Crofters were Scottish tenant farmers who shared the proceeds of harvest with their landlord. Still functional at the Houghton wineworks, is a restored historical homestead of Crofter design. Today, the Houghton team remains at the forefront of viticultural expansion and innovation throughout the premiere winegrowing precincts of Western Australia. It's a well kept secret that Frankland River yields a quality of Cabernet Sauvignon that's world class and second to none. Crofter sings in complete harmony with it's resonant fruit and long delving finish.
Houghton own and operate significant vineyard holdings in most of WA's premier appellations, the winemakers retain access to an exhaustive catalog from which to source the pick of Cabernet Sauvignon. Close management of vines and a holistic approach to viticulture make a major contribution to the ultimate quality of wine. Parcels are assembled from choice Frankland River sites, treated to vinification through the action of wild yeasts in traditional open top fermenters and gently pressed off skins at dryness into a selection of French oak barrels, for completion of malolactic and an extravagant sixteen months maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Dark red, scarlet hues. Lifted aromatics of black olive and cassis, dark currants and blueberry are supported by the cedar and spice of French oak. Fruit forward palate of raspberry and cassis, loganberry and black bramble fruit flavours, supported by fine tannins and firm acidity, a wine of superb texture and splendid length.

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»
