Let’s get back into the sample pile, hey?
I always feel like Harewood has a split personality – delicate, terroir-focused Riesling on the one hand, ripe, ‘are you sure these are from the cool part of WA?’ style reds on the other.
This Harewood Estate Shiraz Cabernet 2020 is a perfect case in point. It’s a ripe, plump, oak-forward, choc berry with saturated plum and fruit cake ripeness. It’s hardly subtle or regional (although there is a little pepper steak Great Southern lift), but this is such a chunky mouthful of dark red flavour.
A bargain, regardless.
Best drinking: no hurry, will still be alive in five years. 17/20, 90/100. 14.5%, $22. Harewood Estate website. Would I buy it? A glass for sure.
