Howard Park ‘Leston’ Margaret River Shiraz 2004

Syrah from Australia - Western Australia
Review Date : 20-Apr-2015
Very full, deep, dark ruby-red colour, still youthful in appearance. The bouquet is full and deep with lush and ripe red and black fruit aromas harmoniously melded with aromatic and lifted pepper notes, along with earth and game elements, the fruit showing some development. On palate fulsome and solidly constructed with good weight, density and concentration. Soft, sweet, ripe black fruits form a strong core, promising to reveal more interest and complexity. This has plenty of structure encasing the wine. This will continue to develop another 5-6+ years easily, and suggests ‘fireworks’ to come! Fruit from the ‘Leston’ vineyard, Margaret River, fermentation finished in new oak, the wine aged 18 months in 60% new barriques. 19.0-/20 Apr 2015 RRP $N/A
