Geoff Hardy's family have been making Australian wine since 1857. Geoff grew up amongst the most distinguished vineyards in our land and he knows from good red wine. He retains access to the finest fruit in McLaren Vale and is the man behind many of our nation's most memorable vintages. Undercover is a moniker that Geoff has assigned to a collation of exceptional parcels, albeit bottled behind an abstruse label to secrete the provenance of a spectacular Shiraz.

There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole..

West Cape Howe
It is the quality of the Great Southern region and the combination of skill and artistry between viticulture and winemaking that makes drinking West Cape Howe wines a truly memorable experience

Within the Great Southern wine region is a collection of five sub regions, each with their own unique topographical qualities. These regions include Denmark, Albany, Porongurup, Mount Barker and Frankland River. With a typical maritime climate, the coastal towns of Denmark and Albany experience relatively mild summer temperatures and cool wet winters. These conditions enable fruit to ripen slowly and gradually, thus developing subtle layers of fruit intensity and are well suited to the earlier ripening varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot. Further inland to Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River, the days are slightly warmer, and the nights are cooler (with a higher risk of frosts). With greater sunshine hours, these sub-regions are where Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz varieties thrive.

West Cape Howe

Situated 450 kilometres south of Perth, the coastline of Denmark rates among the most beautiful in the South-west. Denmark is commonly dubbed the town where the forest meets the sea. Towering eucalyptus including karri, marri and jarrah trees along with pristine, blue coastal bays, makes Denmark the perfect playground for bushwalking, fishing, surfing, swimming, snorkelling and boating.

Just a stone's throw away from the picturesque township of Denmark, West Cape Howe is one of the most southerly points, rising some 250 metres above the Southern Ocean. It is thought that the first explorers to the Cape Howe coastline were Dutch seafarers in 1627 aboard their Fluyt class vessel Gulden Zeepaard (Golden Seahorse). The rugged coastline is now home to some stunning beaches and great rock climbing sites.

It is for this reason that the West Cape Howe winemakers dedicate many months leading up to vintage, visiting and monitoring vineyards throughout the Great Southern region - ensuring that only the best parcels of fruit are selected and picked for the West Cape Howe range of wines.

The Landsdale Vineyard, located just outside the township of Mount Barker, Western Australia, provides the winery with the majority of the fruit. Planted in 1989, the Landsdale Vineyards are some of the most mature in the Great Southern, with some 80 hectares under vine. Premium fruit is also sourced from areas such as Denmark, Albany, Bridgetown and Boyup Brook.
