The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

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 best possible Shiraz wine from the most prized vineyards. Crushed, destemmed and fermented in five, seven and ten tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs up to three times daily during peak fermentation for the extraction of colour and tannin. Following seven to twenty one days of maceration on skins the free run juices are drained to tank as the skins are pressed. Both the free run and pressings are blended to tank and then racked to oak after twenty four hours. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Ares is treated to a minimal fining and is bottled unfiltered. Ares reposes twenty three months in oak, the final year is spent in completely new French hogsheads.
Deep red and black with magenta rim. Bright and intense, volumes of rich berries, plums and maraschino cherry. The aromas are continually evolving, also bringing cedary spice, subtle lavender, bitter chocolate, tar and fudge. A palate with great depth of flavour, a wine of finesse. Juicy plums and blueberry dominate early to mid palate, then underlying cedary chocolate notes emerge carrying the wine through, tightening up again to a focused core of fruit, tannins and spice.
