Harewood Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2020


A Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc from a mix of Great Southern sub-regions, Denmark, the Porongurups and Frankland River. Maturation in new and seasoned French oak for a year, whereupon the wine underwent barrel selection and further blending, before another year in French oak. Deep maroon hue. The aromas include blackcurrants, chocolate, spices and some oak, which is still evident though in the process of melding. The wine is still a little closed at the moment, but expect it to blossom over the next few years. There is focus and balance, with mid-weight and decent length fruit supported by reasonably firm tannins. Better in a year and then can be enjoyed for a decade.
