Houghton Gladstones Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
A wine that pays homage to Dr John Gladstones whose work was largely responsible for the development of Margaret River. This is right up there with any that have been made, coming from a vintage that was well suited to the variety. Leafy blackcurrant fruit with a graphite oyster shell nuance working with a sliver of black olive. It’s a substantial and powerful wine, yet there is elegance and poise that stems from the clever balance of fruit, oak and tannin.
