Geoff Hardy Lagrein 2015: Review
Lagrein is a red grape native to Trentino Alto Adige in the north-east of Italy. Genetically, it is related to teroldego grape; but here Geoff Hardy Lagrein is being made in South Australia’s Limestone Coast.
This is the second Geoff Hardy wine I’ve had this year, the first being in my pre-reviewing days when I had his superb gruner-veltliner from the Henty region of Victoria.
This wine is balanced, savoury medium bodied red, and a lot less fruit driven than most wines from South Australia. The tannin is quite restrained by way of comparison to its Italian counterparts which often have lots. Wine Companion gave it 92/100 points.
