Howard Park ‘Leston’ Margaret River Shiraz 2005

Syrah from Australia - Western Australia
Review Date : 20-Apr-2015
Very dark, black-red colour with lighter garnet on rim. This has an elegant, intense bouquet with secondary development, the dark red and black fruit unfolding layers of savoury earth, meat and game. A more elegant wine, still ripe with black and red berry fruits, the sweetness mingling with savoury characters. The palate features fine-grained texture and extraction, and the acid discreet. The palate flows smoothly to n elegant finish. Becoming mature, but will drink over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Leston’ vineyard, Margaret River, fermentation finished in new oak, the wine aged 18 months in 60% new barriques. 18.0-/20 Apr 2015 RRP $N/A
