To perform a Jeté leap, dancers must master poise, dedication and elegance. To produce a bottle of Jeté méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine, our winemakers must do the same.
The Jeté Collection
There are four méthode traditionnelle sparkling wines in the range: Jeté Premier Brut NV, Jeté Rosé NV, Petit Jeté NV and Grand Jeté.
Our Mount Barrow vineyard in the cool climate Great Southern, as well as our newly acquired Forest View vineyard in Pemberton are perfectly suited to growing fine Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier which are high in natural acidity.
In 2017 Howard Park’s Jeté Brut Blanc NV was awarded Best Australian Sparkling at the highly-respected Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships in London.
Howard Park x West Australian Ballet
As a signature ballet movement, the Jeté, creates the illusion of boundless control. Our Jeté is crafted with the same principles.
Howard Park is a proud primary sponsor of West Australian Ballet and has a long-running family history with professional ballet in Australia. It is the only winery in Australia – and, most likely, the world – to boast a former Principal Dancer and Soloist on its staff (David Burch & Lesley Scogna, both siblings of owner Jeff Burch).
We worked closely with the West Australian Ballet on Jeté campaign to capture to essence of balance of strength, form and poise required to execute the perfect Jeté . The filming would not have been made possible without the valuable contributions from the talented Principal Rehersal Director and Artistic Associate Sandy Delasalle, Principal Dancer Matthew Lehmann, and Soloist Julio Blanes.
As pioneers in the Great Southern, we always believed that the Mount Barker subregion, which shares similarities with the climate of Champagne, would grow world-class cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Several clones of these varieties were brought in from France and other locations in Australia to be planted at the Mount Barrow vineyard and these vines form the base wine of the Howard Park Jeté range.
Our Chief Winemaker, Nic Bowen, is passionnate about sparkling – ever striving to experiment with yeasting rates, ageing and oak use and building more layers of complexity into the Jeté collection.
