Vintage: The 2017 vintage was a classic cooler vintage for McLaren Vale with robust yet elegant characters.

Originally founded in 1990 and now part of Nick Haselgrove Wine’s stable, Clarence Hill today is known for making wines style and drinkability using our vineyards and our family of growers.

In a winemaker’s journey through the annual vintage, special parcels of fruit are identified—this wine uses fruit from McLaren Flat. Grapes are allowed to ripen fully before open fermentation with longer extraction, including use of cold soak maceration.

From a 40 year old vineyard in McLaren Flat we allowed full maturity then harvested to open fermenters for a long cool fermentation prior to maturation in a mixture of oak barrels of which 25% are new. After blending individually selected barrels this wine is bottled. We decided to use DIAM cork for this wine to allow wine development with a traditional, yet risk free experience.
