Enjoy a glass on its own or perfect with antipasto, shellfish or a grilled chicken salad.
9 months oak maturation.
Crystalline bright with a lemon skin colour.
Laced with aromas of honeysuckle and citrus blossom, peach skin, pear essence, vanilla and nougat.
The palate is rich in summer and citrus fruits, yet restrained by a chalkymineral thread that provides texture and drive. Subtle support from fine grain French oak adds further complexity. A bright lemon acidity gives length and finish to the wine.
The Howard Park Chardonnay is selected from two vineyards, our Mount Barrow vineyard in Mount Barker and our Allingham vineyard in Margaret River. Mount Barrow is dedicated to growing Chardonnay for still and sparkling wine. The unique attributes of this site include an elevation of 380M and a panorama of vineyard aspects from north to south facing. It is planted to the Chardonnay clones of Dijon origin. The Allingham vineyard is located in the cooler, southern sub region of Karridale, where a great degree of cloud cover and cooler breezes prevail over the ripening period. The aspect is south and the original plantings are Gin Gin clone.
