  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The grapes for this wine were sourced from one of the original plantings of Riesling in the Porongurup ranges 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. The wine exhibits fine floral and citrus notes enhanced by an underlying flinty vibrancy. An elegant, seamless palate with initial flavours of green apple and grapefruit leading to a crisp mid-palate with an underlying slate character finishing with classic mouth-watering lemons and limes

  • 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.”

    Brings apple blossom to join citrus on the welcome mat, the palate responding in true Porongurup fashion with delicacy and intensity co-existing on the mirror walls of the scintillating palate, length its ultimate triumph. The fruit and its maker should both take a bow.

    By contrast, there is a whiff of black pepper in this Porongurup edition that sets it apart. In fact, it’s perhaps too tangy, but so pure. There’s an extra layer itching to get out here – a murmuring of dense fruit just waiting to jump out from behind that acidity. If anything, it needs a few more months in bottle. Gee there is quality to be had regardless, and I actually enjoy the tautness too. Best drinking: Open it now, but don’t be unhappy about waiting until late this year, early next, or come back in five.
