Clarry's is a 100% Organic wine as certified by Australian Certified Organic, grown, vintaged and matured on the Kalleske estate at Greenock. The Grenache is from vines dating back to the 1940s, Mataro and Shiraz and Mataro are sourced from a number of blocks, characterised by shallow, sandy loam over superb deep red clay and limestone, providing ideal conditions for viticulture. All components are vinified separately in open top fermenters and pumped over by hand twice daily. After a week or two on skins, ferments are treated to a traditional pressing. To preserve the superb fresh fruit flavours of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz, components are aged exclusively in very old oak hogsheads for a few short months.
Bright red purple colour. Lifted aromatics of bright red fruit, crushed raspberry, cherry perfume, white pepper spice and rose florals. The medium bodied palate is bursting with fresh juicy red fruits, rhubarb, raspberry and black cherry. Natural chalky tannins add backbone and structure. Maturation in seasoned oak adds complexity while respecting the purity of fruit, lingering finish, an opulent fruit driven wine.
