2018 Howard Park Scotsdale Shiraz 1.5L Magnum
Shiraz from the Frankland River and Mount Barker sub-regions of the Great Southern are blended to highlight the distinctive varietal and regional qualities of our best sites.
The expression of Shiraz from these cool, continental climates is characterised by an intensity & concentration of dark fruits with traces of spice, earth and guiding tannins.
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. A dark and opulent expression of cool climate Shiraz. The palate has dark plum, cherry, coffee ground flavours, nutmeg and soft spice and distinctive gravel characteristics from the ancient lateritic soils of our Scotsdale vineyard. This is a powerful and fullbodied wine, shaped by 18months maturation in a range of French oak barrels, adding flavour and texture. Evocative yet poised in structure; this is a dark and opulent expression of Great Southern Shiraz.
Drink alongside lamb ribs with five spice rub and hoisin glaze.
Drink now or cellar for 7 to 10 years.
