“Whiskers The Man: Whiskers Blake was a roguish little bloke who worked in Hardys Tintara vineyard around the turnof the century. His job was scaring birds from the grapes with an old 8 gauge shotgun. He also took it upon himself to regularly test the products.
Rich tawny color with olive hues. The nose is reminiscent of chocolate with coffee overtones. The palate is smooth and mellow with good length and a dry finish. Classic rancio characters are also evident in this flavorsome wine.”~Winery Notes
HardysView all from Hardys
Our pioneering founder and my great, great Grandfather, Thomas Hardy, had a vision to
create wines that will be prized in the markets of the world
He made this vision a reality with the bottling of his first vintage in 1857. Ever since then, five generations of the Hardy family have been devoted to keeping his passion and his pioneering spirit alive.
Over 160 years later this heritage is what still drives us to push not only ourselves, but also the boundaries of winemaking and to create wines for you to enjoy today.
