Overview

Chardonnay

Its Origins

Jeff Burch established Howard Park in 1986, making Cabernet and Riesling. They own around 200 ha of their own vineyards and work with 40-45 contract growers sourcing mainly Margaret River and Great Southern fruit. “We don’t believe that every region does every variety very well” Jeff told me. “We look for specific varieties from specific regions throughout Western Australia.” In spite of the sheer volume of wine that is managed at the Margaret River and smaller Denmark facility in Great Southern, the standards are high."

What The Critics Say

93/100 Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday

"Cool, wild yeast fermentation in tank and used French oak, followed by 9 months on lees, has thrown the focus on intense, linear fruit with pink grapefruit and a hint of background texture providing an each way bet bound to come up." Drink by 2024

92/100 Huon hooke

"Light yellow colour, a whiff of free sulfur, some fresh, green herbs and a note of honeysuckle. Fairly fruit-driven. The palate is lively, fresh, crisp and intense, with appealing lightness and delicacy. A very refreshing wine; delicate and yet quite long, and complex enough to sustain interest. 27 SEP 2015." Drink 2015 - 2020
