DOUBLE TROPHY + GOLD
Clairault ESTATE Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Trophy—Best Australian Cabernet Sauvignon !
Trophy—Best Western Australian Red ! [2nd consecutive year]

“Very typical Margaret River nose—ripe, maturing aromas of black fruit, and a pencil shaving and bell pepper palate. Very good structure, with ripe tannins, spice. The finish has liquorice notes and is elegant and satisfying.”

SILVER Clairault Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 (雅得蕊獨家販售)
“Green bell pepper, tobacco leaf and black fruit on the nose, cooked fruit on the palate. Slightly minty, underpinned by fine tannins, an elegant finish, complexity and good balance.”

SILVER Clairault Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2008
“The nose has gooseberry crispness backed by sweetened melon. Depth of fruit on the palate, with a fleshy feel at the back.”

BRONZE Clairault Sauvignon Blanc 2008
“Intense flavour with asparagus and passion fruit. Good balanced medium body, and a persistent finish.”

COMMENDED Clairault Shiraz 2005

ABOUT CLAIRAULT

Established in 1976, Clairault Wines is one of the oldest privately owned vineyards in the premier Wilyabrup appellation of the Margaret River Wine Region. Owned by The Martin Family, Clairault produces 200 tonne of exceptional quality wines and continues to enjoy much success at prestigious wine shows within Australia and overseas.

This is as a result of an uncompromising focus on quality rather than volume. In the Vineyard, this has
involved the deployment of biological farming and a significant investment into mature vine management. Biological farming is a mix of organic and conventional farming techniques which places a strong emphasis on soil biology. These techniques result in high quality crops, while using significantly less herbicide, no insecticides and no synthetic fertilisers.

The biological farming, sustainable and low intervention approach techniques that were introduced into the Estate’s vineyard six years ago are unmistakably enhancing the quality of the fruit. This, along with the outstanding winemaking skills of Will Shields and his team,creates a wine that is truly unique and distinctive to Clairault’s vineyards.

Clairault has also earned an enviable reputation as one of the regions most popular Cellar Door restaurants, offering a sophisticated yet relaxed dining experience to accompany the internationally acclaimed wines. A natural extension to the existing wine tourism experience will be the future development of a European styled five star vineyard spa resort. This is expected to be developed over the next 2 years.
