James Kellie (formerly of Howard Park) has had extraordinary success in a relatively short time, winning trophies galore and for 10 consecutive years awarded the elusive 5 Red Star rating (the highest recognition possible from James Halliday, Australia’s most influential wine critic awarded to top 5% of wineries for “a consistent record of excellence”).
Harewood Estate vineyard is located in the spectacularly beautiful coastal town of Denmark in Western Australia’s Great Southern wine region, 5 hours south east of Perth. The Great Southern wine growing region of WA provides unmatched versatility and quality for a winemaker. From the elegance and delicacy of cool climate Riesling to the restrained intensity of Denmark Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The texture and richness of Mount Barker Cabernet and the structure, weight and complexity of Frankland River Shiraz. Harewood Estate showcases this potential in a range of wines produced from grapes grown in select, low yielding vineyards.
This wine is a blend of several blocks of Pinot (clones D5V12, 114, 115 and 777) growing in our two vineyards in the cool-climate, maritime region of Denmark, Western Australia. The Harewood vineyard, planted in 1988 is a warmer site and is complemented by the higher altitude, more maritime Apricus Hill vineyard, planted in 1995.
James has really lifted the bar with this new 2018 release… very smart entry level Pinot brimming with strawberry, cherry, dark fruits and forest floor.
Review for 2017
91 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front “Denmark (sub-region) pinot noir. Machine picked, cultured yeast, six months in 15% new French oak. Light in colour but there’s plenty going on. It’s a meaty, spicy pinot. Cherries are the backdrop, or the conduit, with woody spices flying hither and thither. Tangy finish, complete with mint and anise notes. It’s a most enjoyable wine to drink, it has to be said.”
