Background Information

Houghton has been proudly producing Western Australian wines for nearly 175 years. It is our exacting attention to flavour profile and overall balance in our wines that sets Houghton apart.
The Small Batch series of wines have been developed as a means of showcasing the creativity of our viticulture and winemaking teams. Each year the teams work closely to trial new varieties, blends and techniques. The Small Batch wines represent their successes.

Vintage

The 2018 vintage in Western Australia was characterised by persistent warm and dry conditions punctuated by several rain events during harvest. A return to healthy rainfall levels in the preceding winter and a wet, cool spring resulted in healthy vines carrying a slightly higher than average crop. This meant that the ripening and picking times were three weeks later than the short term average. However, the weather conditions resulted in the harvest of fruit full of flavour and in sound condition

Winemaker’s Notes

Fermented in open top fermenters for a period of 8-12 days, the wine was then gently pressed off skins to complete malolactic fermentation. Following 12 months of oak maturation, the wine was carefully blended, fined and filtered before bottling.

Tasting Notes

A vibrant red wine that ventures away from the traditional single varietal wines to a blend that reflects the diversity of the regions it was sourced from. The wine is a medium bodied style displaying cherry and red berry fruits with a touch of spice and a savoury finish. Best enjoyed with tapas style dishes, red meats, or cheeses.
