Howard Park ASW Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

Howard Park’s winemaking philosophy is to craft elegant, age-worthy wines from our best vineyard sites in the Margaret River and Great Southern wine regions of Western Australia.

Critical site selection, meticulous viticulture and detailed winemaking underline each Icon wine. In name, the Icon wines pay homage to significant members of the Burch family.

The A.S.W. is the first wine to acknowledge Amy Burch’s side of the family. Co-owner, Amy has been deeply involved in Howard Park from the very early days.

Coincidentally, Amy’s parents share the initials, A.S.W. Her father, Alex Stephen Wee, was a successful Singaporean business person; a self-made man who arrived in Singapore from East Malaysia, in 1946 with 1 Singapore dollar. Amy’s mother Annie Sheila Wee, had a cultural affinity with red wine due to her upbringing by French & Irish nuns as a boarder in Singapore. She still favours a glass of Shiraz to this day. The Wees came to Australia in the 1960s. Amy, is proud to commemorate her parents & the sum of all her family’s efforts, in this special wine.

An aromatic fusion richly embedded with signature notes of both the grapes and oaks employed to craft this wine. Briary hedgerow fruits mix with rich plum and dark cherry, savoury herbs mingle with exotic anise and pepper spice. Oak wise, notes of vanilla and coconut are enriched with mocha and dark chocolate.

The palate draws this wonderful assortment of characters into a tapestry of flavours, layers and textures. Flavoured and layered with powerful berry and plum fruit, hints of savoury herb, exotic spice and sweet oak. Ripe, silky fruit tannin and dense fine grained oak provide a textual balance and length to contour the opulence this most generous wine.
