Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia
Margaret River makes mighty Cabernet but Clairault make a priority of gentle winemaking. Parcels are cannily crushed so that each berry is only, barely just split, affording the ferments minimal berry degradation, encouraging the retention of fresh, clean varietal Cabernet characters in the finished wine. Vinified on skins for optimal extraction and treated to a timely ten months in nothing but the finest French oak, a vivid articulation of Margaret River Cabernet, brimming with dark blue currants and cassis, its refined minerality resolving on a refreshing glace cherry finish.
