Tasting Notes:

This multi-faceted, oak-matured wine is a bold yet elegant, well- balanced expression of a classic Bordeaux varietal. Prominent blackcurrant with strong flavours of spice and well managed oak ageing leads to a very elegant, soft and balanced finish. On the aftertaste lingers memories of delicate spices and black berries.

The creation of Clarington is a story that spans a very special journey of more than eight years. It is a story of unique natural attributes, of thoughtful consideration, of exceptional craft and most importantly, of passion and commitment. Everything, in fact, that makes a great wine stand out from a good wine.

Our vineyards are surrounded by fresh springwater streams running down from the mountains, irrigating the clay layer in the sub soil and creating a perfect medium that acts as a buffer during the summer heat to protect the vines. Well drained colluvium (a mix of sand, sandstone, quartz stones and rocks) lies above the clay layer and is ideal for flourishing vines. The topsoil is made up of the unique weathered Table Mountain sandstone. The well-drained soil on the farm enables our vines to have exactly the sought after moderate vigour that is the basis for our exceptional wines.

Each varietal is carefully crafted to display its inimitable character: to seduce with a rich and pleasing nose... to captivate with a first taste... to enslave with memorable follow-through.
