Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The wines have a striking, almost brilliant red colour. The nose is still rather closed at the present time, but shows powerful red fruit aromas. There are also overtones of blackcurrant, blackberry, fig, and hazelnut. The Cabernets had a fine colour as well as fresh, subtle fruit. The blend includes some from the Médoc as well.
The wine starts out quite vivacious, going on to reveal smooth tannin. The Merlot once again provides good structure because the tannin has considerable character, but is delicate and non-astringent. The balance is fresh and attractive, altogether in Clarendelle's signature style.
