Clairault Estate Cabernet Receives Top Score from Decanter Magazine.
In a coup for Clairault wines, the 2012 Clairault Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was the only wine awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating and 95 points in a recent Decanter magazine tasting.
The tasting focussed on Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignons from the 2012 and 2013 vintages. Respected wine judges Sarah Ahmed, Justin Knock MW and Anthony Rose conducted the tasting, with 80 wines representing the region.
Sarah Ahmed noted that the Cabernets from Margaret River "...have an Old World feel in terms of their acid and tannin structure." In particular she recognised the Clairault Estate Cabernet as being, "dignified and handsome, with a perfumed finish tinged with earth and kelp, lending a sense of place and real character".
John Streicker, proprietor of Clairault | Streicker Wines, was very pleased with the result, “the Clairault Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is made with fruit from the original 1976 plantings. An award like this is a tribute to our heritage, and to our team’s devotion to quality.”
The Clairault Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is available now in our Caves Road Cellar Door, online and at selected retail outlets. Learn more about Decanter here.
