  • THE BRIEF
  • Harewood Estate is a boutique winery situated in Western Australia within the Great Southern region. Chief Winemaker James Kellie maintains a focus on producing superior expressions of cool-climate wine. The high quality of fruit is highlighted in Harewood's hoard of accolades sine 2004 – 33 Trophies in Australian and International wine shows.

    Winemaker James Kellie says, "The grapes for this wine were sourced from a single vineyard in the Mount Barker sub region of Western Australia's Great Southern wine region. Only the finest, more pristine, "free-run" juice was used in the production of this wine resulting in a palate of outstanding finesse, free from the harsh, phenolic characters and deeper colours associated with grape pressings. A long, cool ferment in stainless steel tanks, minimal fining and the use of screw caps are all further steps towards capturing the inherent delicacy of this cool climate variety."

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A brilliant, exceptionally pale straw colour with youthful green tinges on release. The wine exhibits intense floral, citrus and talc notes enhanced by an underlying spicy vibrancy. Initial flavours of passionfruit and mandarin are followed with a spicy mid-palate with hints of nectarine, and finishing with classic mouth-watering citrus. The fine structure is testament to the care taken during the production.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Established in 1988 in Denmark, Western Australia, Harewood Estate was bought by ex-Howard Park winemaker, James Kellie, and his family in 2003. Since then, the winery has moved forward in leaps and bounds. It has garnered many favourable reviews from renowned wine critics whilst collecting a swag of wine show medals and trophies along the way. Kellie prides himself on delving into the true expression of the Great Southern’s sub-regions of Denmark, Porongurup, Frankland River and Mount Barker using grape varietals such as Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. As Harewood Estate says, “The art is on the inside” of every bottle. The fruit is sourced from select, low yielding vineyards from each sub-region to produce cool climate wines James Halliday refers to as “Wines of exemplary quality and typicity.”

    The bouquet may be a little reticent right now, but the power of the palate is awesome, a touch of CO2 adding to, rather than detracting from, the power of the wine that takes the palate prisoner. The key to the door will materialise 5 years hence.

    Harewood's run of great Riesling continues. These 18s are a little broader than the taut and terrific '17s, but no less drinkable. This Mount Barker edition is a more grandiose wine compared to the linear and crystalline Porongurup but I'm still not sure which the winner is. A sense of classicness with a tangy, grapefruit driven palate. There's maybe more lime and even nectarine, as if a little South Aussie fruit has snuck into the blend, but still so long and pure. Another nice WA Riesling. Best drinking: I would love to drink it now. 18/20, 93/100. Would I buy it? Sure would.'
