2017 Harries Grenache Shiraz

About a month has past since the release of the new vintage of our Harries Grenache Shiraz and we still just can’t get enough. The 2017 vintage is proving to be an exceptional one, we are sure that this vintage will delight you as much as it has delighted us. 

2017 Harries is rich in flavour bringing hints of mint to the senses, displaying characteristics of strawberry and quince with a fruity vibrancy on the palate. Harmoniously balanced, generous of length and well developed complexity, Harries finishes off with long soft tannins, carried by spicy and dry notes rounding out this exceptional red. Aged through four years of maturation in French oak then carefully rested in bottle this wine has had the treatment akin to royalty.

A perfectly balanced wine with 80% Grenache 20% Shiraz, Harries makes a particularly exceptional food pairing, having unparalleled versatility. It sings in concert with dishes both rich and subtle, inspiring dinners that flow with uninhibited plenty.

The 2017 Harries will become a rare gem in cellars of the future. We’re enjoying drinking it alongside museum vintages of Harries, the 2015 and 2016 in particular to compare the striking differences as well as the comforting, familiar similarities.

We are happy to be sharing this wine with everyone of you and we are sure that you will enjoy it as much as us.
