There's an unexplainable joy when a wine captivates us, when its aroma, taste, and history intertwine to create an exceptional experience. Today, we're thrilled to introduce you to two outstanding Australian wineries that have once again exceeded our expectations with their immaculate releases. The best part? You can indulge in these treasures through the ultimate red wine bundle - the Grant Burge x Hardys Bundle.
Grant Burge Nebu 2017
The Grant Burge Nebu 2017 is one of the epitomes of the Grant Burge range, crafted meticulously from the best parcels and vineyards of an exceptional vintage. Chief winemaker Craig Stansborough describes this release as "only the second release of this wine. The cooler vintage in 2017 suited Barossa floor Cabernet well and this is reflected in the wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon portion of this wine could stand alone but the wine came alive once the Shiraz was blended in".
The winemaking process was a carefully orchestrated dance of ageing the wine for 18 months in French hogheads - 18% in new barrels and the rest in one to five-year-old barrels. The result is a powerful and rich wine with ruggedness on the nose. Dominated by strong Cabernet traits, you'll discover notes of black coffee, dark mint chocolate, and earthy tones. As the wine breathes in the glass, the Barossa Shiraz takes center stage, enveloping the senses with aromas of plum, dark cherry, and spice.
On the palate, the Nebu continues to astonish with its vibrancy and complexity. The Cabernet notes persist, joined by dark mint chocolate, berries, and rich black coffee. The luxurious Shiraz contributes delightful dark cherry and spice flavors, leading to a smooth-as-cream finish.
For the ultimate experience, we recommend serving the Nebu between 12-18 degrees Celsius in a Bordeaux glass, as it complements the wine's nuances perfectly. Pair this exceptional blend with gamey meats or hard cheeses - the choice is yours. For the collectors among us, this wine can be cellared for up to 10 years, promising even more wonders with age.
Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is a fitting tribute to Thomas Hardy, the visionary founder of the Hardys company and one of South Australia's greatest wine pioneers. The wine is a testament to the healthy canopies and crops, combined with an extended mild summer with minimal heat spikes, that resulted in the production of remarkably high-quality fruit.
What can you expect? The wine's youthful aromatics enchant with fresh plums, red and black berry fruits, mulberry, and a medley of spices like clove, cinnamon, and fragrant wild mint, all intertwined with subtle cedar notes. Upon tasting, the wine reveals its tight and muscular frame, carrying a wave of fresh dark plums, mulberry, and ripe blackberry fruit. As the journey unfolds, the structural finish emerges, accompanied by beautifully integrated oak and fine natural tannins, all leading to a long, mouth-watering finish that leaves you craving more
