The Clairault Streicker Wines Story
Clairault Streicker Wines are a family of premium wines, crafted from our privately-owned vineyards in the Margaret River Wine Appellation of Western Australia. Since 1976 we have grown from a modest four-hectare estate to just under 200 hectares of premium Margaret River vineyards. Our continuous commitment to quality vineyard management and sound ecological practices, combined with our unparalleled geographic advantages have led to a catalogue of exceptional wines. With vineyards in three Margaret River sub-regions -Yallingup, Wilyabrup, and Karridale, Clairault and Streicker Wines have the capacity to make the most of Margaret River's diverse growing conditions.
Why's this wine for you?

Suspend your disbelief for a moment, because we too can’t believe that this Clairault Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, from one of the premium wine-making families of Margaret River, using only fruit from privately owned vineyards, is going for this cheap.

Wowzers. And it’s got 95 points from Halliday himself?

‘Another drop dead bargain. The colour waves the starting flag, the aromas and flavours of cassis leading the way, the texture plush and evocative, yet has all the structure needed. A lovely Margaret River cabernet.’ 95 points, James Halliday.

A drop dead bargain all right. Whatever you do, DON’T BUY this premium Margie Cabernet until we’ve had time to raise the price back up to a reasonable level (Big Wink).

How's it taste?
Structured yet generous entry of primary red fruit, spiced plums, and wet stone. A red and black fruit core extends the entire length of the wine, held together by tensile oak and fruit tannin and a luscious blueberry and liquorice finish.
How was it made?
The fruit is harvested, de-stemmed and crushed, so that each berry is just split. This is to ensure minimal berry degradation during the fermentation process and to promote fresh, clean flavour production by our very specifically selected yeast strain.

The wine is pumped over three times a day and then judiciously backed off as the wine develops.This wine was on skins in the fermenter for 14 days, before gentle pressing and barrelling down. The result is clean, pure fruit flavours, boasting supple yet powerful tannin. The wine was aged in French oak barriques for 10 months before the wine was removed from barrels, clarified and bottled.

James Halliday - Halliday's Wine Companion
Destemmed and lightly crushed, 14 days on skins, matured for 10 months in French barriques. Another drop dead bargain. The colour waves the starting flag, the aromas and flavours of cassis leading the way, the texture plush and evocative, yet has all the structure needed. A lovely Margaret River cabernet.

The plump blackberry and currant flavors feature a dash of vanilla and plenty of spice notes on a smooth body, ending with a matcha green tea hint. Drink now through 2029.
