Overview

Elegance and restraint are keys to this wine. A big mouthful of black currant fruits is backed up by careful oak integration that delivers structure and depth. Savoury tannins are harmonious with the ever-present lashings of wild berries, liquorice and hints of leather and cedar.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour - Bright ruby red

Bouquet - A distinctive varietal aroma of dark boysenberry and violets hits you at first but a little patience will reveal deeper characters of earthy forest floor leaves, cooked beetroot and hints of dried herbs. The Merlot integrates beautifully to enhance and intensify.

Palate - Elegance and restraint are keys to this wine. A big mouthful of black currant fruits is backed up by careful oak integration that delivers structure and depth. Savoury tannins are harmonious with the ever-present lashings of wild berries, liquorice and hints of leather and cedar.

General - Cabernet in the Clare Valley is distinct and powerful. It is one of the stronger varieties suited to the growing conditions and terroir of the region. The use of Merlot has a generous and appealing impact on the sometimes edgy and potent characters of Cabernet. They work hand in hand to give balance and richness to the drinker. Distinctly Cabernet with violets, leafy notes and red fruits, this wine is approachable and generous.

Serve With - Our winemaker suggests pancetta wrapped lamb cutlets with olive tapenade served with grilled field mushrooms in sage butter.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Claymore Wines, situated in the beautiful Clare Valley in South Australia, began in 1997 with small volumes of Grenache and Riesling, and has now grown to almost 15,000 cases per year across a highly awarded range of wines.

We draw fruit from our five premium estate owned vineyards at Penwortham (the backbone of our red wine production) and Watervale (home to our Joshua Tree vineyard). These sites have been specifically chosen for their suitability for our staple varieties – Shiraz, Riesling, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our labelling is inspired by some of the great music of modern time - from rock, punk and folk. Our wines are about bringing together great passions to create the ultimate experience. We pride ourselves on meticulous winemaking using only the best fruit, but when it comes to enjoying a glass we don't take ourselves too seriously! So turn up the volume on a soundtrack of your choice, crack a bottle with friends, and relax.
