Back in 1993 Geoff Hardy, a fifth generation descendant of the renowned Hardy wine family dynasty, having noticed the outstanding quality of the grapes produced in the Limestone Coast, brought together a group of wine loving friends to purchase a 430 acre property near Mundulla in one of South Australia's most picturesque wine regions. This founding circle of friends included Scott Collett, Rocco Melino, Roger Oakeshott, Grant Tilbrook, John Younger and Guido Zuccoli, and has recently been complimented by the addition of Simon and Karina Spier, and the multi award-winning winemaker Shane Harris to their team.
Over the following three years from their founding, and with the primary aim of growing premium quality fruit, the vineyard was planted out with international varieties suited to the site. Since then, an eclectic mix of emerging varieties have been added.
Readied to launch a new Sparkling Shiraz into their diverse portfolio of wines, Wirrega Vineyards engaged Chad Holman to create a new scintillating package, glistening with the recognisable identity of their current labels.
The new package features a shimmering star field backdrop, revealing the silhouette of an enigmatic body and overlaid with rich varietal colour. Textured by a delicate dot pattern, the metallised paper stock is further finished with touches of high-build gloss, complimenting the bespoke branded neck band.
