Howling Wolves is one of the value 'sleeper' producers in the Margaret River, so it's worth getting a few bottles in and gathering your wolf pack around some beef spare ribs. Loads of dark fruits and choc-mint decorate the nose, whilst the palate is medium to fuller-bodied, sweetly-fruited and juicy, with licks of chocolate, a decent line of fine but solid tannins, bright acidity, and a tightly-wound finish that begs for a decent decant, or a couple more years in the cellar. Amazing value!
Just released and already a Gold Medal
winner at the 2013 Rutherglen Wine Show.
Beautifully complex and intriguing with
aniseed and violet aromas whispering
through deeper notes of blackcurrant,
dark chocolate and candied orange
peel, with a palate awash with cranberry
and blackberry flavours and a great
intensity and succulence. A sophisticated
maturation in French Oak Barriques yields
hints of vanilla with a seamless integration,
ultra-fine tannins and a gorgeous, delicate,
perfumed finish. Will age superbly and
reward for more than 10 years.
Appearance: A rich ruby to dark plum.
Nose: Complex and intriguing aromas of dried sage, aniseed
and violets, whispering through deeper notes of
black currant, dark chocolate and candied orange peel.
The sophisticated French Oak treatment provides hints
of graphite and vanilla with a palate awash with dark
cherry, cranberry and blackberry flavours with a touch
of cloves all moreishly enhanced by a tangy acidity to
provide great intensity of flavour and succulence.
Medium bodied and ultra-fine, structural tannins create a tight,
dry and delicate, perfumed finish.
Food: Porcini and herb crusted lamb, beef wellington,
Chinese roast duck, rabbit pate and dark chocolate.
Cellaring: Will age superbly for the next 10 years and beyond.
