James' Review

Claymore Wines is the venture of Anura Nitchingham, a medical professional who imagined that it would lead the way to early retirement (which, of course, it did not). The starting date depends on which event you take: the first 4ha vineyard at Leasingham purchased in 1991 (with 70-year-old grenache, riesling and shiraz); ?96, when a 16ha block at Penwortham was purchased and planted to shiraz, merlot and grenache; ?97, when the first wines were made; or ?98, when the first releases came onto the market. The labels are inspired by U2, Pink Floyd, Prince and Lou Reed. Exports to the UK, Canada, Denmark, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.

About this winery

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 10 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.
