Howard Park Scotsdale Shiraz 2011

Howard Park’s regional shiraz release out of the Great Southern. Matured mostly in French oak though with a spot of American oak (5%) for good measure.

It’s a clean, fruit-driven, well-balanced release. It’s a simple pleasure as a young wine though time in bottle should bring with it complexity. It tastes of plums, toast, mint and brighter, floral, red-berried notes. Succulence is on its side. It should develop well; fine-grained tannin and overall balance are the keys here.
