Houghton make so many great wines that slip below the radar, with this Bandit another smart red almost forgotten in the scheme of things, despite the abundant quality.

Made in the mode of the famed Jack Mann, and also sourced from the revered Houghton Frankland River vineyard holdings, this is such a surprised packet, with great tannins, dark berry fruit and a little hint of mint.

Who made it?

Three British Army officers (Thomas Yule, Ninian Lowis and Richmond Houghton) established Houghton in 1836, just four years after the fledgling colony of Western Australia was founded. Their first commercial vintage, produced by Dr John Ferguson in 1859, was a modest 25 gallons. John Ferguson, a Scottish surgeon, purchased the property that year and was winemaker until 1863. His son Charles Ferguson took over the company in 1875. In 1880, Houghton received its first wine award, the 'Order of Merit' at the Great Melbourne Exhibition. This was the first of many triumphs that have paved the way for Houghton to become Western Australia's most awarded winery. The reason Houghton is Western Australia’s most awarded winery has everything to do with the people behind the wines. Home to only 13 winemakers in its entire 180-year history, today’s senior winemaker Ross Pamment, has been part of the Houghton team for almost 30 years and he continues to build on the enviable reputation shaping the Western Australian winemaking landscape.

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
