Houghton honours Jack Mann’s contribution with this single-vineyard wine from WA’s prized Frankland River region. Cool winters, warm summer days and cool summer nights, along with some of the world’s oldest soils, contribute to a wine of outstanding intensity, structure and balance. With cellaring potential of more than 10 years, this is a wine of elegance, fruit flavour and power, balanced by soft, fine tannins.

This is the flagship label in Houghton’s fine wine collection. It was first crafted in 1994 and already holds the distinction of being ‘Langton’s Classified’, recognising it as a select Australian wine that continues to appreciate in value at fine wine auctions.

Expert Reviews

Cabernet Sauvignon 96%, Malbec 3%, Shiraz 1%. Shiraz did you say? Outrageous! Sent as a cleanskin, as it’s not labelled yet.

Blackcurrant, blackberry, aniseed, gum leaf, dark chocolate, tobacco, pencils. Very firm in the mouth with abundant black fruit, clear acidity and an imposing tannin structure. Commanding wine. Very long. Not red hot on the eucalypt notes, but it comes with the territory, and gee it’s bloody good regardless. I’d say it will cellar as long as you want to keep it. Feel the power. Respect My Authoritah! Rating 95+, Drink 2017 - 2035+ Gary Walsh, Wine Front (AUG/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


The wine is dense in colour, being deep purple-red with a bright scarlet hue.


The bouquet has intense aromatics of blackberry, cassis and dark berry fruits, black olive and hints of mint with dark chocolate and fine cedary French oak.


The palate is full-flavoured, rich, intense and complex. Concentrated, classic varietal fruit flavours are evident and supported by integrated fine French oak. The plush sweet fruit flavours are long on the palate and supported by the firm, fine tannin structure. A beautiful wine in every respect.

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.
