Hardys Red Wines

With a passion for growing wines recognised worldwide for its excellence, the family-owned business founded in 1853 produces a range of white and red wines. Focusing on creating new tastes by growing grapes in a mix of regions located in cold and warmer climates, Hardys continues to add to their inventory of wine varietals. Check out the available inventory of wines produced in different eras and regions to discover which grape variety you'd like to try.

Hardys Winemaking Philosophy

Gleaning from the expertise of the original winemaker Thomas Hardy, current winemakers focus on the quality of the wines and their unique characters. They haven't strayed far from original practices since some of the earliest equipment purchased in 1876 housed at the Tintara Winery is used to make each bottle.


Hardy wines, such as 1970s red wines, may include a bottle of Hardys 1971 Nottage Hill shiraz to toast an anniversary or celebrate another milestone. When searching for other vintage varieties, consider the inventory of 1990s red wines, such as a 1999 Eileen Hardy shiraz, which was named after the founding matriarch. She went on to take over the business after the founder died and received recognition for her contribution to the Australian winemaking industry.


Hardys has vineyards in various growing regions, such as McLaren Vale, Clare Valley and Frankland River. The winemakers routinely combine grapes from dissimilar regions; this helps intensify the flavour by giving the wine a greater depth. Regardless of which region the grapes come from, Hardys' ultimate goal is to create wines that have a balance of fruitiness, integrity, elegance and originality.

Grape Varieties

Consider a Hardys red wine like Stamp merlot; it has a deep colour and the scent and flavour profile is a mixture of blackberries and cherries with hints of herbal notes and liquorice. Another Hardy favourite is the HRB Pinot Noir; expect to experience dark fruits, strawberries, spices and a trace of French oak. Serve the wines with cheese, fruit salad or a favoured spicy food.
