Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purpled crimson. A pure and perfumed cabernet berry lift headlines this vineyard. Blue fruits in background with lavender, violet and rose petal florals are denominated by savory notes of couch leather, cigar and tobacco. Long, fine-grained tannins are balanced within an elegant varietal expression. The chalky but not dry extract complements the remarkably feminine composure of this vineyard. The Brookman site is dogeared with sustained softness and plush-ness which makes for a beautifully understated and vivid expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.

About Clarendon Hills:

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.
