2018 Howard Park Scotsdale Shiraz
Shiraz from the Frankland River and Mount Barker subregions of the Great Southern are blended to highlight the distinctive varietal and regional qualities of our best sites.
The expression of Shiraz from this cool, continental climate is characterised by an intensity and concentration of dark fruits with traces of spice, earth and guiding tannins.
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 full-bodied wine, shaped by 18 months 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 with osso bucco on polenta or a salad of bresola, shaved cauliflower & radicchio.
Drink now or cellar for up to 7 to 10 years.
