This wine is a brilliant deep dark red in colour, with a bright scarlet hue . The bouquet displays ripe, dark fruit characters of mulberry, blackberry and poached plum coupled with black olive and spice . Underlying chocolate box and cedar notes are derived from French oak maturation. The generous, fruit forward palate is rich with dark fruits, hints of mocha and cassis, and a firm, fine tannin structure with balanced acidity providing lovely texture and length.
Houghton has proudly been established over 175 years . It is Houghton's exacting attention to flavour profile and overall balance in their wines that sets Houghton apart . The Crofters range celebrates the vision of their founder C.W Ferguson, who made the Houghton ‘Croft’ homestead, the home of Houghton Wines . This range displays finely crafted, contemporary styles, typical of Western Australia’s premium wine regions.
For this hallmark regional Cabernet Sauvignon, grapes were sourced from premium vineyards in the Frankland River region. The fermentation was carried out using indigenous yeasts and lasted for a period of eight to ten days. The wine was then gently pressed off skins and completed malolactic fermentation on French oak in tank and barrels. Following 16 months maturation, the wine was lightly fined and filtered to bottle.
