Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front "Adelaide Hills shiraz these days is pretty keen to run away with itself and so you need to keep it in check. This wine does that nicely. It has flavour and style but it’s fresh to the point of friskiness. It’s the opposite of the Bella’s Garden release; this has character aplenty. Jubey cherries, plums, woodsmoke, twigs and juicy/delicious blueberries. It’s complex now but it will develop more. Like."
Joe Czerwinski (robertparker.com) "Made with 20% whole bunches, the 2017 Harriet's Garden Shiraz shows some herbal-stemmy notes, hints of green peppercorn and vibrant raspberry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with a ripe, creamy texture leading into a long, silky finish. It's a lovely blend of herbal-savory and ripe fruit that should drink well for up to a decade or so."
