Harewood Porongurup Riesling 2015
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 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. The fine structure is testament to the care taken during this wines production.

It only takes a millisecond for the elfin finesse of utterly seamless fruit and acidity to turn on the neon lights saying “welcome to Porongurup”. Radically different in style to its Denmark sibling, but the two wines are sublime. However, this has the greater future. Towering stands of eucalypt and massive rounded granite knobs give way to granite soils and sweeping views.
