From free- run juice and partial barrel fermentation; there are distinct nuances of fresh- cut grass that persist through the bouquet and into the fore- palate, whereafter finely crafted gooseberry and fleeting tropical flavours take centre stage.

Winery Tasting Notes
A glistening silver green in colour.
A bouquet that is highly fragrant and very fresh. Exotic floral notes of elder flower and lime blossom mingle with black currant, gooseberry, passion fruit and lime zest.
Juicy yet fine, the palate has ripe stone fruit juiciness, custard apple richness, zingy citrus, a bright acidity and a linear/ mineral finish.
Char grilled squid dipped in a lemon and caper aioli.
A vibrant and exotic aperitif style when young with blossoming fruit and a fine long structure that will allow the wine to evolve in flavour and complexity over the next few years. The Howard Park 2013 Sauvignon Blanc will drink beautifully for the next 3 to 5 years.
