Ourcellar comment: Cracked this open recently and found it to be such a great and extremely drinkable everyday red. Soft, full of flavour and seriously great value for money.
The fruit was machine harvested at flavour ripeness and then gently crushed to ferment. Fermentation on skins in static fermenters lasted between 7-9 days. Following fermentation, the wine was gently pressed off skins and then matured on French oak for several months before being blended and bottled.
The colour is a brilliant dark red with vibrant purple hues. Intensely aromatic, the Houghton Shiraz displays bright and enticing berry fruit flavours of blueberry, raspberry and cherries. Light floral hints are combined with fresh spices – vanilla, nutmeg and white pepper.
The aromas carry through to the palate, which is bright and supple with black forest flavours; cherry and chocolate combined with raspberries. Light oak chariness and spice with silky fine grained tannins providing good length and structure.
