2022 Howard Park Swan Valley Grenache
The Howard Park regional selection draws upon the varietal heroes of the Western Australia’s premier grape growing regions to produce wines of exceptional typicity and character.
Located on the upper reaches of the Swan River to the east of Perth, Swan Valley is the oldest wine growing subregion in WA, renowned for its concentrated and flavourful warm climate varietals such as Grenache.
Bright, clear garnet in the glass the Swan Valley Grenache offers striking liquorice and allspice notes, overlayed with floral aromas of violet and hibiscus, and a hint of crushed slate minerality. A refreshing cranberry tartness greets the front palate before melding seamlessly with flavours of Rainier cherry and Satsuma plum. Well-balanced acidity, a supple viscosity and delicate tannins add texture and interest. This is an inviting and exuberant wine which is light enough to serve chilled on a summer’s day.
Enjoy alongside pork cutlets with spicy Asian slaw or chermoula roasted vegetables with chickpeas and couscous.
