Bec Hardy Clare Valley Riesling 2020. Review from Jane Masters MW:
"Grapes for Bec Hardy’s 2020 came from a single vineyard in Auburn at the southern end of the valley. A white wine with good fruit intensity, fresh apples, limes and other white fruits lead to a steely mineral finish. While I recommend drinking over the next couple of years, I am keen to see how it develops over time – and suspect it will last well beyond that becoming more honeyed and richer in flavour. RRP $30. Serve at 6c. Alc 12.5% Drink now to 2023. Food match: Fish tacos with citrus-avocado salsa"

Not many other wines on OzBargain come with international Master of Wine endorsement from a sixth -generation Halliday 5* and Top 100 wine producer. Wines of pedigree and provenance.

  • Anyone tried this and able to speak to the RRP of $30?

      Hi Stern. Brand new first release, released in January 2021 so I’d be surprised if more than one or two people in Australia had ordered it. I saw it for the first time as a finished product just yesterday. The wine has been made for our Canadian distributor whom Jane Masters MW selects the wines for. There’s a small volume left over. Cheers RD :-)

  • Definitely not a $30 wine.

    Even at $80 a case I would pick Annie's Lane Riesling over this

    • When did you drink this one when it was only just released?

      • Never said I drank it.

        I just don't believe in the RRP of $30/wine.
        There is a reason why this is not ranged at your Dan's/BWS/Liquorland/First Choice - at that price it does not stack up against alternatives.

        If you want to charge $30 for a Riesling, you need serious pedigree to compete - multiple awards, an execellent brand name, etc.

        I gave the example of Annie's Lane - can be often had at under $10/bottle when on promo and an excellent drink.

        OP - FWIW I do like your Pertaringa wines

          As a number of our other wines are, it'll be online with Dan's in a week or two unless it sells out in the meantime, given the limited availability. :-)
          As a very recent release (a couple of weeks) it takes time to get things moving.
          Like Penfolds, we do make some wines for cellar door, database, limited release or export only and not solely for Dan's or others.
          We have a great relationship with Dan's as a long standing forty year old brand with multiple accolades we're grateful to them for recently acquiring the remaining 2017 vintage of the 99pt Tipsy Hill Cabernet Sauvignon - several thousand bottles.
          Cheers

        • So how would you pick something over another that you have no clue? slaps forehead.

    That’s a shame you feel that way. I’d be happy to refund you in full if you haven’t been satisfied with the wine. Please DM me your order details. Cheers RD.

      In the interests of transparency - after 7 hours, no DM received.

  • Pewsey Vale current release, Knappstein current release, various Jim Barry current releases and several others are all good value and more importantly they are very nice in the glass right now. Pewseys age wonderfully so do Knappsteins.

    These are leftover export wines and 20 bucks delivered.

    While Bec Hardy might say; " I am keen to see how it develops over time" and then says; " Drink now to 2023" her understanding of time may differ to other people. 2020 to 2023…

    @OP. I'll take you on at $20 del but factoring in delivery costs that your waving…this is what? A $10-$12 wine, possibly less? I've had a couple of good ones at that price range but not a lot of Rieslings from Clare+Eden Valleys I have to admit.

    Look forward to tasting it. if it's mediocre then they get drunk and used in cooking but if they match up to M's Hardy's idea's then we'll put 3 away.

    Cheers.

      Hi Luc

      Thanks for the post. You are right, lots of great Eden and Clare Valley Rieslings. We just drank a Penfolds 2020 Eden Valley at lunch at Magill Estate and have a magnum of Grosset 2017 (JH 98) on the way for a birthday celebration.

      The commentary in the original post comes not from Bec. It comes from Jane Masters, Master of Wine (MW) a wine reviewer based in the UK/France who selects wines for our Canadian distributor.
      Jane's comments re drinking window are not incongruent as you seem to suggest. Again to quote Jane, she says:
      "While I recommend drinking over the next couple of years [to 2023], I am keen to see how it develops over time – and suspect it will last well beyond that becoming more honeyed and richer in flavour."

      The wine comes in at $80/6pk - around $13/btl. Trade off is you have to buy a six pack. Therefore, we're happy to extend the wholesale/export price as we don't have to mess around with single bottles.
      Happy drinking.
      Cheers
      Richard
