OCTOBER 2015

 

 

2015 Howard Park Miamup Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
“…A fragrant nose of spiced citrus overlaid with lemon verbena with a hint of vanilla leads to a textural, rich, lively palate that tingles with quince, gooseberry and lime with a fine grained acid - finishing off with a clean, zesty, refreshing aftertaste. This has all the hallmarks of a fine wine – texture, balance, complexity and length! It’s little surprise that it won the Trophy for Best Dry White Blend at this year’s Royal Adelaide Wine Show…”
Wine of the Week – Michael Hince, Heard it Through the Grapevine


2014 Howard Park Cellar Collection Chardonnay
“Beautifully crafted, finely honed wine, still on the youthful side but that is minor. It will come good soon, certainly by the summer of 2015. 94 points and well worth $32.”
94 points – Tony Keys, Key Review of Wine


2013 Howard Park Flint Rock Shiraz
“Howard Park’s Flint Rock Shiraz hasn’t put a foot wrong over the past few years.
This release has drinkability written all over it. It isn’t the deepest or darkest wine but there’s plenty of black cherried fruit and the accompanying slips of nutty chocolate, dry spice and clove mean that complexity/interest isn’t in question. Mid-weight red, done well.”
91 points – Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front


2013 Howard Park Cellar Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz
“One of WA’s best in this genre, featuring 70 per cent cabernet, Medium-bodied with earthy complexity. Pleasurable.”
4/5 Stars – Tony Love, The Sunday Times Magazine
