Expert Reviews

Bright purple-crimson; a significant rise in quality from the varietal; here the cabernet varietal fruit is more intense and with the autocratic personality shared by the best examples of the variety; it also has cedary French oak, perfectly integrated on the supremely elegant and long palate that finishes with fine-grained tannins. Rating 96 - Drink by 2030 - James Halliday, Austalian Wine Companion (MAR/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes


The wine is vibrant red in colour with a cherry red hue.


Intensely aromatic, the bouquet shows aromas of cassis and berry fruits with a hint of mint and tobacco leaf, along with mocha, cinnamon and vanilla spices derived from French oak maturation.


The fullbodied palate is flavoursome and rich in sweet berry fruit flavours with plum, mint, cinnamon and mocha oak. This is a soft and fleshy wine with fine, silky tannins.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Houghton was established in 1836, just four years after the fledgling colony of Western Australia was founded. It is one of Australia’s oldest operating wineries.

The winery was founded by a syndicate of three British Army officers and named after one of its first owners - Lieutenant Colonel Richmond Houghton, who started producing wine early with its first commercial vintage – a modest 25 gallons, in 1859.

In 1880, Houghton received its first wine award, the ‘Order of Merit’ at the Great Melbourne Exhibition. This was the first of many triumphs that have paved the way for Houghton to become Western Australia’s most awarded winery.

Houghton has had just 13 winemakers in its rich history and under their custodianship has produced wines with a remarkable consistency of style.

In 1922, 16-year-old Jack Mann, under the guidance of his father, George, began his winemaking apprenticeship at Houghton. Jack was to become the driving force of Houghton for 51 consecutive vintages. He brought passion, creative genius and an influence that extended far beyond Houghton, to the whole West Australian and Australian wine industry.

Jack’s best-known creation was Houghton White Burgundy, now ‘Houghton White Classic’, first crafted with incredible foresight in 1937 and an Australian favourite to this day.Houghton is now the tenth-largest red and white bottle brand in Australia, and sources fruit from every major premium grape-growing region in WA, including Gingin, Margaret River, Frankland River and Mount Barker in the Great Southern, and the emerging Pemberton region.Houghton is marking its celebrations with 175th year labelling on wines released this year, in addition to the winery’s signature stripe.
