Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"The Howard Park Chardonnay is a selection from our individual vineyard sites located in the prime grape growing subregions of Western Australia; Mount Barker, Porongurup and Margaret River. Each site brings a unique complexity to the wine.

The elevated, cool, south facing sites of our Mount Barrow vineyard in Mount Barker provide an elegant fruit weight and linear acidity. The Porongurup vineyard, planted to the gin gin clone, gives restrained power whilst southern Margaret River’s contribution is opulent fruit and bright acidity.

Applied to this rich collection of vineyards, is the inspiration and skill of our winemaking team that draw upon traditional winemaking methods and the use of fine grain French oak to craft a layered, flavoursome and complex wine.

A clear lemon yellow in colour and a very complex bouquet full of new Chardonnay. Aromas of vanilla bean spice .lemon curd, nougat, a rising mineral flintiness and powerful pink citrus and white flesh nectarine fruits. The palate is rich and lively yet restrained and textured by a chalky/mineral thread. A little more than subtle, the fine grain French oak adds a bready complexity. The bright acidity gives length, clarity and finish to the wine."
97/100 James Halliday Wine Companion, January 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"From the estate vineyards in Mount Barker, Porongurup and Margaret River; hand-picked, and chilled overnight before being hand sorted, whole bunch-pressed direct to barrel (30% new French) for wild fermentation, matured on lees for 9 months, part with mlf. Iron fist in a velvet glove, more common with red wines than chardonnay, but this has awesome power, concentration and length to its pink grapefruit, white stone fruit and pistachio, nougat accents from the mlf."
95/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, May 2015 (2014 Vintage)
"Intensity of fruit. Long lines of flavour. Class. Balance. A general seamlessness. Citrus and grapefruit, spicy oak and gunmetal. It makes a serious impression."
