2023 Howard Park Sauvignon Blanc
In the cool, southern reaches of Western Australia, Sauvignon Blanc has the time to develop great varietal purity, intense flavour and structural exactness.
From this gift of nature, the winemaker can with confidence enhance, embellish, even temper the powerful, exotic and sometimes challenging expression to create a wine that is textured, layered and enriched to complement Sauvignon’s exuberant personality.
This wine boasts a lively bouquet marked by vibrant notes of guava, quince and lychee, harmoniously mingling with enticing undercurrents of candied citrus peel, passionfruit meringue, tonic water, lime pith, lemongrass and chamomile. These exotic and varied fragrances pave the way for a palate adorned with fine, sweet citrus flavours that tantalise as a tart, tangy acidity coats the mouth. Rich impressions of lime cordial, preserved lemon, and underripe stone fruit roll across the palate, culminating in a refreshingly crisp finish. Underlying this delightful full-fruited profile is a restrained use of oak, adding both texture and subtle notes of oatmeal and roasted almond. A wine of unwavering fruit purity and enduring persistence, it is crafted for effortless enjoyment, pairing perfectly with a wide variety of cuisines.
Drink with charred octopus, shaved fennel, smoked eggplant and black garlic salt.
