Hardy’s Heritage Reserve Bin Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich ruby red colour, with its luscious bouquet exhibiting complex aromas of bay leaf, cassis, chocolate mint and perfumed French oak. The lively and appealing palate consists of blackcurrant flavours and chocolaty notes, with a rich texture and silky tannins providing an excellent length of flavour. Foods like beef ragu and terra rossa lamb shanks pair marvellously with this elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.

94 Point Rated - Ned Goodwin James Halliday Wine Companion
"Matured in 25% new French oak for 16 months. An interregional mesh of grapes, hand picked across exulted cabernet regions Margaret and Frankland Rivers, McLaren Vale and Eden Valley. On paper, highly experimental. In the glass, mission realised. Blackcurrant, a maritime swag of salty olive, dried seaweed and sage-doused tannins, impeccably wrought, attenuated and strident across the mouth. This is high quality. Super value. Immaculate and nestled French oak influence, beautifully positioned to prolong the experience with a bit of age."
Decanter World Wine Awards
"Heady layers of coffee, dark smoke and vanilla lead on to a palate graced with damson, mocha spice and liquorice."

HRB stands for ‘Heritage Reserve Bin’ and is attached by Hardys to wines made by blending components from mature vineyards around the country to which its winemakers have access. This multi-regional, multi-vineyard approach yields wines of exceptional quality although it runs counter to Old World-derived notions of ‘terroir’ and individual ‘distinguished sites’ as sources of the finest wines. There is room for both approaches. The makeup of this Cabernet varies from year to year but typically includes grapes from vineyards in Western Australia (Margaret River and Great Southern) and South Australia (Coonawarra).
