"From a cooler, southern subregion of Margaret River (Miamup), this vintage of Howard Park's Chard is punchy and pretty, offering heady aromas of kumquats and nectarines, with saline, mineral notes and gentle but ever-present toasty, vanillin oak notes. The easygoing palate is slippery and saline, with lovely fruit intensity and crystalline acidity. Again the oak shows but doesn't overwhelm. This has hit its stride now, and offers an affordable intro to the famed Chardonnays of Australia's west."

Vivid straw. High-pitched, mineral-accented orange and pear nectar aromas, along with floral, vanilla and buttered toast nuances. Chewy and expansive on the palate, offering sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors that pick up quinine and ginger notes with air. Shows repeating smokiness on the finish, which lingers with very good, floral-driven persistence. Drinking window: 2021 - 2027
