2017 Howard Park Miamup Chardonnay
Redolent in heaven-sent aromas of fresh and fabulous citrus, melon, peach and pear fruit notes that define Margaret River Chardonnay. These primary aromas are subtly highlighted with nutmeal, minerals , caramel and vanilla pod spice, to add complexity and anticipation. The palate exudes fleshy primary fruit, laced with nutmeal, lemon butter and brioche. A fine, chalk like texture, bright acidity and subtle use of oak gives length, dimension and structure to the wine.

ABOUT THE WINERY
Howard Park has been a pioneering West Australian winery since 1986, as one of the earliest adopters of multi-regional fruit sourcing; a champion of the cool-climate Great Southern wine region and the world-renowned Margaret River. The result is the work of heritage and family -more than three decades handcrafting wines of provenance and elegance.
The Howard Park story was borne out of the ambition to craft wine with generational cellaring potential. The first two wines were produced by its founder, John Wade, who left his prestigious posting in the Coonawarra after seeing enormous potential in the budding Great Southern wine region. Here, he crafted a riesling and cabernet sauvignon to stand the test of time. His friend and fellow wine lover Jeff Burch joined in partnership seven years later, purchasing cornerstone land parcels, constructing a winery and cellar door and entwining his family with Howard Park’s future.
