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.

Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants. Charlie emabarked on a crusade to conserve and restore the ancient vines, establishing his cellars at Tanunda along Krondorf Road. He has since retained the most precious parcels, once destined for the logger's axe, they are now the genesis of fruit for the distinguished Barossa brand known as Charles..

Mount Mary Quintet CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Malbec Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc Yarra Valley Victoria
Exceptional Langtons Classification. The low yielding, unirrigated vines at Mount Mary Vineyard are planted to grey sandy clay loams over broken shale soils. The percentage of each varietal included into Quintet every year is determined largely by the vagaries of vintage, factors such as fruit set and quality of harvest. An extravagantly rich cepage of Cabernet and Merlot, Malbec, Verdot and Cabernet Franc, Quintet exhibits an uncanny balance which drinks beautifully, a slight alcohol lift on finish will see it through for many years to come.

Grapes are hand picked and lightly crushed, destemmed and vinified in a mix of closed and open top fermenters for up to ten days while being treated to frequent pumpovers. Upon completion of malolactic and lees settling, the wine is transferred into a selection of new and seasoned oak barriques and larger format 1500L oak casks for a year, followed by a racking into seasoned barriques for a further ten months.
Deeply coloured, dark purple red. Lots of bright fruit, complex, a tighter, more savoury wine, earthy aromas and cedar are punctuated by raspberry notes. The palate is structured and linear, offering good weight of fruit, ripe red berry flavours and tobacco characters. A Yarra Valley of richness and length, firm tannins but very much in balance.
