Clare Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
- Medium bodied
- Clare Valley
Gone are the days when cabernet quaffers were only interested in Margs or Coonawarra. Yes they have their place, but venture outside these boundaries and you’ll discover a world of wonderful versatility when it comes to this famous variety. Clare and cabernet go together like peas and carrots; thanks to typically warm S.A. days yet surprisingly cool evenings due to some serious elevation (480m for this specific vineyard, to be precise). The result is powerful and dark fruit notes alongside graceful elegance with natural retention of acidity to provide all the length you could hope for. Clare Wine Co. has secured a vineyard in the highly sought after sub region of Polish Hill with vines now over 20 years old. With a good few years under its belt, this drop is ready for the cap to be popped and enjoyed with your nearest and dearest.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
