expert reviews about
2013 Howard Park Flint Rock Shiraz
Wine Companion (2013 Vintage) says
Mid-weight, clean and fruit-driven but with just enough earthen/dried spice input to keep it from seeming simple. Beautifully balanced. Will tick over in an unfussed manner for many a good year.
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
This is not unique in mounting a case for the Great Southern's ability to produce higher quality shiraz than elsewhere in WA; while only medium-bodied, the intensity and focus of its spicy black fruits, the silky tannins and sheer length are a total delight
James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Deep but bright purple-crimson; sourced from vineyards in the Frankland River and Mount Barker subregions of Great Southern; this is an intense and full-bodied shiraz with great balance to its panoply of black fruits, spice, licorice and oak flavours; the texture and balance guarantee a long life.
