Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon balances power and elegance in an ideal harmony, with a remarkable intensity of perfume ranging from cocoa dusted blackberries, violets and hedgerow herbs, cassis and coffee, and sweet earth. The palate reveals ample and succulent fruit tannins that promote an array of rich and persistent forest fruit and dark plum flavours, overlaid with regional bay leaf and black olive characters, while French oak delivers accents of savoury spice and mocha. An immensely satisfying and moreish young Cabernet with the depth to reveal further complexity with 5 or more years in the cellar. Another concrete example of the outstanding 2018 vintage in Margaret River.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling

Very beautiful cabernet with blackcurrants, currants and mint. Very intense spicy aromas. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and a fresh, driven finish. Very linear tannins that run the length of the wine and give it drive at the end. Some tile character at the end. Needs time to soften.

JH 92
Australian Wine Companion
A blend of Houghton clone and 126, fruit from Wilyabrup. All vineyard blocks vinified separately, matured 18 months in French oak. Chocolate, red licorice and pink peppercorn on the nose. Fruit is restrained and red, tannins are fine but elicit a drying effect on the palate. All things come around, drawing out into a long finish. The full impact occurs at the end, once all the components have come together.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Heady fruit aromas of black cherry and red currant take the lead supported by dark chocolate, eucalyptus and ocean brine notes. Margaret River's distinctive tannins—granular yet fine and chiseled—work in harmony with lifted acidity. The characters of the nose linger on the palate as well. Drink now

Howard Park Winery Video

It may sound improbable, but it was a passion for the sea and for riding the wild surf of Western Australia’s remote Margaret River region that led Jeff Burch to discover his affinity for wine. Now serving as the proud owner of Howard Park wines, Jeff and his family aim to craft boutique wines with an uncompromising commitment to quality.

Howard Park is one of Western Australia’s pioneering family-owned wineries, specializing in the state’s premier grape-growing regions of Margaret River and the Great Southern. Encompassing a 30+ year history and overseen by two generations of the Burch family, Howard Park is a multi-regional endeavor which has included the selection, acquisition and development of four exceptional estate vineyards across both regions as well as a winery and Cellar Door in Margaret River.

The winery is led by legendary winemaker, and winner of the 2018 Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine ‘Winemaker of the Year’, Janice McDonald. Howard Park is also a proud member of Australia’s First Families of Wine (AFFW), a collective of twelve multi-generational family-owned wine producers. Together representing seventeen wine-growing regions across Australia and forty-eight generations of winemakers. The Howard Park insignia celebrates the creation of the vine and its forbidden fruits as in the biblical reference of Garden of Eden. With the union of its “Tree of Life” symbol and intertwined winged dragon, signifying the essential creative balance between the experience of temptation and ultimate enlightenment.

 Howard Park 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 Western Australia, Margaret River and the Great Southern. Howard Park’s Margaret River vineyards (Allingham & Leston) and the winery carry certification from the Winemakers Federation of Australia’s EntWine initiative for environmentally conscious practices. Sustainability is at the very heart of their vineyard management and while not certified, they have carefully chosen organic and biodynamic principles from Australia and overseas, to best cater for each individual vineyard block and their nuances. Chemicals and pesticides are avoided in the Howard Park vineyards, the winemaking facilities are 100% water sufficient, using rainwater collected from the roof for both winery and irrigation needs. Vineyard pests are kept under control by roving guinea fowl and flocks of sheep serve as environmentally friendly weed management.

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux Blends with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. For white wines, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are regional specialties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
