2022 Howard Park Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc

6 x 750ml
This is a Wow! kind of wine if ever there was one. Even if you consider yourself a non-Sauvignon believer, I suspect you will be taken aback by its purity of expression. Mixes intensity of Sauvignon herbals with floral aromatics in equal parts. Green apple, passionfruit pulp, citrus, green bean, jasmine and lantana. Beautifully formed, elegantly delivered . . . and believe me, I don’t write that everyday about Sauvignon Blanc. Read more

Don’t think your standard fruity savvy when you get this wine. It gets some serious treatment with barrel fermentation, skin contact and some tank fermentation to keep it bright and lively. Has a creamy guava-like aroma which extends into the palate. It’s multi-layered and has a slightly flinty minerality which gives a boost to the finish.

unchy varietal flavours of sugar snap peas, feijoa and passionfruit, some stone fruit, too, and all of it well balanced. Refreshing and lively across the palate with acidity leading the charge.

Tasting Notes

Boisterous notes of passionfruit, guava, and lychee intermingle with candied citrus peel, thyme flowers, chamomile, and shaved coconut creating an exotic and appetising bouquet. The tropical aromas on the nose evolve into fine sweet citrus flavours on the palate. Mouth-watering acidity is accompanied by rich notes of lime cordial, preserved lemon, and under-ripe peach leading to a crisp and refreshing finish. Restrained use of oak adds texture as well as subtle notes of roasted almond. A wine of fruit purity and persistence, it is designed for easy enjoyment, yet can also be paired with a wide array of dishes.
