2017 Clairault Margaret River Cabernet Merlot
Clairault was established in 1974, making it one of the early wineries in the region. In 2002 John Streicker purchased the property and grew the vineyards holdings. They now have vineyards in three of the sub regions and sell much of their fruit to other producers.
This 2017 Cabernet Merlot won a Gold Medal at the 2021 Decanter World Wine Awards. The oak is noticeable on the nose with vanilla and mocha aromas. The palate is silky smooth, with blackcurrant fruits and smooth tannins.
