The Domaine Clarendon 2017 BDX is a composition of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and is gorgeously weighted, multi layered and approachable right now with aristocratic tannin polished to a point of perfection. Think mahogany furniture aromas with mocha and black currant with floral violets. This is wonderfully delicate, elegant and sumptuous and reflects the Merlot bias in proportionality and is subsequently extremely rewarding to drink right now.
The Domaine Clarendon Grenache is made from a blend of Old Bush Vine Grenache vineyards ingredients and represents a constitution of some of the best Grenache vineyards in all McLaren Vale. The wine is best described as a classic expression of Grenache with lifted rose petal and lavender florals atop a foundation of naturally acidic raspberry and red cherry. This highly perfumed example is finely balanced and supported by polished and lengthy tannins with a generous fruit weight. The 2017 new release is a sure fire aperitif fit for the most discerning taster.
The 2017 Domaine Clarendon Syrah is wonderfully composed with magically soft and supple velvet tannins with roast meat, graphite and leather nuances throughout forrest berries. A brooding, highly sophisticated expression that reflects the ancient Clarendon, McLaren Vale terroir with artisan flair.
