Description

Perfumed lifted fresh oak integrates with nuances of brambly forest fruits and dark olive tapenade on the nose. The palate is dark and opulent, juicy dark fruit flavours of blood plums and blackcurrants, with persistent, mouthcoating tannins and balanced oak that lifts rather than overpowers the wine.

Careful oak selection, with 20% new French oak and 80% older French and American barrels, ensures this Shiraz will continue to give for the next 8-10 years.

To be enjoyed with rich lush dishes.

Situated in the beautiful Clare Valley in South Australia, Claymore Wines is now in its third decade. Claymore’s founder and owner, Anura Nitchingham has three great loves in his life – wine, music and football – and he celebrates all of them through the winery he began in the 1990s, having arrived there with his family after a successful medical career back in the UK.

Today his range of award winning wines include Liverpool FC related drops such as the Robbie Fowler Signature Shiraz, the ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ Grenache and Sauvignon Blanc and the ‘This is Anfield’ Sparkling wine. In addition to his great passion for Liverpool, Anura also entwines his love of music into the vision for his varietals and names his wines after his favorite songs and albums through time. Wines such as the ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ Cabernet Sauvignon and the ‘London Calling’ Cabernet Malbec have struck a chord with music and wine lovers, bringing new layers of personal and multi-generational connection.

With years of internal European vineyard experience as well as positions at Peter Lehman and Tin Shed Wines, the eighth generation winemaker, Nathan Norman, oversees all vineyard and wine making operations and ensures each vintage consistently brings the best the region has to offer.
