Harewood Estate Denmark Riesling 2021
There is apparently not a lot of Riesling planted in the Denmark sub region of Western Australia’s Great Southern, but on the strength of this wine, it might be time to consider planting a little more. Or a lot more. Similar production method here of free run juice only, then a lengthy ferment at cooler temperatures in stainless steel. Green gold in colour. This is more mineral, saline and oyster shell in character. Florals emerge and then some powerful grapefruit notes. The grapefruit really steps up on the palate. There is very good length here and impeccable balance, elegance and concentration. Like this a lot and it surely has an exciting future over the next fifteen to twenty years.
