Howard Park Riesling Margaret River 2009
Ex-Yalumba, Plantagenet and Millbrook star Tony Davis has considerable experience in WA, and especially the Great Southern, so is an ideal choice to build on HP's success in recent years. The wines have a purity of flavour and elegant structure that is difficult to achieve in Australia's warm climate and the style is wonderfully summed up by "If you buy one wine this week, make it this one, a thrilling, steely, lime zest-spiked Riesling whose minerally, mouthwatering fruit is as close as Western Australia's top Great Southern district is going to get to the German original. Hang onto this for 5 years and you will be rewarded with layer upon layer of classic, rich petrol-and-lime juice Riesling finesse." The Times (Weekend)
The latest release from the cracking Howard Park stable. Oily lime skins explodes from the glass, mirrored on the palate too. Add a heafty dose of citrus acidity and a crisp, spritzy finish and mingle in some delicate, tropical fruit notes and a sherbet finish and you have a delicious whole. http://www.spittoon.biz/two_australian_rieslings.html
A smooth drinking white. Mild finish.
