Howard Park Miamup Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Howard Park’s winemaking philosophy is to craft elegant, age-worthy wines from our best 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. Muriel Allingham was a much beloved mother & grandmother to the Burch family, remembered for her quiet strength, warmth, elegance & youthful outlook.

Allingham Chardonnay is a reflection and a reminder of Muriel. This wine is made from the best blocks of Chardonnay that grow on the south facing slopes of our Allingham vineyard, in the Karridale sub-region of Margaret River. Drawing inspiration from traditional winemaking methods, the Allingham Chardonnay matures in fin grained French oak resulting in a flavoursome and complex wine, evocative of this cool southern site.

TASTING NOTES

Refined and delicately ethereal, the floral notes of honeysuckle, citrus blossom and boronia mesh with vanilla pod spice and cardamom. The palate is a supple and pliable, full of stone fruits, citrus, pear drop essence, nutmeal, nougat and lemon curd. The acidity is limey in the sense of both chalk and citrus which gives the palate tautness, definition and a fine balance. Never a wine of extremes, the Allingham Chardonnay is nuanced and full of subtleties and harmony.

Tasting notes

This wine is a wave of flavour and aroma that starts with a blast of fruit and spice, as preserved citrus, blackcurrant, custard apple, nectarine, sweet herbs, lemon verbena and vanilla pod detail the signature bouquet. The palate is a fusion of these many fruits, spices and herbs which are further shaped and refined by lemon curd creaminess and a dry mineral-flintiness, adding texture and dimension. A lively, soft lime zest embellishes the fine, chalk-like acidity to finish.
