Wines BY: Geoff Hardy
Shortly after leaving the family company in 1980, Geoff Hardy established Pertaringa, which has since continued to produce some of McLaren Vale's finest wines influenced by ideal Mediterranean style climate and terroir. The name Pertaringa means 'belonging to the hills' and originates from the local Kaurna indigenous language
2017 Pertaringa Lakeside Series - Chardonnay
Sourced from the premium South Australian regions of Limestone Coast and Adelaide Hills, this Chardonnay is made in a fresh, modern style with just a touch of oak. The nose offers subtle, elegant aromas of freshly picked green apples, as well as citrus notes of oranges and lemons. The palate is a well-balanced with tasty flavours of apples and lemons, complemented by crisp acidity on the refreshing palate. Try this wine with a chicken and spring vegetable risotto.
2017 Pertaringa Lakeside Series - Meritage Red
This Meritage, composed of Petit Verdot, Marbec and Merlot is a true European style food-friendly wine. The nose offers lively, plummy aromas with hints of ripe cherries and dried herbs, all melded together in this attractive bouquet. The well-structured palate displays bright, appealing flavours of plums and dark berries with a beautifully balanced finish.

2018 Pertaringa Lakeside Series
- Cabernet Sauvignon
The nose displays beautifully complex notes of plums, blackberries and a hint of cassis. The palate is smooth and well-rounded with plenty of blackberries and plums, complemented by well-integrated tannins. This is the perfect wine for a lamb on the spit or any other meaty main course.

2017 Pertaringa Traditional Series
- Over the Top Shiraz
The nose captures McLaren Vale in a glass, combining berry and cherry freshness with spicier elements and more than a hint of pepper. The palate is complex and dense with dark fruits, black pepper, cloves and licorice root, followed by powdery tannins and a beautifully long finish. Either way, its a big steak wine or a big-steak wine?
