2003 clarendon hills, brookman merlot, south australia
Why We're Buying
Clarendon Hills is the pride and joy of Roman Bratasiuk, a South Australian by way of Ukraine. His passions for science and winemaking have resulted in some of the region's finest wines, including Brookman Merlot. The supple and age-worthy red is a go-to choice for anyone looking to invest in Australian wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2003 Merlot Brookman Vineyard (which saw about 40% new French oak) is superb. A strong case can be made that there is no better Merlot being made in Australia. It is a dense, thick, juicy effort offering hints of roasted coffee intertwined with berry fruit and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, long, opulent, and silky, it should be enjoyed over the next 10+ years.
