Lingering stone fruit richness, fresh citrus and a crisp mineral acidity.
A fresh and vibrant aperitif style when young, yet the abundant fruit and fine structure will allow the wine to evolve in flavour, structure and complexity over the next few years.

“I’ll confess, I don’t mind a glass of Sauvignon Blanc every now and then, and if I do drink one, every now and then, here’s the sort of wine I’d go for. Faintly tropical and blackcurrant bud, subdued herbal notes and an aniseed/vanilla perfume. It’s light and fresh in the mouth, combining a mildly creamy texture with lightly chalky grip. Lime and grapefruit are in the mix and the finish is crunchy and dry. Spot on. Touch and go for 94 points here.” Rating 93+ Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 10 October 2012
“Two thirds Great Southern, one third Margaret River comprise this wine. It's passionfruity, in essence, but there's floral things going on in the bouquet and a chalky phenolic grip for interest. Vibrant, zingy style. Slips across the palate." Rating 92 - Mike Bennie, WBM
“Interesting flavours in this wine: there is the expected and classic Sauvignon augmented with richer, slightly riper peach or even table grape flavour. I enjoyed it but as I am a noted Sauvignon dissenter please don’t tell anyone.” Rating 94 - Tony Keys - The Key Review of Wine
Winery Tasting Notes
The wine colour is limpid green
The aromas are fragrant, fresh and full of gooseberry, passion fruit, lime zest and elder flower.
Juicy yet fine, the palate has stone fruit richness, fresh citrus, exotic black currant , a crisp acidity and a fine mineral/talc finish. A wine with great varietal expression and complexity, lasting flavour and poise.
A fresh and vibrant aperitif style when young yet the abundant fruit and fine long structure will allow the wine to evolve in flavour, structure and complexity over the next few years. The Howard Park Sauvignon Blanc will drink well for the next 3 to 5 years.
