Howard Park 2013 Great Southern Riesling
A recent visit to the Howard Park cellar door in Margaret River underlined what an impressive array of styles is produced by the Burch family under their many different labels; Howard Park, MadFish, Jete and Marchand and Burch among them. There is an attention to detail throughout, and while the range has grown exponentially over the past few years, this remains one of the standouts; a wine that sits comfortably among Australia's top rieslings. Crisp, clean, delicate, zesty, linear, refreshing.....the adjectives just go on and on. A dry wine of length and balance that offers immense enjoyment and is wonderfully food friendly. Cellar-worthy, too. $33. www.burchfamilywines.com.au.
