2022 Howard Park Flint Rock Chardonnay
The name Flint Rock epitomizes the fine mineral structure and savoury elegance of wines grown in the wildly remote and awesomely beautiful Great Southern region of Western Australia. This Howard Park regional selection draws upon the varietal heroes of the three primary subregions; Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River, to make wines that showcase regional typicity. This wine reveals fine acidity and minerality from the ancient soils found in Great Southern vineyards.
Subtle oak, white peach and lime blossom intermingle with saline notes, reflecting the wine’s Great Southern origins. Pink Lady apple, grapefruit and Meyer lemon drive the palate with savoury elements of salted cashew and nutmeal providing complexity and depth. The judicious use of French oak and lees stirring provide a creaminess and weight balanced by crisp acidity and granite minerality typical of our Mount Barrow vineyard.
Enjoy with chicken liver parfait, pear, red wine gel and brioche.
Drink now and over the next few years.
