Father and son combine for Clare Valley flagship

Family-owned Clare Valley winery Paulett is to launch a new vintage of its flagship red - a collaboration between father Neil Paulett and son Matthew. 

Labelled 47/74 Hand Crafted, the wine is a blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon from the 2013 vintage and will retail for $110. It hits the market next month. 
Neil Paulett, who has headed the family business with wife Alison for close to 35 years, was born in 1947 and his son in 1974, hence the name of the wine. Matthew is the vineyard manager as well as playing an increased role in the winery.

"We have tasted and blended this wine to reflect the power, unity and complexity of like wines merged into one," says Neil Paulett. "The name 47/74 reflects the mirror image of our births and symbolises the transition of the old into the new."

The wine, as you'd expect is an intense and complex beast, dark and brooding now with ripe plum and spice notes and a surprising softness on the palate. A definite cellar prospect.
