At Richardson Shiraz Hard Hill Road 2016 showcases Intense dark berry and black pepper aromas with hints of violet, chocolate, some cassis and cured meats.

After a 10-year search, winemaker Adam Richardson selected the very special terroir of his Hard Hill Road Vineyard site for the production of his Chockstone and Hard Hill Road labels. With its own special microclimate, the Hard Hill Road Vineyard’s cool ripening conditions and naturally low-yielding vines produce wines with layers of intense flavours and a velvety structure. Like many of the best wines in this historic region, A.T. Richardson wines are approachable in their youth and possess the potential to age gracefully. In A.T. Richardson Wines, you will taste the rich and enticing flavours of the Grampians and get caught up in the excitement of wine, adventure, and life.
