What do I think:  Dense, dark and delicious……seems to lack some finish as most Shiraz do for me.

What the Experts say: Hardys has been making wine in Australia’s McLaren Vale since 1853. In the glass, the Brave New World Shiraz is a deep, inky purple. Complex aromas and flavors include prune, coffee, floral note, rye bread and berry melange. Fine-textured and soft tannins give the wine length and structure. Serve with smoky barbecue.
