Available by the dozen
CabernetSauv / McLaren Vale / SouthAustralia
The brilliant maritime climes of McLaren Vale yield a richly styled Cabernet wine of penetrating fruit characters and firm but assuaging tannins. The people behind Pertaringa are amongst the most eminent Australian wine industry identities, viticulture on the Pertaringa vineyards however, remains a very hands on affair. Vines are closely managed for trim harvests of small but intensely flavoured Cabernet grapes, a concentration of berry characters in the juices and a measure of solid yet refined tannins within the skins.

Undercover is an old vine Shiraz, selected from Pertaringa's five decade old vineyard, hand crafted by winemaking supremos Geoff Hardy and Ben Riggs.

Merlot / McLaren Vale / SouthAustralia
Even the finest Merlot is rarely seen front and centre as a pure varietal wine. Pertaringa manage an endowment of the finest McLaren Vale vineyards and can call on harvests of superior fruit for the construct of an exclusively Merlot wine. Layers of fleshy plum flavour, velvet textures and pliable tannins define the structure and style of Stage Left, essentially a splendid food friendly mode of Merlot, the first choice to accompany quails wrapped and grilled in pancetta or delicately braised game over red wine Jus and pureed parsnip grits.

SauvBlanc / Adelaide Hills / SouthAustralia
Sauvignon Blanc is the first grape variety of vintage to ripen. Local fauna have a naturally sweet tooth and find the juicy, sugar filled berries irresistible. Scarecrows are an old solution to a timeless problem but the delinquent criiters have never learned to distinguish the artfully stuffed rags from the real thing. Those grapes which survive the pilferage are crafted by the Pertaringa team into an engagingly aromatic wine with clean, crisp palate, the ideal choice for service alongside moreton bay bug tails dressed in paprika butter.

$ 26.99 Pertaringa Rifle Hunt Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Available by the dozen
CabernetSauv / McLaren Vale / SouthAustralia
Pertaringa was established during the early 1980s at the intersection of Rifle Range and Hunt Roads. It was a rough time for the Australian wine industry and growers were ripping up their vineyards, some of them old and invaluable, to qualify for government grants. Pertaringa founder Geoff Hardy came from a long line of McLaren Vale winemakers and welcomed the challenge. Hunt & Rifle is a stately Cabernet wine of beautifully fragrant fruit characters and refined, graceful tannins, a suitable match to braised beef cheek sous glaze or succulent sticky pork.

Semillon / McLaren Vale / SouthAustralia
Bonfire Block was a dilapidated old vineyard site, destroyed by fire in the 1980s, she has been replanted to Semillon. Geoff Hardy's K1 Vineyard at Kuitpo is only a few miles away from McLaren Vale as the crow flies. The maritime surrounds of the Bonfire Block yield generously flavoured fruit, augmented by batches of finer, cool climate Semillon from the Adelaide Hills. Bonfire Block is always crafted to a styling which displays the vagaries of vintage and outstanding intensity of Semillon grapes grown to Pertaringa's superlative vineyards.
 
The vineyards around the foothills behind McLaren Vale have always produced some of the regions finest wines, the enriched soils and sea breezes off St Vincent’s Gulf, set the scene for high quality wine grapes

In 1981 the Australian Wine Industry was in bad shape. Classic old vines, used to make fortified and red wines, were being removed. Big companies were pulling out of the industry. Twenty four year old Geoff Hardy had recently graduated from Roseworthy Agricultural College and had seen how the Californians were grafting old vines over to new varieties such as Chardonnay. Geoff formed a partnership with Ian Leask who already had a solid history in viticulture and was then managing the Ryecroft Vineyards. The vineyard was available for sale and this is how Pertaringa, an Aboriginal name meaning Belonging to the Hills, was born.

Their grafted vines, Chardonnay in particular, were an instant success, and the Shiraz ironically sold to Hardy Wines, Geoff’s family wine company, to make port, in exchange for some wine as payment. A far cry from today when Pertaringa’s old Shiraz and Cabernet vines make two of the finest full bodied reds of the region. Pertaringa is a hands on boutique wine company where all the staff are dedicated professionals concentrating on producing the highest quality grapes from low yielding vines and wines of truly exceptional quality. Much of the estate's fruit is highly sought by many of Australia’s leading wine companies for their award winning wines.

Each individual Pertaringa Wine is made from select parcels of the best fruit from each variety grown in the vineyard. In 1990, Geoff and Ian won the first South Australian Vineyard of the Year award, worthy recognition of their combined efforts. In 1997 a cellar door was added to the vineyard complex making a visit to the vineyard, today, even more rewarding. Pertaringa wines have now found their way to Europe, North America and Asia where they have received much recognition. Pertaringa’s Shiraz has been chosen by Qantas to be served in their Business Class. Recently the Pertaringa Shiraz was awarded five stars by London’s famous Decanter Magazine outscoring other Australian Premium Shiraz such as The Eileen Hardy, The Armagh, Grant Burge Meshach and Rosemount Balmoral.

Pertaringa Vineyards lies in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges, the perfect location for grape growing with the temperate environment and the deep clay and loam soils. The soils, which are overlaying with small pebbles, provide good drainage and water retention properties. The use of weather stations and moisture monitors enables us to maintain a level of controlled stress on the vines. This technology tells exactly when the vines need water for their important growing periods, primarily during flowering, fruit set and verasion.

The vines are trellised according to the specific needs of each variety. Most of the varieties are two-wire vertical shoot positioned while some of the others are three-wire vertical shoot positioned. This is done to make it easier to harvest as well as create the ideal microclimate for the berries. All the vines are pruned in order to control vigour and crop levels using a combination of hand pruning and mechanical pruning depending on the variety. In the summer the vines are topped and trimmed cutting the shoot tips off to encourage lateral growth and make the vines easier to access.

Pertaringa Vineyard is surrounded by magnificent stands of native gum trees. Staff at Pertaringa, together with volunteers from Greening Australia's Bushcare have planted native trees and have revegetated and rehabilitated the creek that runs through the vineyard. Other environmentally minded decisions made at Pertaringa are to include Integrated Pest Management to pests. An example of this is to use bacteria, rather than insecticides, and the use of Seaweed with other natural sprays is used as alternatives to chemical based sprays.

Harvest is the busiest time of year in the vineyard. Berry and bunch sampling with lab analysis let us know when the grapes are ready for the specified wine style. Irrigation is reduced to the bare minimum allowing the varietal flavours to intensify. Most of the grapes are machine harvested, and always at night to ensure swift delivery to the winery during the coolest hours of the early morning (minimising oxidation).

The vineyard management at Pertaringa guarantees the highest quality grapes for all the grape buyers. This is evident with the continual demand for the grapes from Pertaringa Vineyard from Australia's top wine producers. The vineyard manager and the winemaker select premium parcels of the vineyard for the Pertaringa Wines, ensuring that each vintage will be of the highest quality.
