Claymore Voodoo Child Chardonnay 2017

19.99

Description

On the nose, white peach is entwined with smashed lemongrass, basil flowers and hints of grapefruit. The hint of oak works to give a textured and creamy succulence, with a hint of mandarin zest on the tight, drying finish. This is refined and pure Chardonnay, using a small amount of new French oak and extended lees contact giving a textured and creamy succulence, with a hint of mandarin zest for a drying finish.

Surrounded by old Riesling and Shiraz vines, Voodoo Child comes from a 5 tonne parcel of dry-grown, 1960’s Chardonnay from Claymore’s Shankly vineyard in Watervale. “Commercially it’s pure madness but I just don’t have the heart to rip these great old vines out”, says Claymore owner, Anura Nitchingham.

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.
