Expert Reviews

A regional blend of old, low- yielding vines matured in French barriques (60% new) for 20 months. Excellent colour; it has that restraint cabernet has in its youth, slowly opening its arms to relax and welcome you with age (5+ years) when the fragrance of the bouquet will increase in scope and intensity, cedary nuances infused through the black fruits and slowly softening tannins. Rating 96 - drink by 2041, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes


The dense and dark ruby colour implies youth, richness and intensity.


Presently the bouquet is restrained yet suggestive of abundantly ripe dark berry fruits fine, sweet French oak spice. The promise of the nose washes the palate with dense blackberry and blackcurrant fruits, hints of sweet mint and freshly rubbed herbs.


Powerful and opulent, the palate is deftly cradled in well integrated ripe fruit and fine oak tannins and a soft acidity. A wine with a subtlety of presence that will blossom with time and age with grace.

Cellaring Potential

After 6 months of settling in the bottle the wine is released. The 2011 is an outstanding vintage of Abercrombie that will take time it's time to reach maturity yet will cellar well for more than a decade. This wine will drink at its best from 2015.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image


Howard Park Wines was established in 1986 and was one of the original pioneers of the Great Southern region. The founding owner of Howard Park, John Wade ventured west to Western Australia's South West with one belief: "I don't know any other region where you can produce both Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon as premium wines". This founding belief began the journey of Howard Park.

Now over 20 years on, Howard Park remains a family owned winery under the guidance of Jeff and Amy Burch. With a philosophy to produce wines of distinct regional character with an uncompromising commitment to quality Howard Park has forged an international reputation for their wines and an expanded range including single vineyard and multi regional wines from Margaret River and the Great Southern. 

"We have worked towards establishing Howard Park as a premium family wine company. This success will be measured by the work we do now for future generations."  Jeff Burch

Our Philosophy

This founding two region philosophy aligns with Howard Park's wine making philosophy which adopts an ethos for integrating the old with the new. Howard Park embraces modern technology whilst employing traditional wine making techniques and produces internationally recognised wines of the highest quality. As a result our Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz wines are only ever produced in very small quantities, but are noted for their rare balance of elegance and power with a proven history of ageing with increased complexity and interest.

"We have a simple philosophy; premium wine can only come from excellent fruit. Simply, we go to wherever the fruit grows best." Jeff Burch
