Howard Park Abercrombie Cabernet Sauvignon

Howard Park’s winemaking philosophy is to craft elegant, age-worthy wines from on our best sites in Margaret River & the Great Southern regions of Western Australia. Critical site selection, meticulous viticultural & detailed winemaking underline each Icon wine.

In name, the Icon wines pay homage to significant members of the Burch family. The Abercrombie is Howard Park‘s finest Cabernet Sauvignon. Jeff Burch, the owner of Howard Park, has named this wine after his Great Grandfather and mentor, Walter Abercrombie.

Harvest occurred from late March to early April 2016.

Small parcels were hand-picked and sorted to remove matter other than grapes before fermentation. Fermentation occurred in headed-down closed stainless and small open vat steel fermenters. Selected parcels remained on skins post-fermentation to further enhance the tannin profile while others were pressed at dryness to capture fruit vibrancy. Each batch was matured separately in order to build a wine history over time.

TASTING NOTES

A youthful ruby red in colour with purple hues. The bouquet is a mix of fresh berry fruits and sweet toasted oak. Rich in classic Cabernet notes of sweet blackberry and blackcurrant, rubbed dry herbs and soft cocoa and mocha spice, the palate’s opulence is shaped by a fine tannin structure and bright acidity.

This wine is definitively Cabernet – fine, pure and perfumed, with great length of flavour, balance and poise.

Cellaring: 10 – 20 years
