Howard Park ‘Leston’ Margaret River Shiraz 2012

Syrah from Australia - Western Australia
Review Date : 20-Apr-2015
Very dark purple-red colour, a little lighter on edge. The nose is intense with plenty of aromatic lift, with ripe, spicy black berry and plum fruits, liquorice and peeper and violet floral notes. Sweetly ripe on palate, luscious dark red plum and black berried fruits are the feature, the wine revealing layers of liquirice, pepper and florals. The fruit is supported by grainy tannin extraction, balancing the sweetness, and the mouthfeel is fulsome and structured. Good acidity provides tension and vitality and the wine promises well over the next 7-9+ years. Fruit from the ‘Leston’ vineyard, Margaret River, fermented to 14.0% alc., a portion finished in new oak, the wine aged 18 months in 30% new barriques, 95% French and 5% American. 18.5+/20 Apr 2015 RRP $45.00
