Riesling Great Southern Western Australia
An assemblage of the finest fruit, picked off superior, high altitude vineyards on Mt Barker and the Porongurups, nourished by a continental pattern of warm days and cold nights, which translate into vibrant wines, full of zest and super fine citric minerality. Essential to the Howard Park style are the purest free run juices, which are tighter and more finely structured without any phenolic character, qualities that contribute to the excellence of Howard Park. Balance is maintained and crop levels are kept low, essential for Riesling of clarity and purity of expression, vibrancy and freshness.
Pale straw colour, pronounced green hues at the rim. Nose shows lime, granite and floral notes of apple blossom and jasmine. The palate has great focus and purity of fruit with a pithy lime and mineral texture balanced by clean acidity. The intense lime fruit characters drive through the finish which is tightly wound yet lingering with floral and wet stone hints.
