Clémentine' the Best Wine in Ray Jordan's Top 100
'Clémentine' Cabernet Merlot Petit Verdot
Woodlands is celebrating the outstanding review from Ray Jordan in today’s West Australian, awarding Clémentine the Best Wine in Ray Jordan’s Top 100.
Our newest addition to the Woodlands family, the ‘Clementine’ 2015, was rated 96/100.
So here it is…the unquestioned wine of the tasting. The Watson Family who own Woodlands have poured their hearts and souls into crafting not just good wines but great wines. It is a real family affair and the results have been quite remarkable in recent years. Initially it was David and Heather Watson but now the boys Stuart and Andrew are driving things – with a decent bit of help from the old man, I suspect.
This new release is a blend of 55 per cent cabernet with remainder mainly merlot and malbec and just a small amount of petit verdot. The remarkable thing is that this sophisticated and most expressive wine is selling for less than $40. The fruit intensity is superb and the oak so well managed. It is quality through and through and clearly has class stamped all over it. 96/100
