Expert Reviews

Some development in the colour is no issue, for it is tinged with green; the bouquet and fore-palate have ripe lime fruit to the fore, then crisp, minerally acidity balances and lengthens the palate, boding well for the future. James Halliday, Rating 94, 25th July 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Crystalline, pale lime yellow.

Aroma

Intense and lifted aromas of freshly zested lemon/lime citrus.

Palate

The palate is full of fresh citrus, nashi pear and green skin apple flavours that give depth and richness. Whilst defined by these rich fruit flavours, the palate is guided by a fine, mineral and citrus acidity that adds length and finish to the wine.

History

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
