The 2014 edition of James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion has been released and Howard Park has been listed as a Five-Red Star Winery. This is the 15th year for Howard Park's five star rating.

The complete list of published scores can be read here:


Howard Park Porongurup Riesling 2012 - "BEST OF RIESLING"

“Some development evident in the straw-green colour, but this is a positive virtue given the intensity and complexity of the power of the lime and lemon palate, power amplified by the lingering acidity. Slightly atypical for Porongurup, offering so much now, but don’t look the gift horse in the mouth.”

Howard Park Great Southern Riesling 2012 - "BEST OF RIESLING"

“Bright, gleaming straw-green; filled with juicy lime fruit and crisp, crunchy acidity, the length a given; the aftertaste lingers, and echoes the flavours of the mid-palate. Lovely wine.”

Howard Park Chardonnay 2011

“Light straw-green; an extremely elegant Chardonnay, wild yeastfermented in French oak; the grapes were picked at precisely the right moment to allow the full range of varietal flavours to express themselves, and the new oak was also judged to perfection. Modern Chardonnay style at its best.”

Howard Park Scotsdale Shiraz 2011

“Light to medium purple-red; a fragrant and lively wine that plays a symphony of red fruits, spice and a counterpoint of liquorice; the tannins are fine, and line, length and balance are all impeccable.”

Howard Park Flint Rock Shiraz 2010

“Deep but bright purple-crimson; sourced from vineyards in the Frankland River and Mount Barker subregions of Great Southern; this is an intense and full-bodied Shiraz with great balance to its panoply of black fruits, spice, licorice and oak flavours; the texture and balance guarantee a long life.”
