Case of x6 Clarington Chardonnay 2018

R588.00

Aroma

Concentrated flavours of ripe peach and green apple persuades one to the first sip.

Palate

This fashionable wine brings new meaning to Chardonnay with a rich palate and unprecedented flavour concentration. Ripe peach, lime and green apple persists in the mouth and lingers with notes of vanilla to a long, crisp finish.

Vinification and Maturation

Grapes came from selected terroirs with vines growing in soils with a relatively high clay and limestone content – ideal for growing outstanding Chardonnay grapes. The grapes were destemmed, juice settled and cold-fermented at 15 °C. Extended lees contact yielded the unique full style of the wine, while a stainless steel fermented component brings the fresh aromatics to this spectacular wine.

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.
