Wines - Icons

Our Icon wines are the epitome of Howard Park’s winemaking philosophy. That is, to craft elegant, age-worthy wines from Western Australia’s foremost grape-growing regions - Margaret River & the Great Southern. 

Critical site selection & meticulous viticultural care has gone into each Icon wine – the Abercrombie Cabernet Sauvignon,  Allingham Chardonnay & our newest Icon wine - A.S.W Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz.

All, in name, pay homage to significant members of the Burch family. Walter Abercrombie was Jeff Burch’s great-grandfather, while Muriel Allingham was his grandmother. A.S.W are the shared initials of Amy Burch's mother and father. 

The Abercrombie is now the name of the original Howard Park Cabernet Sauvignon, which started life in 1986. Each year it is a blend of the top fruit produced from the Leston vineyard in Margaret River, & the Abercrombie vineyard in Mount Barker, Great Southern. The wine is crafted with longevity in mind, & has a cellaring potential of 20 years.

The Allingham is also made with considerable cellaring potential for a Chardonnay, of 8 – 10 years. Its fruit is sourced from the Allingham vineyard in the Karridale sub-region of southern Margaret River.

Both wines are only produced in exceptional vintages, and in very limited quantities.
