The Great Southern district lies about 7 hours’ drive South of Perth in Western Australia. As wine regions go, they don’t come much more isolated than this! Bordered to the South by the Antarctic Ocean and to the West by the Southern Indian Ocean, this is a cool, green and wet region, perfect for producing cool climate wine styles.
Harewood Estate is without doubt the up and coming star of this still-unknown part of Australia and their winemaker James Kellie is surely the master of his trade in this region. James Halliday, guru of the Australian wine scene, has rated this one of his few 5 star “outstanding” wineries in each of the past 7 years. Buy these wines now before the wine world discovers them properly and prices head skywards!
