2014 Harewood Estate Porongurup Riesling
Color, nose and palate
An exceptionally brilliant, pale, almost steely color with youthful green tinges. Intense floral, citrus and passionfruit fragrance enhanced by a mineral spicy vibrancy. A seamless palate, with initial flavours of green apple and passionfruit leading to more austere lemons and limes.
Cellaring potential: This wines youthful intensity and fruit-driven vibrancy can be enjoyed over the next two years. Cellaring for up to 10 years will be rewarded with the more complex, toastier and textured wine that is a classic aged cool-climate Riesling.

The Riesling grapes were sourced from very old plantings (30 years old) in the cool climate vineyards of the Porongurup Range in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia.
Only the finest, most pristine, “free-run” juice was used in the production of this wine resulting in a wine of outstanding elegance, free from harsh, phenolic character. The fine structure is testament to the care taken during this wines production.
A cool ferment in stainless steel, minimal fining and the use of screw caps are all further steps towards capturing the inherent delicacy of this cool climate variety.
