West Cape Howe scores three wines in James Halliday's TOP 100!
James Halliday has selected three West Cape Howe wines in his TOP 100 list:
96 Points - 2014 West Cape Howe Riesling - Mount Barker
'Everything about the wine screams quality and showcases the ability of Great Southern to produce superb riesling when made with the skill evident here; intense citrus blossom aromas and flavours, the acidity a strand of stainless steel wire running through it and providing the structure for the endless finish. Drink to 2029.'
94 Points - 2013 West Cape Howe Cabernet Merlot - Great Southern
'A fragrant bouquet of blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit leads onto a supple, medium-bodied palate, awash with delicious cassis tempered by cedary French oak, together with fine-grained tannins. Some seriously good fruit has been used to make this wine. Drink to 2025.'
96 Points - 2012 West Cape Howe 'Book Ends' Cabernet Sauvignon - Mount Barker
Gavin Berry, Winemaker and Managing Director said, 'We are thrilled to have these wines included in James Halliday's TOP 100. The Great Southern is often underrated as a wine region and to have this endorsement from James Halliday is fantastic. The fact that different wines achieved such good ratings reinforces the depth of our region; that we can produce world class, delicate rieslings through to richly flavoured cabernet with distinctive regional characteristics, and offer them at great value for money. I can't see myself being anywhere else!'
