fruit knit with fresh oak and supported by a fine, dusty spine of firmish tannin. For under ten bucks? You have to be kidding!
