In 2016 Hardys Tintara were fortunate to capture the essence of this great vintage to produce their newest limited release wine, the Hardys Tintara Reserve Grenache. Only produced in exceptional years, this wine has been made at the winery since the early 1990’s and was one of the first wineries in Australia to do so. In keeping with the contemporary nature of the wine, it was essential the wine be appropriately dressed.
The unique five-piece label depicts an original stained glass window which adorns the wall of the Eileen Room at the Hardys Tintara site. It incorporates Bacchus (the god of wine) astride a barrel shaped coat of arms, and dates back to 1891.
The texture and pearlescent nature of the paper stock made it the ideal selection in capturing the colour and essence of the stained glass window, while the Bacchus centrepiece features an alluring sculptured emboss
