Hardys Tintara McLaren Vale Shiraz 2013
You just know what you’re going to get with these Tintara reds.
Dark purple red, this is old school McLaren Vale to the core. Sweet vanilla bean oak, a sweet berry mid palate and thick oak tannins. Perhaps a little sweet, but the combination of juicy fruit, gently generous oak and soft (added) tannins is a treat.
Easy recommendation, but wait until it goes on special.
