It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat.

Pepperjack are designed from the vineyard to the bottle, to be rich, bold red wines. Choice parcels of Shiraz exhibiting a concentration of flavour are assembled, red berries and rich plums, savoury notes and ripe tannins. Crafted to a combination of traditional old world winemaking methods and modern vinification techniques, fruit is treated to a course of maceration for optimal extraction of tannins and colour, followed by a week or two of ferment and transfer to a selection of French and American oak barrels for malolactic and fifteen months maturation. The individual components are separately aged and the candidate barrels are determined through a staged selection process.
Rich red colour with dark purple rim. Nose of rich concentrated red and blue fruits, dark chocolate and rich mocha notes with hints of spice and cedary oak. The palate is rich and plush with good structure, a concentrated layer of berry fruit flavours and judicious oak, balanced by fine tannins to give length and power while finishing soft and full of flavour.
