Tasting Notes

“This rose-colored South Aussie Cab delivers in a big way. It opens with bright, lucid aromas of red berry, baking spice, tree bark and flowers. The tannins are well-integrated, soft yet present, gently tugging on the fruit, which gets a lift from the crunchy acidity. It's a modern, medium-weight Aussie Cab that should be a weeknight staple.”

92 Points / Top 100 Wines of 2021 - Wine Enthusiast, September 2021

You simply don’t see many sub-$23 top-100 wines with as much backstory as this juicy Cabernet from Pertaringa. In fact, nevermind the backstory: By the intrinsic quality and character of this wine in my glass, it’s hard to imagine doing better for the money.

Representing the 6th generation of the pioneering Hardy family in South Australia, Bec Hardy is – remarkably – the first woman in her family to continue the winemaking tradition. More than this, in addition to her own eponymous winery, she's taken on her father's iconic estate, Pertaringa. Bec's great-great-grandfather, Thomas Hardy, arrived from the UK in 1850 and is largely credited for establishing the wine industry in South Australia (Adelaide, McLaren Vale, Clare, and Barossa Valleys).

Known for their near-perfect scoring (99 point) Tipsy Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, Pertaringa's double-edged sword is their command for the absolute top quality in all of their estate-made wines. That’s music to our ears since we’re of the (strong) opinion that any region-leading producer’s most affordable option should leave a deep impression. Today’s 2019 “Lakeside” Cabernet does just that: each sip is supple, polished, and impossibly delicious, but that’s what great wines do: they make the winemaking aspect seem effortless.

Given its dynamic combination of complexity, refreshment, terroir expression, and value, add in the fact that this is their entry-level offering, which landed on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wines list is a testament to the high bar that winemaker Bec Hardy sets at this estate.

The Producer

Pertaringa

Established in 2015, Bec Hardy Wines is the namesake estate owned by 6th generation, Bec Hardy, of the historic Hardy family of Southern Australia. Bec’s great-great-grandfather, Thomas Hardy, arrived from the UK in 1850 and is largely credited for establishing the wine industry in South Australia (Adelaide, McLaren Vale, Clare, and Barossa Valleys). Today, Bec is the first female vigneron to carry on her family’s tradition.

Bec’s heritage dates back to the founding years of Australian wine history and is part of her ethos in farming the land, which lies just 2km from Thomas Hardy’s first vineyard acquisition in McLaren Vale. In 2020, she also took the reins on her father’s winery, Pertaringa, which he established in McLaren Vale in 1980.

Today, Bec produces about 40,000 cases annually between both brands, embracing sustainability through all of the wines’ production and showcasing her connection to the land. South Australia’s wine regions offer some of the world’s most ancient soils. Bec pays respect to this land by using predominantly organic products, regular vineyard and weather monitoring, and adopting integrated pest management practices in the vineyard.

All blocks are picked, crushed and fermented separately with gentle handling to prevent harsh extraction of phenolics before being matured in small batches. Each batch is treated individually with techniques such as whole bunch, cold soak, separation of pressings and varying oak treatments, resulting in hundreds of different wine parcels that allow us to produce the best blends possible for the final wine. Our aim is to produce wines that display their true varietal characters, with good palate weight and complexity, as well as being food friendly.

We believe that excellence should not be confined to our viticulture and winemaking and should be applied across the whole of our business. In 2021, Bec Hardy was named as one of South Australia’s ‘Top 40 under 40’ – recognizing South Australia’s best entrepreneurs under 40 years of age. In late 2020, Bec Hardy Wines also won an Australian Export & Investment Award for Resilience in Exporting in 2020, recognizing the very pinnacle of excellence in exporting. Consolidating that success in 2021, the South Australian Government named us as one of 25 inaugural recipients of their Global Expansion Program.

Together, Bec and Richard present Bec Hardy Wines and Pertaringa with a modern twist on 170 years of wine heritage.
