Tasting Note

Margaret River can offer some of the most scintillating examples of Shiraz, as far as quality goes, the multi-award winning Howard Park can do no wrong in our eyes.

This is named after winery owner Jeff Burch’s father and what a great tribute it is. Top-end mature shiraz overflowing with complexity. Something about the soil of the region lends an attractive violet aroma to the nose as well as supporting fruits such as dark plums, blueberries and raspberry entwined with pepper and ginger spices. Seamless oak integration and lingering rich tannins, this stays with you long after it’s gone.  You’ll be diving back for more, intoxicated by its completeness.

Winemaking

The Howard Park Leston Shiraz is a single vineyard wine from the Leston vineyard in Margaret River. Vinification occurred in open top stainless steel fermenters with gentle hand-plunging, which is integral to tannin development and flavour extraction. After fermentation and some post fermentation maceration, the grapes were gently basket-pressed to oak barriques. A small component of the Shiraz was pressed early to finish fermentation in barrel and enhance palate texture, complexity and oak infusion.


Food Recomendation

Any variety of beef dishes cooked long and slow would work wonders with this wine.

Press

  • Deep, dark colour, with a dark and brooding character to match the ample black fruits, ironstone minerality and licorice are all wound up tightly by well-handled oak; the palate is sweet-fruited and generous on entry, with the backbone of structure providing a long and harmonious ride to the extended finish."
