Case of x6 Clarington Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2016

R738.00

Aroma

Ripe wild berries combined with delicate hints of ripe fruits and cedar wood invites into the glass.

Palate

Prominent black cherries, dark spices and ripe black fruit mixed with well managed ageing in small French oak leads to a very elegant and balanced finish with subtle grip. On the aftertaste linger memories of delicate oak, black fruit and mixed spice.

Vinification and Maturation

Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness for this elegant wine style. Fermentation in stainless steel was followed up by ageing the wines on 100% French oak for 8-10 months before bottling. An elegant red blend with typical mix of red and black berries followed by a classy hint of spice and oak on the lingering aftertaste.

Description

Inspired by the natural relationship between art and wine, the Clarington bottle was perfected over several years, and specifically conceptualised to honour the art of winemaking.

An artist’s homage, it’s a perfect analogy for the wine itself. Deceptively simple, carefully considered and beautifully crafted. Every careful detail designed to underline the rich sensory experience of a fine wine.

The high gloss, organic ink coating, influenced by traditional block colouring, is a global patented design and a world first, with each bottle undergoing an intricate five-step process to deliver a vessel that is beautifully designed and visually impactful.

This quality execution of the design means that, whilst the wine should be enjoyed today, the beauty of each bottle can be appreciated for years to come, making Clarington as much a work of art on the outside as it is on the inside.

Much greater than the sum of its parts, Clarington is a story beyond the expertise, beyond the experience; it is a story of a team’s deep commitment to excellence. An embodiment of their desire to innovate and their obsession with creating a collection of wines that in every way, is more than an art… it is art.
