Winemaker Notes

A big, ripe fruit spicy McLaren Vale Shiraz. Ripe, dark cherry on nose, with a hint of chocolate and mocha. Palate full, rich, with just a hint of oak. Lovely soft ripe tannin complements the fruit driven finish. A soft, but weighty traditional McLaren Vale Shiraz.

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Only one barrel was made of the purple/black 2004 The Ox. Sourced from a miniscule yield of 0.5 tons of fruit per acre, this brooding behemoth offers a superb bouquet of mineral/earth notes, pepper, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Loaded on the palate, it is intensely flavored, has great depth and grip, and a 60-second finish. Remarkably, it can be enjoyed now but will still be providing pleasure 15-20 years from now.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rich, ripe and generous, spicy with pepper and licorice overtones to the dark berry and dried cherry flavors. Finishes with flair. Drink now through 2016.

Andrew Hardy, Australia
With grapes grown by the winemaker’s father, Robert G. Hardy, son Andrew takes special care to produce wine that is rich and bold for a classic old vine Australian Shiraz. These vines date back to 1891 and can be found on the upper Tintara vineyard in McLaren Vale. Made by winemaker Andrew “Ox” Hardy, these are exceptionally limited and carefully crafted wines. Alas, there’s precious little to go around. However, the 2007 release of a new wine called “Little Ox” is cause for great excitement - cuttings were taken from the original block and planted on a reconditioned hillside on the same property. The result – textbook Shiraz with a pedigree like no other at a fabulous price.

McLaren Vale Wine

South Australia, Australia

View all products

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style. Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
