Houghton Crofters Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is a brilliant deep dark red in colour, with a bright scarlet hue. The bouquet displays intense aromatics of cassis, dark chocolate, cigar box, crushed bay leaf and black olive combined with subtle toasty vanillin flavours derived from French oak maturation. A generous, plush mouthfeel supports the bright fruit flavours, with hints of mocha and cassis, and a firm, fine tannin structure with balanced acidity providing lovely texture and length. While drinking well now, the wine will comfortably cellar over the next 10 years.
