From the Porongurups in the Great Southern, this wine is in its second year of release.
The Porongurup Riesling is the finest cut of free juice from two of the oldest vineyard plantings in the Porongurup sub-region. Both vineyards sit high yet on opposing shoulders of the volcanic outcrop that dominates the surrounding landscape.
The warm north facing site at an elevation of 333 m provides intense citrus fruit character to the wine, while the south facing site at 226M and cooled by the breezes off the southern ocean provides a hint of delicacy, white blossom perfume and restraint.

Winery Tasting Notes
Luminous pale lime/yellow in colour
A lemon blossom scent that is rich, sweet and reminiscent of the fruit to come.
The intense lemon lime citrus flavours of the palate are finessed with a shale-like minerality. A fine liner acidity provides length and structure to complete the wine.
In its youth, the Porongurup Riesling is bracing and bright in style, full of abundant fresh fruit, a mineral texture and tight acidity. In time the wine will develop a nut praline and poached citrus richness whilst retaining its linear acidity and stone-like minerality. Howard Park Rieslings will cellar for more than 10 years.
