Hardys 2012 The Chronicles Butcher's Gold Shiraz

McLaren Vale SA | 13.0 per cent alcohol | $16

Thomas Hardy didn’t join the gold rushes.

He sold meat to the miners instead and made enough money to buy his first land.

This full-bodied shiraz shows plenty of McLaren Vale character, with aromas of dark berries and spice, and rich, velvety softness on the palate.
