John Lewis’ Reviews
4.5 stars – John Lewis (Newcastle Herald): With 14% alcohol and bright garnet hues, the Apricus Hill 2022 Denmark Single-Vineyard Pinot Noir has scents of violets and juicy raspberry front-palate flavour. The middle palate features cherry, blueberry, spicy and savoury oak and a finish of chalky tannins. The apricus name comes from Latin for warmed by the sun.
4.5 stars – John Lewis (Newcastle Herald): This fine Harewood Estate 2022 FLUX-III Denmark Chardonnay has jasmine scents and is green-tined straw in the glass. The front palate has elegant nectarine flavour, the middle palate loquat, honeydew melon, lime zest and vanillin oak characters and the finish refreshes with flinty acid.
5 stars – John Lewis (Newcastle Herald): Deep purple and with 14% alcohol, this Harewood Estate 2020 Reserve Great Southern Cabernet Sauvignon brings forth potpourri aromas and plush blackberry on the front palate. The middle palate displays bramble jelly, Cherry Ripe chocolate, mint and cedary oak elements and the finish has smooth earthy tannins.
