Harewood is always such a solid and reliable producer. Year after year they deliver the goods on quality, affordable vino and 2019 has, once again proven to be a strong vintage. With 63% savvy bee and 37% semillon (for those of you playing at home) from the cooler realms of Great Southern, you can expect all the usual flavour suspects; splashes of passionfruit and tropical gorgeousness sitting comfortably alongside a core of elegant and citrusy lemons and grapefruits and inviting grassiness bookending the super value drop. Using only the purest ‘free run’ juice and minimal fining, Harewood have nailed the balance of purity and elegance with texture and complexity. Pair with any/all of the grilled seafood you can find.

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.
