James Halliday’s (JH) wine of the year is a Riesling from Duke’s winery in the Porongurups. We have a dry Porongurup Riesling 2017 from Harewood Estate to which JH has awarded 96 points (outstanding) and a dry Riesling 2015 from Mount Trio which is in the Porongurups. Screw cap closures, in my opinion, enhance the cellaring potential.
Besides Chardonnay and Sauvignons we have a straight Semillon from Apricus Hill plus Semillon/Sauvignon blends which excel in this area.
Shiraz is the big hitter in Australia and we have several. If we can second guess a good vintage then we will buy for the long term. Currently we have:-
Bellarmine Shiraz 2010 (see News section)

Harewood Estate Reserve Shiraz 2013
