Three British Army officers, in their capacity as agents of the East India Company, established one of Western Australia's first agricultural enterprises in 1836. Named after Captain Richmond Houghton, it was not until Thomas Yule's stewardship that vines were planted and the first vintage of Houghton wine flowed in 1859. Thomas Yule now sources fruit from the eminent Justin Vineyard in Frankland River, a dark ruby Shiraz of lifted liquorice and intense brambleberry, seasoned by piquant pepper notes and supported by showroom tannins. The very elite of Frankland River Shiraz... Artisanal wines of distinguished sites»
There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, thrice winners of the exalted Jimmy Watson Memorial..

Jones Road Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Mornington Victoria
Tucked away off the beaten track, an ancient barn at Jones Road offers fantastic vistas of the rolling Moorooduc countryside. But the converted piggery is not just about sightseeing. The neighbouring Grange and Nepean Blocks deliver small but splendid harvests of intense Chardonnay grapes with superb flavour development and bright natural acidity. The team aim to capture all the classic Mornington Peninsula grapefruit, peach and nectarine fruit characters, retaining all the freshness whilst adding complexity and texture throughout the vinification process.

Vines are cane pruned and shoot thinning is performed as early as possible in September to ensure a low number of shoots per vine to create an open canopy. This provides good air circulation and even ripening. Summer pruning on the northern side promotes a relatively early harvest. Hand picked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before being run to barrel or fermenters for vinification at low temperatures to preserve vital fruit characters. The French oak component is lees stirred over the course of three months to promote oak integration and textural complexity. Parcels are assembled into a style which can best achieve great elegance, character and depth. Alcohol 12.5%
A brilliant medium straw colour. Bouquet of citrus, stonefruit and developed lees richness. Oyster shell complexity with hints of caramel, barrel ferments and vanilla. A wonderful mineral texture on the taut, fruit filled palate, offering great length while exhibiting drying grapefruit characters, peaches and nectarine, smooth complex texture and effortless balance.
