Reviews of the 2014 Howard Park Flint Rock Shiraz included below;

"95 Points. Frankland River and Mount Barker, open-fermented in small vats, matured for 15 months in new and used French oak. A serious, powerful full-bodied wine that might be confused with cabernet in a blind tasting thanks to savoury tannins that provide a platform for the blackberry, black cherry and plum fruits, with a dusting of spice and pepper; oak also contributes. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. To 2034"- James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2018.

"Flint Rock Shiraz is from the Great Southern arm of Howard Park. It’s hard to argue with this. It offers warm, berried flavour with an overlay of black pepper and assorted cloves and dry spice; it’s not super smooth but it’s supple and soft-enough. It smells ripe and inviting; it doesn’t put a foot wrong through the palate. You can’t really go wrong. A quick double-decant does it wonders too. Rated: 91 Points Tasted: Dec16 Alcohol: 14.5% Price: $28 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2017 - 2024" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

Howard Park Wines has a very simple mantra when it comes to the production of its wines - premium wine can only come from excellent fruit. Since its foundation Howard Park has held the belief that each variety is best suited to particular climates and soil types within the two premium wine regions of Margaret River and the Great Southern.

Over the past 25 years, Howard Park has exerted considerable effort into defining and classifying the vineyards in these two regions by variety to ensure the quality levels demanded are continually upheld and improved. They believe this approach ensures that each bottle of Howard Park wine is the finest expression from these two regions and continues to over deliver on expectations.
