Clarington Merlot 2017



Ripe red fruits combined with delicate hints of blackcurrant and vanilla invites into the glass.


Prominent blackcurrant with strong flavours of spice and well managed ageing in small French Oak leads to a very elegant, soft and balanced finish. On the aftertaste lingers memories of delicate spices and black berries.

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.
