'Clémentine' is our Woodlands Brook Vineyard Cabernet blend, taking its name from Andrew and Marie's daughter.

The fruit was harvested over three weeks from the 27th of March 2019, gently destemmed, then hand -sorted berry by berry in the winery. In 2019 this wine was fermented without added yeast, which we feel has enhances complexity, particularly in the aromas. Following ferment the wine spent 17 months in French oak barrels, 60% of which were new.

Our 2019 'Clémentine' is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 18% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

Bright crimson in colour, the nose is saturated with aromas. Black and red cherry, raspberry, star anise, five-spice and cedar oak feature. The palate reveals more primary red fruit, together with liquorice and cocoa. Fresh acidity keeps everything in balance, while spice and young firm tannins unveil upon decanting.

This wine will be best enjoyed between 2026-2029.

Match this wine with wood-fired pork chops, potatoes and caramelised onion in thyme butter.

Or try with pizza bianca with potatoes, mascarpone and rosemary.

Our Second Vineyard – Established In 2001

Woodlands Brook Vineyard

The vineyard faces north west on free-draining Wilyabrup soils. The rows are a mere 2 metres from each other, providing a vine density roughly double that of the Woodlands vineyard. The soils are Wilyabrup Class 1 – with a clay loam top soil, a bed of gravel and then a bed of white clay. The existing vineyard is on a very gentle west facing slope, surrounded by south facing pastoral land.
