“Roman Bratasiuk is one of Planet Earth’s
greatest winemakers”

Robert Parker

 

The ultimate perfectionist, Roman Bratasiuk is often named amongst the world’s finest producers. With no formal oenological qualifications, a biochemist by profession, he has been flattering the palates of consumers and critics alike since 1989, which marks the beginning of Clarendon Hills.

Stunning sites with vines planted from the original French cuttings brought to Australia in the late 1800s are Clarendon Hills’ proud heritage. Bottling 100% varietal, single vineyard wines are a common practice for producers lucky enough to own exceptional vineyards and quality fruit however, at the beginning of Roman’s journey, he was virtually one of the pioneers. Quickly gaining a reputation for his Old Vine Grenache (McLaren Vale and Clarendon Hills specifically hold some of the oldest Grenache vines found in Australia), but today he is equally (if not more) famous for his stunning Syrah and an impressive collection of ultra high-quality wines spread across his 19
single vineyard Cuvees.

SYRAH

CLARENDON

Planted in 1965, in 2 inches of rich red loamy top soil. The slab of pure rock that lies beneath limits the vigour of the vines and appears to concentrate all components of the fruit - flavour, colour, tannin.

The vineyard produces an intensely complex and the most structured of all Grand Cru Syrahs. It demands time to unwind and reveal its glamourous mineral
focus with racy nuance.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

CLARENDON

Highly elevated in the sub district of Clarendon - the vines ripen later than most and develop individuality as a result. Richly compact soils provide depth and produce a single site Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Old Vine Grenache.

GRENACHE

CLARENDON

This is the sister wine to the 'Romas Grenache' (Romas is the steepest section of the Blewitt Springs site - always reserved and bottled uniquely for its superiority/individuality) and also the 'Onkaparinga Grenache'. Its fruit driven character and firm texture slowly diminishes toward a Classical old world like state where understated power and highly sophisticated, savoury elements speckle the completely integrated and svelte palate.

SYRAH

CLARENDON

The Moritz vineyard was planted in 1975 in a fine sandy soil with pebbled ironstone top soil. Consistent vineyard characters include roasted coffee, vibrant fruit and black olive tapenade. The quality can be seen by the density of concentration. The deep and lingering flavours of the vineyard flow.
