Houghton White Classic 2014

You’re not a sandgroper unless you’ve tasted this famous wine. Continues to deliver so much for so little. Lively fruit based on a Swan Valley staple of chenin blanc. It’s full of controlled tropical flavours with a crunchy mineral citrus lifted finish. Get some now and leave a bit in the cellar. It becomes something special with five years’ age.

Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2016

Fruit parcels for this iconic wine were harvested at optimum fruit flavour and acid balance. Gentle processing of the fruit and cool fermentation ensured vibrancy and fruit freshness were maintained. At the completion of fermentation, the wine was clarified, stabilised and blended. Early bottling ensured that the hallmark bright fruit flavours of this wine were retained
. The 2015 vintage marks the 78th consecutive release of this famous iconic wine.

Houghton Winemaker’s Notes

Bright pale straw in colour with a green hue. The nose displays bright, fresh aromas of lemon with tropical characters of pineapple and melon. The palate is fresh and flavorsome with fruit characters of pineapple, guava and passionfruit along with juicy citrus notes. The soft, gentle acidity provides balance and persistence of flavour. Houghton White Classic can be enjoyed as a young, fresh and fruity wine but careful cellaring of 5 – 7 years will be rewarded with toasty, marmalade like
flavour complexity.
