Record-breaking winter rains filled our reservoirs and recharged the soil. Spring and early summer were warm, leading to very strong growth in the vines. The rest of the summer was more typical with warm days and cool nights, providing perfect conditions for the developing grapes. Our yields for the season were slightly lower than average and the resulting wines are classic—with complex flavors and our signature brightness on the palate.
Aromas of Bartlett pear and Red Delicious apple are framed beautifully with layered notes of cedar and a hint of toasted oak. The entry is elegant and smooth with ripe flavors of pear, pineapple and lemon complemented by a touch of baking spices and almonds. The finish is long and structured with mouthwatering acidity.

Winery Chef Chris Kennedy states this vintage of Harmony shines with shellfish! For a dynamic culinary adventure, try pairing with grilled prawns or perfectly seared jumbo scallops to add a caramelized lushness. The rich acidity of this wine is also a perfect match for salty, creamy cheeses like goat cheese or sheep’s milk feta.
