expert reviews about
Howard Park Great Southern Chardonnay
James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
From the estate vineyards in Mount Barker, Porongurup and Margaret River; hand-picked, and chilled overnight before 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.To 2024Australian Wine Companion
