2021 Howard Park Miamup Chardonnay
The most critical site selection is applied to selected Margaret River vineyard sites for growing Howard Park’s Miamup Chardonnay. Each location adds to the complexity of the wine due to the soils, aspects, clones and microclimates unique to the respective sites. Applied to this rich collection of choice is the skill and enthusiasm of our winemaking team that draws upon traditional winemaking methods to craft a layered, flavoursome and complex wine.
Pale lemon with flecks of gold, this Chardonnay harnesses a full range of flavour, all the while remaining agile, composed, and cohesive. From its enticingly sweet notes of marzipan, poached pear, vanilla, sage, and candied peach to the crisp aromas of lemon curd, orange blossom, mandarin, and citrus pith, this wine treads a graceful line between confectionery tones and ripe citrus fragrance. The palate is lithe, revealing shimmers of exotic fruit while being led primarily by a pink grapefruit acidity, culminating in a dry finish with hints of lime and subtle vanillin oak.
Enjoy with poached chicken, pickled vegetables and rice noodles, topped with crispy XO prawns.
