Born at Guildford, very near the Houghton Swan Valley winery, Dr John Gladstones was an internationally acclaimed scientist who identified the Margaret River in 1965 as being world class for planting vines and growing grapes. Dr Gladstones also played a role in the development of the Frankland River region, Pemberton and Manjimup. A prolific gold medal winner which honours his contribution to West Australian viticulture, this glorious wine offers a profound structure and generous palate, epitomising the peerlesss quality of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon at its finest.
Dr Gladstones was a long time friend of the late Jack Mann, pioneer of the West Australian wine industry and mentor of Houghton wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the Batley vineyard in the Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River. The red granite gravel loam soils, maritime climate and twenty year old vines contribute to producing wines with richness, structure and intensity. Fruit is hand picked, crushed and vinified in small 2T and 5T open fermenters, hand plunged then pressed to tank, settled and racked directly to a selection of new and one year old Bordeaux coopered French oak barriques. Gladstones is minimally handled throughout its life in oak, until assemblage, sixteen months after vintage.
TASTING NOTES
Intense deep purple red with vibrant scarlet hues. High intensity and attractive aromatics of berry fruits, cassis and cigar box. Underlying aromas of star anise and charry oak spice provide wonderful complexity. The dense and structural palate is balanced by fine, firm tannins. Will impress as a youth and evolve over many years.

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»
