Howard Park Flint Rock Shiraz 2015
The 2015 vintage in the Great Southern was the latest in a succession of vintages that since 2007, have rated between good and great. During this lucky 7 year period, Western Australia’s viticultural regions have experienced dry and warm to hot weather from late spring until mid-autumn. With soil moisture very low, the cooler south facing vineyard sites did receive some reprieve off the southern ocean. Warmer than average conditions accelerated ripeness and allowed red varieties to be harvested earlier. The wines produced from the 2013 vintage are full of bright fruit flavours, good acidity and ripe tannins.
Janice McDonald is a serious person of interest, since stints at Matilda Bay and Little Creatures as head brewer and at Stella Bella as winemaker and owner. She is now head winemaker at Burch Family Wines encompassing Howard Park in Margaret River and Denmark.
