Clarke impresses at Citran

Chateau Clarke, owned by Benjamin de Rothschild, played a blinder at the 2016 en primeur tastings held at Chateau Citran this week. This branch of the Rothschild family are partners with the Rupert family at Fredericksburg so there is a very real chance South Africans will get to taste this wine, the Zupta Randela notwithstanding.

2016 is looking like being written up as a classic Cabernet vintage and a marvelous one for Merlot. So producers are adjusting their recipes to increase Merlot and prices too, most likely.
