Gold medal Collie-based wine now in China

Collie-based winery Harris River Estate’s gold-medal-winning 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is now being enjoyed in restaurants and supermarkets in eight provinces in China.

The Harris River “cab sav” was chosen in a blind tasting open tender process that was open to wineries across the South West, including Margaret River.

“It is great to see Harris River Estate now standing up in our own right as a quality wine producer in the region,” said owner Julie Hillier.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon was also recently awarded a gold medal by the Wine Showcase Magazine, an industry-based, independent body that is well-respected by many wine connoisseurs for its blind tasting assessments.

Harris River Estate has previously won gold medals for two of its three white wines from acclaimed wine critic James Halliday and gold medals for its 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon in the Wine Showcase Magazine in 2015.

Harris River Estate in Western Australia’s Golden South West Region, is a completely self-sufficient single vineyard producer. Its high-quality wines are produced, processing and bottled on site. The family-run Estate has on-site accommodation, equestrian facilities, a micro-brewery and three-level function, cellar door and conference centre.
