2018 Howard Park Leston Shiraz 1.5L Magnum
The Howard Park Leston Shiraz was created from a selection of the best batches of Shiraz grown on our Leston vineyard (specifically, blocks 4 and 17) which is located in the Willyabrup sub-region of Margaret River. The soils in this vineyard are shallow lateritic gravels over sandy, clay loam.
Small parcels are hand-picked, and all batches are sorted to remove matter other than grapes, prior to fermentation. Fermentation occurs in open vat and closed stainless steel fermenters with diligent cap management to extract fine fruit tannin and strong varietal flavour.
The 1.5L magnum format is ideal for collectors and provides the opportunity to cellar this wine long term and preserve its expressive fruit flavours and complex structure to celebrate a milestone occasion.
Garnet in colour with a mouthfilling mix of black and red fruits; boysenberry, cherry plum, attractive leafy notes, hints of tobacco, spice and black olive. An elegant Shiraz from our Wilyabrup vineyard, powerful yet elegant with fine tannin and distinctive fine grained texture and flavour from 18 months maturation in a range of French oak barrels. A modern and beautifully balanced Margaret River Shiraz
Enjoy alongside barbecued lamb chops with anchovy remoulade.
