Part of Howard Park’s newest Wine Club exclusive range: “Arbor Novae” and celebrating the partnership with environmental charity Carbon Positive Australia.
Arbor Novae means “new trees” in Latin and expresses Howard Park’s ongoing connection
with the trees that support the ecosystem of their own vineyards and then extend out into the majestic
Eucalypt forests of South West Western Australia. $1.50 from each bottle sold going to Carbon Positive’s tree planting and landscape restoration to support their endeavours.
Howard Park’s support of WA artists continues here with the Arbor Novae labels display original paintings by Fremantle artist Andy Quilty.
The fruit comes from the Gibraltar Rock vineyard in one of the Riesling hotspots of Australia.
Howard Park, Arbor Novae, Riesling, Porongurup, 2021
Pale and pure colour. Aromas of spring fields of flowers, freshest lemon and lime zest, polished white stones, a little crushed talc heading to musk. Tightly wrapped palate with plenty of lime pith and intense acidity. A little waxy phenolic grip leading in from stony dryness.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
