SKU: HOUGTHOSHZ16
This Shiraz honours Thomas Newte Yule, who in 1836 was part of a syndicate of three British army officers who together purchased the northern half of a large land-holding in the Swan Valley. The property was named Houghton after the most senior of the trio – Lieutenant Colonel Richmond Houghton. During Thomas Yule’s management, the first vines were established. This Shiraz is sourced from the Frankland River wine- growing region - renowned for producing some of the best examples of Shiraz in Western Australia

”93/7% shiraz/malbec, from a single vineyard. Undeniably powerful, dark and dense, this lacks some of the freshness and vibrancy expected of the region. The length of flavour almost justifies the new increased price. Perhaps the world has moved on in the time this has been in bottle, but the wine is traditionally constructed and sturdy.”
– Erin Larkin
