This Shiraz honours Thomas Newte Yule, who in 1836 was part of a syndicate of three British army officers who together purchased the northern half of a large land-holding in the Swan Valley. The property was named Houghton after the most senior of the trio – Lieutenant Colonel Richmond Houghton. During Thomas Yule’s management, the first vines were established. This Shiraz is sourced from the Frankland River wine- growing region - renowned for producing some of the best examples of Shiraz in Western Australia.

The Frankland River wine growing region has produced some of the best examples of Shiraz made in Western Australia. The Thomas Yule Shiraz is an excellent example of the philosophies and outcomes that our viticulturists and winemakers strive to achieve.

Deep, dark garnet colour with red purple hue. Ripe, brooding fruit. Blackberry, plum skin and dark cherry flavours with black pepper, cardamom and cocoa. Subtle vanillin and chocolate box characters derived from fine oak maturation. Lovely, rich and spicy fruit flavours are carried on a lovely acid line to the wine, that finishes savoury and dry. A firm tannin structure supports the palate, leading to a persistent and sustained finish. While this wine will drink well now, it will benefit from extended cellaring over the next 20+ years

Pair perfectly with an Osso Bucco or a Char grilled steak
