Houghton was established in 1836, just four years after the fledgling colony of Western Australia was founded. It is one of Australia’s oldest operating wineries. Houghton has been proudly producing Western Australian Wines for over 175 years. Sourced from a variety of Western Australia vineyards, the Houghton Stripe range epitomises the flavoursome, vibrant style of Houghton.

The 2010 vintage cabernet sauvignon is a juicy and powerfully fruit-driven cabernet sauvignon. It possesses typical blackberry and juicy ripe plum characters on the nose with hints of cigar box and vanilla oak. The palate is softly textured and the tannin structure is also soft and supple providing an excellent example of Western Australian cabernet. This is an easy drinking cabernet sauvignon with just a touch of backbone.

89/100
