The Wisdom range draws on the deep knowledge and wise words of one of the nation's founding winemakers, the late great Jack Mann, who asserted that you can exist without wine but you cannot live! Wisdom is vinified from some of the finest parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon to be found in Margaret River. A sensational construct of west coast Cabernet, by one of the new world's most monumental winemakers. Enjoy alongside barbecued beef, venison steaks or a red wine and tarragon braise of succulent osso bucco.
Houghton has long been one of the leading protagonists within the hemisphere of cutting edge West Australian viticulture. Under the guidance and custodianship of many exceptional winemakers, Houghton has flourished and now enjoys an impressive retinue of vineyards across the length and breadth of Margaret River. Houghton retains access to some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon anywhere in the country. The select grapes are harvested at ideal ripeness and vinified in open and small static fermenters with careful plunging of the cap to achieve excellent colour and tannin extraction. Wisdom was then pressed directly to Bordeaux coopered French oak barriques for seventeen months maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Brilliant, deep red with garnet hues. The bouquet is intensely aromatic. Lightly herbaceous with tomato leaf, mint and cigarbox complemented by clove, spice and charry notes derived from French oak. The flavoursome palate is rich with plum and cherry fruit characters, complemented by dark chocolate and mocha notes. Firm acidity and fine powdery tannins provide length and structure.

About the Houghton Winery
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»
