Bec Hardy Wines Tipsy Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard McLaren Vale, 2016

Australia

Producer

Bec Hardy Wines

Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

Produced from the Tipsy Hill vineyard where Bec, her husband Richard and their daughter Tilly live. They moved into the house in February 2016, and this, the first vintage they produced, was picked just a few weeks later. Located at Blewitt Springs, the 1.8-hectare block is planted on very sandy soils on an east-facing slope. Deep ruby in colour, it has mellow cedary aromas. It is rich and concentrated on the palate with smoky flavours, some grassy notes coming from the cooler location and a firm mineral finish. 2016 was a mild year with low rainfall. Grapes were fermented in open fermenters, on skins, the wine then matured in oak for 20 months using 50% new French oak hogsheads. It will continue to mature in bottle.
Bec will personally sign each bottle for Opimian Members.
