Concentrated aromas of blueberry and plum are enhanced by subtle hints of cloves and liquorice. A full-bodied, rich palate exhibits intense fruit concentration of plums and dark berries. Elegant structure, great depth of flavour and texture, and excellent balance are hallmarks of this distinguished wine.
Background: The inaugural 1970 Eileen Hardy Shiraz was released as a tribute to the matriarch of Australia's best known winemaking and sailing family. Eileen actively influenced the Hardy Wine Company between 1938-1975, and was honoured with an OBE in 1977 for her outstanding contribution to the wine industry. In recognition of this great lady, each vintage the winemakers select the best Shiraz to carry the 'Eileen Hardy' label.
