Hardys Wines, a renowned Australian winery with a rich legacy spanning 170 years, is thrilled to
commemorate this milestone by unveiling their latest masterpiece, ‘The Eight.’ This exceptional wine, a 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz blend, embodies our unwavering commitment to capturing the essence of Australia’s diverse terroir. Through a meticulous selection process, ‘The Eight’ seamlessly blends exceptional parcels from three esteemed vineyards – Frankland River, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra – resulting in a wine of unparalleled complexity, power, and grace.

Drawing upon the expertise of our talented winemakers and harnessing the distinct characteristics of each region, Hardys has expertly crafted this limitededition wine from eight select barrels. The culmination of our passion and dedication, ‘The Eight’ promises an extraordinary sensory journey, showcasing the pinnacle of Australian winemaking.

Hardys Winemaker, Helen McCarthy, describes ‘The Eight’ as a true representation of Australia’s winemaking prowess. She remarks, “This wine epitomizes our tireless pursuit of excellence. By meticulously handpicking the finest grapes from three iconic regions, we have created a wine that harmoniously combines their unique attributes. ‘The Eight’ is a testament to the immense potential of Australian wines and an experience that will delight wine
enthusiasts around the world.”

With its harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, ‘The Eight’ presents an exquisite balance of flavours. McCarthy further explains, “It is a wine of outstanding dark fruit intensity, concentration, structure, and length that will continue to develop complexity for decades.” The Cabernet Sauvignon contributes elegant structure and refined tannins, while the Shiraz adds depth, richness, and a hint of spice. The resulting wine captivates the senses with its
complex layers of dark fruits, subtle notes of chocolate, and a lingering, velvety finish.
