VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

This wine is a blend of the classic Rhone varieties of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataró (also known as Mourvèdre). The fruit was picked over a few days in early April, sorted and cold soaked in small fermenters for ten days, before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration, the varietal batches kept separate throughout. Thirty percent of the wine was matured in new oak barriques, the balance went to one and two-year-old barriques for ten months.

The Southern Rhône is one of the giants on the global wine scene. Singlefile’s Clément V is our salute to the role this “Avignon Pope” played in establishing the viticulture of this iconic region. 

THE WINE

A medium bodied blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataró, this wine has bright, perfumed aromatics of red fruits and spice with a subtle savoury edge. The palate is plush, with a smoothly textured mouth feel with fine grained chewy tannins. Medium bodied and well suited to complement food.

Magnificent wine that is full of flavour with nice oak but not too heavy and suits drinking in Perth's warmer climate perfectly.

I recently opened a back vintage of this wine - a 2014 that I received as part of my club membership. A fantastic spice taste fills the mouth before swallowing. I would even suggest a Cardamon heightened finish with a softening of berries with citrus and spice. The sense of the wines aromas and blending flavours is just so satisfying!
