Harewood Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
- Great Southern
Specially selected parcels of premium cabernet fruit from Great Southern (Porongurup, Denmark and Frankland River for those of you playing at home) were brought together to form a complex and precise drop sure to give ‘nods of approval’ to so many of our cool climate red lovers. Inky and dense in the glass with brooding aromas of cassis, mint and cedar awakening the senses. Over the palate, you’re welcomed with fresh black cherries and suggestions of liquorice and spice thanks to some serious time maturing in French oak. The finish will linger with chocolate, coffee and lashings of just-picked raspberries. The delicate tannins are perfectly in place with the fruit, so enjoy now and let the good times roll.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Originally established in 1988, Harewood Estate is today owned by ex-Howard Park winemaker, James Kellie and his family. Since purchasing the winery in 2003, we have seen Harewood's reputation skyrocket to stardom in the past 10 years. Establishing itself as one of Western Australia's best wineries, they are celebrated for their award-winning cool climate red and white wines. The recipient of 9 consecutive Halliday 5 Red Star ratings since being in Kellie's hands, we anticipate many more accolades to come for this classy producer.
Great Southern is, believe it or not, the country's largest wine region at 200km east to west, and 100km north to south. No surprise then, that the countryside and climate changes dramatically from end to end, and that there are five subregions: maritime Albany; neighbouring Denmark; Frankland River, favouring Bordeaux reds; cooler Mount Barker renowned for stunning Riesling; and even cooler, granitic, continental Porongorup where Cabernet defers to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As a large region to source from, variety and style can vary immensely, but you can count on quality, as there are so many great vines to choose from.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
