Howard Park Riesling Scoops Gold @ Rutherglen

Media Release

Howard Park's flagship Riesling, first produced in 1986 has scooped a Gold Medal at the renowned Rutherglen Wine Show with this year's release.

The Gold Medal adds to the growing list of accolades for the 2010 Howard Park Riesling that already includes two coveted trophies from the Perth Royal Wine Show for the Best 2010 Vintage Dry White Table Wine and the Best West Australia White Table Wine.

Owner and Marketing Director Amy Burch on the win:
"The 2010 Howard Park Riesling is made from grapes grown on our site - Mt Barrow, which is managed in an environmentally friendly manner. We are delighted that this site is only 5 years old and yet delivering so early in the life of this special vineyard. We look forward to our future with excellent Rieslings.

"The Rutherglen Gold Medal and Perth Royal Wine Show trophies are a great honour and add resonance to Howard Park's philosophy of always providing excellent fruit for premium wines. Congratulations to our viticultural team."

"The Rutherglen Wine Show has been running for over 120 years and is recognised by wine producers and wine consumers as one of the major wine shows in Australia. The West Australian wine industry involvement reflects its growth, mirrors and provides wine enthusiasts with insights into the best available on the market."

This year's Rutherglen Wine Show had well over 2,000 entries.
