Wine Of The Week

Harewood Estate Porongurup Riesling, Great Southern 2013 $22 Value: great

Harewood owner-winemaker James Kellie produces some of the finest, most precise riesling in the country, from the various sub-regions of WA’s Great Southern. His Mt Barker and Frankland are also superb but Porongurup is the finest. With a light-medium yellow hue, the wine has intense lime aromas and mineral and citrus palate flavours which are very lively, and finish cleanly dry and zesty. It has great energy and an aftertaste that carries on and on. A superb wine to drink now or cellar. Now to 2023. 12 per cent alcohol. 95/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: pan-fried whiting; baked snapper; deep-fried flathead and chips
