rated this wine as 89/100
with the following review:
2005 vintage. Big, Australian fruit bomb with an explosion of red and black fruit aromas and flavours. Some mintyness arrives towards the finish. Still evident tannins will reward another 2-3 years ageing, or decant prior to serving today. Tasted May/2012.
Shiraz 2003, McLaren Vale, South Australia: Hardy Wine Company’s flagship Shiraz, ‘Eileen Hardy’, was first made in 1973 to celebrate the
family matriarch’s 80th birthday. It continues to be Hardy’s finest Shiraz. The 2003 was not
reviewed at press time, but year after year it is praised by the critics for its structure, style, finesse
and balance. Expect more of the same with this vintage. My note: A cult classic in Australia, this robust red offers aromas of black plum, smoke, vanilla, blackberry and spice. Drink: 2008-2012. 461368 14% XD 750 mL $88.95 Score: 94/100. December 6, 2008 Best Value Dessert Wine. Full Review
