Hardy’s – one of the most recognized names in Australian winemaking since 1853 – released two 2012 varietals that are as fresh and delightful as a scrubbed sky after a fierce rain.

Shiraz is regarded as the hallmark grape of Australia and Hardy’s Nottage Hill ($13) mirrors this exalted status.

Crafted from south eastern Australia growing area, this deep purple hued wine is dense and concentrated with strong backbone. Ripe blueberry, dark cherry and black currant and licorice aromas cuddle the senses with anticipation of the first swirl and sip.

Dark fruit and black olive flavors are enhanced by warm spice and toasty oak. Pour this with roast beef, loaded blue cheese burgers and rack of lamb.

William Hardy chardonnay ($17) is the pale side of the wine duo. The growing season was warm, allowing optimum flavor and freshness and stainless steel fermentation added more interest. This varietal has an intense melon and white peach bouquet with spicy oak notes.

Flavors of lemon zest, stone fruit combine on the creamy palate for a lingering oak finish with subtle sweetness.

Enjoy this dry selection chilled along side grilled seafood with lime, salted, toasted pecans, baked chicken with white cheddar sauce and pasta Alfredo.
