The palate is fresh and lively and follows on from the aromatics with pear and passionfruit flavours with rose petal and tangelo pith notes. The wine is long and juicy with a cleansing acidity giving it a fantastic balance and intensity.

Break free from tradition with this vibrant range of new varietal blends from Houghton Wines in West Australia. The Bandit was Moondyne Joe, a 19th century Western Australian outlaw famed for his multiple escapes from custody and for public mockery of the strict English Governor at the time. Just by chance he was captured in Houghton’s cellar during a late night police party in 1869. (He was later given his freedom).
