Houghton EV/37 Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2023


Oh my, we’re on to something here. Chenin blanc has been a part of Houghton from 1937 when Jack Mann created the famous White Burgundy (now White Classic) from Swan Valley Chenin Blanc. This has been made from old vine Margaret River Chenin and is a stunning expression of a variety that continues to reveal new chapters to its playbook. The wine has a smoky citrussy aroma with muted tropical fruits whilst the palate is intense and complex with tremendous depth and persistence. It has a chalky feel with a characteristically fine bright minerally acidity making for cellaring potential.
