Average rating out of 5 stars Write a review
$18.99 per Bottle
$227.88 per case

Winemaking: Estate grown in our Mt Barker vineyard. These grapes were picked at night and chilled for 2 days prior to primary fermentation. 9 more days on skins to provide soft tannins. The grapes are then basket pressed and transferred into 25% new French oak and 75% 2nd, 3rd and 4th year French puncheons, giving a soft oak profile. Final blending with a touch of Cabernet Franc gives a varietal lift and lightness to the

wine.

Story: Located on the South Eastern tip fo the Adelaide Hills at an altitude of 410m this vineyard experiences a warmer and dryer summer than average for the Adelaide Hills, perfect for powerful yet delicate reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon.

Expert Reviews

Silver & 91 Pts - Halliday Rating.

This address boasts a deft hand with cabernet No exception here. Mount Barker fruit. A short extraction, as is the wont. A dollop of franc at blending for lift. Short oak treatment across French puncheons of different ages, 25% new. This mid-weighted, savoury and eminently approachable leafy cabernet boasts incredible value at the price. Red currant, sassafras, mulch and strewn mint and sage. A delicious wine, eminently approachable. -

Winery Tasting Notes

Deep ink in colour, you are greeted with a powerful nose of blackberry, plum, black olives, mocha and earth characters. This follows through on a lengthy palate perfectly balanced with seasoned oak and subtle tannins.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1890, Amos William Howard discovered subterranean clover thriving naturally in a picturesque valley in the Adelaide Hills. Howard Vineyard’s stone barn Cellar Door and premium red vineyard are located in Nairne, on the site of this original farm. Subterranean clover continues to grow at this site, restoring Nitrogen and ensuring the health and quality of the soil in this spectacular vineyard. 30km away, our high altitude (470m), cool climate white vineyard at Schoenthal (“Beautiful Valley” in German) is one of the Adelaide Hill’s finest sites for growing fresh, crisp Sparkling and white wines. We believe these two unique vineyard sites enable us to grow exceptional white and red grapes without compromise, and our Estate grown Picnic, Clover and Amos wines are renowned for their delicate notes and distinctive fruit purity.

Tom Northcott grew up working in our vineyards and cellar door. His passion for wine grew, leading Tom to study a Bachelor Degree in Viticulture and Oenology, refining his craft with vintages in the South of France, Barossa Valley, Western Australia and Tasmania, before returning to Howard Vineyard in 2013 as Executive Winemaker. Tom oversees all vineyard and winemaking operations and his philosophy is simple; to make textural, cool climate wines that are light and elegant with a finesse that reflects the terroir of our vineyards.
