2019 Houghton Premium Release Cabernet Sauvignon
Drawing upon grapes from the best wine growing regions of Western Australia, our Houghton Premium Release range combines true varietal expression with contemporary winemaking techniques, resulting in a quality selection of wines to be discovered and enjoyed.
Carefully crafted to showcase the purity of Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine demonstrates refinement, style and fruit power to be enjoyed at the time of release or in years to come.
The 2019 vintage in Frankland River was characterised by persistent cool and dry conditions leading into a later than average commencement to harvest. The Wilsons Pool Vineyard produced a low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon crop with intensity of flavour and fine, firm tannins.
Luminous dark red with a scarlet hue.
Lifted and intense varietal aromatics of cassis, dark chocolate, olive tapenade, tobacco leaf and thyme. The French oak maturation contributes to the cherry notes and vanillin lift with a generous fruit rich palate.
Hints of mocha and blackberry fruits are carried by a firm, fine tannin structure and balanced acidity accompanied by brilliant texture and persistence.
