Expert Reviews

From one of the two oldest vineyards in the Porongurup subregion. The flowery bouquet leads into a fine, yet intense palate typical of young Porongurup riesling; lime zest and vibrant minerally acidity run the length of the beautifully balanced palate. The end point of this lovely wine is far distant, likely later than '34. James Halliday, Rating 96, 26th July 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Crystalline, pale lime yellow in colour.

Aroma

Perfumed, more so than scented, with citrus blossom and a hint of citrus oil richness.

Palate

Intense flavours of lemon lime citrus are washed with a shale-like minerality. A defining thread of fine liner acidity provides length and structure to finish the wine.

This wine has great intensity, definition and length of flavour.

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
