Howard Park is the jewel in Burch Family Wines' crown; Western Australia's largest family-owned and operated winery. With the experienced Janice McDonald now overseeing the winemaking at Howard Park, the impeccable quality of their wines in assured.
Harvest occurred early April 2016. Small parcels are hand-picked and all batches are sorted to remove matter other than grapes before fermentation. Fermentation occurred in closed stainless steel fermenters. Selected parcels remained on skins post the fermentation to further enhance the tannin profile while others were pressed at dryness to capture fruit vibrancy. Each batch is matured separately in order to build a wine history over time. Barrel maturation - 18 months in 40% new and 60% older French oak barriques. After a light egg white fining and filtration, the wine is bottled.
