The stripe range from Houghton has been a reliable favourite with Aussies for years. Many a gen X and Y probably popped their wine cherry with Houghton, and it still continues to be a 'go to' wine at a value price. Vibrant in colour, aromas of red berried, cherry and plummy fruits lift from the glass, along with a hint of minty freshness and red pepper. The palate is supple, soft and juicy with a raspberry centre, fine tannins, and a lick of spice on the finish. It's a value plus wine that is made for sharing.
Cracka Rating
Brilliant and bright garnet in colour with a ruby red hue, the wine displays intense aromas of raspberry, cherry and plum fruit complemented by black olive and hints of tomato leaf, mint and red capsicum. The juicy palate is full of vibrant raspberry, blueberry and cherry fruits combined with chocolate, cinnamon and clove spice. The tannin structure is soft and supple providing an excellent example of Western Australian cabernet.

Houghton Awards and Accolades

Top Gold Medal and 96/100, 2012 Royal Melbourne Wine Show
Varietal credentials are on full parade in this value-for-money lunchtime cabernet. Flavours of crunchy blackcurrants and violet perfume carry long through a refreshingly medium-bodied palate of tangy acidity and fine-boned tannins.

Best Drinking:
2013-2016
Wine Taste Special Edition 100 - Hall of Honour
Great value, on a par with that of Houghton Margaret River Cabernet of the same vintage, the latter a better wine, but naturally more expensive; here fragrant and breezy cassis is woven through with fine tannins on the light- to medium-bodied palate, and a touch of oak also appears. Great early drinking 'luncheon claret'.
