James Kellie (formerly of Howard Park) has had extraordinary success in a relatively short time, winning trophies galore and for 10 consecutive years the elusive 5 red star rating (the highest recognition possible from James Halliday’s, Wine Companion awarded to Australia’s top 5% of wineries for “a consistent record of excellence”.).
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 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. The Great Southern region produces some of the best Shiraz grapes in Australia.
The careful selection of vineyards has produced a wine that combines the licorice and black cherry of Frankland River Shiraz with the pepper and blackberry of cool climate Porongurup and Mount Barker Shiraz from the Great Southern, Western Australia.
The individual batches were fermented in small open fermenters and then matured in French oak barriques for 18 months. A light fining with egg whites prior to bottling has helped produce a softer rich fruit driven Shiraz.
A dense crimson colour with youthful purple hues. Rich aromas of plum jam, mocha and black pepper with spicy, toast French oak. Initial flavours of black cherry and mulberry leadto a rich mid palate of licorice and dark chocolate finishing with long fine tannins and the toasty spice and vanilla of premium French oak barriques. This is a classic and delicious cool climate shiraz. Will cellar well for up to 10 years as well. An absolute bargain!
