The Wines


“Clarendon Vineyard towers high above the surrounding objects, and appears, as it truly is, a gigantic pyramid of verdure. Its slopes and summits are clothed with luxuriant vines, and their dense and verdant foliage is unbroken by one barren spot, and unvaried by one foreign plant.”

Ebenezer Ward
Australia’s first Minister Of Agriculture
1862


2017 ELDER HILL

This is particularly sinuous in form, with elegant aromas of white pepper, dried fig, and quince paste. The wine is remarkably intense, with savory flavours of anise and darker fruit notes less common to many Grenache wines. While particularly elegant and appetising now it will grow more robust in time; and with this intensity of structure, the wine has quite some time ahead of it.

2017 BROOKS ROAD

Supple and refined, the 2017 Brooks Road reflects Clarendon’s temperate climate in its elegance and finesse. Aromatically the intrigue is nearing infinite. Muddled blackberries, white pepper and bergamot dazzle while soft velvety tannins frame this stunner. Although readily enjoyable, Brooks Road has the structure to ensure decades of cellaring.

2017 THE NEST

Reminiscent of the great wines from the right bank of Bordeaux, the Nest is a refined powerhouse. This Cabernet Franc exudes aromas of dark fruit, anise, rose petal and fresh herbs. Although incredibly expressive in its youth, the Nest possesses an abundance of structure and density on the palate, guaranteeing years of cellaring bounty.

2017 THE REVIVALIST

This is a graceful wine with an abundance of allure. While quite approachable now, the 2017 will greatly benefit from some years in the cellar: it will flesh up beautifully without losing its finesse. The elegant aromas of dark cherry, ripe plum and a touch of toasty oak, compliment the tannin structure which is textbook: dry, dusty, vital and integral.

2017 TRUEMAN

This 2017 showcases fruit of rare elegance without losing any of its perfumed intensity. While its aromas of bergamot and blueberry have yet to lock in and settle, the palate’s already there: fine, fresh and strapping. On the palate, lithe tannins, lively blackberry, and perfect amounts of sinew are accentuated by a perfectly balanced acidity. Trueman is a modern Cabernet that encapsulates all the toil and antiquity of Clarendon.

2016 THE PEAKE

A gastronomic luxury of rare style and intensity, this beautiful wine is fine, supple and utterly satisfying. Aromas of blackberry, ripe fig, and Arabic coffee foretell a memorable palate of dark chocolate, baking spice and bracing minerality. The richness of the Shiraz fills out the power of the Cabernet Sauvignon, but the Peake’s silky elegance is deceptive: there’s enough form in this bottle to carry it for decades.
