Pertaringa 'Rifle and Hunt' Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Special Price $36.00 Regular Price $40.00
Dark confections, ripe black berries and taut, glossy tannins and spice spell out this Cabernet from Geoff Hardy’s Pertaringa range. It’s typically McLaren Vale with a breath of Adelaide Hills freshness to it. If you’re on the hunt for another Cab Sauv for your collection, this may be it.

We’re starting to say ‘yes’ to Geoff Hardy’s Pertaringa more and more and the tasting panel made their verdict pretty clear when his ‘Rifle & Hunt’ Cabernet Sauvignon appeared on the blocks. It’s postivively fruit forward, with brown sugar on the nose along with other dark confections lying in the background – think dark toffee and bitter chocolate. The fruit is black and concentrated and glossy tannins are present at the end. Drinking on target now but will bear a few years in the gun closet..
