Refined, poised and balanced, it’s a serious drop made with weight and layering – a focused citrus line intricately underlaid with fresh talc and white blossom, and a palate of finger limes, apple blossom, lifted minerals and bath salts.The Superstition Reserve Riesling is a taken from the oldest Riesling vines in the Claymore estate, part of the Shankly vineyard. Grapes are hand-picked and the wine cold fermented from 100% free run juice – this is all about the exceptional fruit.

It will cellar for years, if you can wait that long.

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.

    Campbell Mattinson

    The label design is a bit on the scary side but there’s nothing scary about the wine quality.

    Rich, textural Riesling. Youthful and vibrant but inherently complex. Not your average Kaos killer, you might say. Kaffir lime, lemon sorbet, gun smoke, a spray of herbs. Chalk. Musk. Fennel seeds. Really quite super.
