Hardys Crest Cabernet Shiraz Merlot 2019 1.5-litre box review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips


Made from mainly Syrah, with some robust Cinsault added in, this deep red wine smells and tastes like an old-fashioned sweet shop. Cherry and blackcurrant fruitiness is backed up with fudge and toffee flavours which are stopped from being too sweet with a sharp and warming edge. Interesting but a bit expensive.
