Claymore ‘Skinny Love’ First Crush Viognier 2018

17.99 13.99



An early harvest wine that shows pretty floral notes of jasmine and white peach.

From Claymore’s Watervale vineyard, this Clare Valley Viognier is picked early to retain natural acid, with minimal intervention in the winemaking ensuring that the mouthfeel is soft, balanced, integrated and appealing. Slightly on the sweeter side, this is extremely pretty, delicate and approachable, stone fruit (apricot) and honeydew melon on the finish complemented by natural acid and retained natural sugars.

This is an ideal luncheon wine with it’s relatively low alcohol and off-dry sweetness, and is just sensational with spicy prawns or Thai curries.

  • Off dry, aromatic, floral
  • 750 ml.
  • 10.5% Alcohol
  • Screwcap
  • Drink by 2021

Producer: Claymore Wines

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.
