2016 Clairault Margaret River Cabernet Merlot

12 bottles

Out of stock. Contact us to order this product.

77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. 

Nose: Vibrant aromas of mulberries, vanilla pod, freshly ground coffee and violets. 
Palate: Rich and luscious with mulberries continuing through, black currants and dark chocolate with an elegant finish of bold tannin and soft, glazed plum.

Winemaking note: The Cabernet Sauvignon portion of the blend is de-stemmed and partially crushed, to ensure minimal berry degradation during the fermentation process. The Merlot is fully pressed to expose the delicate flesh and promote a more refined and elegant textural development. Cool fermentation results in a slower, more controlled extraction of tannin and flavour. The wine was aged in French oak for 10 months before bottling.

Another winery that deserves to be better known, and this red shows why: it’s an old style Bordeaux, when the reds of that region focused on finesse instead of super ripe power. Medium bodied, the fruit is rich enough and infused with dried herbs, tobacco and gravel dust, finishing with a decent tannin grip.
