Have Houghton got Wisdom? You bet, so sayeth Jack Mann, one of Australia's most significant, pioneering winemakers, that when wine reaches the state of sublime, there's no other on earth which can match it! Wisdom is just such a wine, fashioned exclusively from the finest parcels of Pemberton Chardonnay, hand picked from a single site, the very best of Houghton vineyards. A flagship wine of immense stature to accompany the perfect cheese souffle or freshly cooked crayfish, caressed by newburg and amontillado sauce.
One of the most mouthfilling Chardonnays to eventuate out of Pemberton, Wisdom has been recipient of the white wine equivelent to the Jimmy Watson trophy, an outstanding achievement. Chardonnay is hand picked into 10Kg picking buckets at varying levels of maturity, taken to the winery and chilled as whole bunches. Fruit is whole bunch pressed in small batches to capture and retain the maximum level of flavours. Houghton has been making wines in the same cellar since the 1850s and has built up it's own population of ambient yeasts. Juices are transferred to a selection of exclusively Burgundy coopered French oak barriques for indigenous yeast ferments and nine months ageing on lees. Alcohol 13.5%
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw hue. Lovely complex aromas of peach and lemon citrus with nuances of lemon curd, walnut and oak spice. The palate is vibrant and full flavoured with abundant fruit characters. Finely textured with creamy complexity, derived from extended lees contact, a fine acid finish, bound in rich, creamy textures for a wine great length and exquisite balance.

More About Houghton Wines
Established in 1836, Houghton has the enviable position as Western Australia's most awarded winemaker
Houghton Wines, based in the heart of the Swan Valley, contains a wealth of romantic history. Named after Lieutenant Colonel Richmond Houghton in 1836, the first commercial vintage was produced in 1859 totalling 25 gallons, the foundation for one of Australia's oldest continuous winemakers. The picturesque Houghton winery property today has fifty hectares planted with premium grape varieties including Verdelho, Chardonnay, Semillon and Chenin Blanc. Early documentation and current research suggests the first vines were planted between 1830 and 1836. Houghton»
