Allegory

Allegory is a range of expressive varietal wines that showcases the elegance and vibrancy typical of Western Australia. They are made by Howard Park, a family-owned winery founded in 1986, and one of the state’s best respected producers. Howard Park have a unique combined expertise in both the Margaret River and Great Southern regions, and by carefully blending selected parcels of fruit from each, they allow Allegory to capture the essence of Western Australia.

Western Australia

The largest region in Western Australia and has four sub-regions, Albany, Frankland River, Mount Barker and Porongurup. As with Margaret River the suitability of this region for premium quality wines was as a result of two research reports from Californian viticulturalist Professor Harold Olmo and the Western Australian scientist Dr John Gladstone in the 50s and 60s and the ongoing enthusiasm of Bill Jamison, the Western Australia’s state viticulturaist at the time. In 1965 there were experimental plantings at Forest Hill. Further trials took place and by 1972 the first harvest was sent to Houghtons and Sandalford for winemaking by Jack Mann and his son Dorham. What transpired was development that gained momentum in the 70’s and accelerated in the 80’s. The climate is maritime influenced Mediterranean, with significant differences reflected between the sub-regions. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir; White – Riesling, and Chardonnay.
