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.

Geoff Hardy's family have been making Australian wine since 1857. Geoff grew up amongst the most distinguished vineyards in our land and he knows from good red wine. He retains access to the finest fruit in McLaren Vale and is the man behind many of our nation's most memorable vintages. Undercover is a moniker that Geoff has assigned to a collation of exceptional parcels, albeit bottled behind an abstruse label to secrete the provenance of a spectacular Shiraz.

Mitchell's largest vineyard is located at Watervale, several kilometres south of the estate wineworks. Set on the exposed eastern slopes of undulating hills, with long rows of vine, this can be a very bleak place in the middle of winter at pruning time. The isolation and chills has led to it becoming known among the vineyard workers as Alcatraz, a place to do penance in the cold, wind and rain of a Clare Valley winter. Alcatraz, which only ever yields around two ton per acre, is particularly well suited to Riesling, infusing the fruit with great depth of flavour. The fully mature vines are planted to soils that are rich red brown loam and clay over limestone, at an altitude between 300 and 400 metres.
