Pertaringa Tipsy Hill McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon

The nose is sophisticated with complex and elegant notes of blackberries, cassis, violets, tobacco, dried herbs and a trace of mint. The palate is beautifully balanced with black fruits, herbs and mocha, followed by powdery tannins and a long finish. The Tipsy Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is from Bec Hardys vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale. The ancient soils and elevation of the Tipsy Hill vineyard offer the perfect conditions for growing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon. The property also includes a stunning garden, featuring the rare Tipsy Hill Imperial Concubine rose, from which the name originates. Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions. Established in 2015, Bec Hardy Wines is a family-owned wine business based in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Bec is a 6th generation member of and the first female vigneron from one of Australias oldest wine families, the Hardys. The Hardy name has been synonymous with South Australian wine since the 1850s and Bec Hardy continues that tradition, building on the experience and reputation of her predecessors. Becs family has been tending vineyards in the premium maritime region of McLaren Vale since the her great-great-great grandfather, Thomas Hardy, arrived from the UK in 1850. Thomas was the regions first settler and is widely regarded as the father of the South Australian wine industry. Just like her father Geoff left the family company in 1980, Bec is now making her own way in the Australian wine world with Bec Hardy Wines. In 2020, celebrating 40 years, Bec acquired the Pertaringa brand from her father Geoff to join the Bec Hardy Wines portfolio. Bec has a modern twist on 170 years of winemaking heritage
