Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Margaret River Western Australia
Clairault are all about taking care of the little things to build a much greater wine, vineyards are all managed like a wildlife sanctuary and the vinifcations are treated as gently as one can. Berries must be only barely split, to iintroduce just the right amount of tannin while retaining a press of the purest juices. The most exquisite parcels Cabernet Sauvignon, a touch of Cabernet Franc for interest and finesse, are delicately fermented before eighteen months of age in an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak, the fruit of Margaret River at its finest, graceful and most eloquent.
Deep crimson black. Aromas of cherry blossom, mulberries and aniseed, cedar and cigar box, blueberries and cassis. Highly focused, west coast Cabernet of amazing precision and drive, fine grain, mouth coating tannins in support of the dark fruit core, held in perfect balance by genteel acidity and perfectly framed oak, a luscious finish with yet more cherries and simmering French vanilla pudding oak.
