Top 10 Chardonnays over £20

8. Howard Park Chardonnay 2012

Howard ParkBased on the last entry, it should come as little surprise to find this solo effort from Howard Park also impressed the judges.

In common with its Marchand & Burch counterpart, this Chardonnay also features Porongurup fruit, but this time as part of a blend with grapes from fellow Great Southern sub-regions Mount Barker and Denmark.

2012 was a year that sparked excitable noises from winemakers across Australia and the western end of this vast continent proved no exception. With consistently warm, dry conditions during the growing season, Howard Park’s cool 380m altitude, south facing Mount Barrow vineyard provided the majority of fruit for this vintage.
