|Winery Name:||Howard Park Wines, Australia
|Other Details:||OUR HISTORY
Since inception in 1986, Howard Park's reputation of crafting balanced and elegant wines with uncompromising commitment and much pride and passion, has become internationally recognised.
Unveiling the secret to their success is a simple philosophy.
Commitment to Western Australia's best grape growing regions of Margaret River and the Great Southern, hence winery locations in these two areas and the introduction of regional wines.
Committment to sourcing the very best fruit from specific vineyards and in many cases specific blocks on these vineyards in Western Australia's Margaret River and cool climate Great Sourthern regions.
Commitment to traditional winemaking skills, new French oak and careful blending procedures to ensure perfect harmony is achieved. Commitment to fulfilling a passion of family wine.
Premium wine can only come from excellent fruit and it is this reason that Howard Park's locations, in the heart of the Great Southern and Margaret River, were chosen.
The sourcing of this fruit from specific vineyards, and in many cases specific blocks on the vineyard, is the single most important factor in the production of the Howard Park Wines.
During vintage, Chief Winemaker Michael Kerrigan drives over 26,000 kilometres testing, selecting and carefully monitoring the fruit planned for the Howard Park range of wines. His trusty Holden Commodore wagon is constantly covered in dirt and mud from travelling the South West's "dirt track" roads.
Amongst grape growers Michael has earn't a reputation as "bloody tough", rejecting more fruit than he accepts.
As a result, the Howard Park Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot and regional range or reds are only ever produced in very small quantities, but are noted for their rare balance of elegance and power. They also have a proven history of ageing with increased complexity and interest ensuring these wines are always in demand.
"At Howard Park we have a philosophy and dedication to producing wines of distinct character; subtle multi layered without dominant characters but with balanced whole flavours and textures, complex and rich with extended ageing potential."
