"Wine is the only artwork you can drink" - Luis Fernando Olaverri.
Grape varieties and regional expression infused with life’s passions drive our winemaking style. The grapes are nurtured in the vineyard, harvested at optimal flavour and ripeness with an eye to balance and intensity. Gentle, intuitive winemaking produces wines of elegance and structure.
The songs, albums and artists that have inspired many of our labels are those that resonate beyond their time, across generations and have become something of modern classics.
Our range includes wines made from elegant Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mataro, Sangiovese, Malbec and Tempranillo to crisp Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Chardonnay. But above all, we create wine to be enjoyed with food and among friends.
Just over 20 years ago, Claymore Wines was humbly established with small volumes of Grenache and Riesling from a single vineyard in Penwortham. Since then, the estate has grown to include additional varientals and 44 hectares across three additional vineyards in Watervale.
Across the different vineyards, there is an assortment of soil profiles and delightfully eclectic mix of new and old vines. Some of Riesling vines are over eighty years old and great pride is taken to preserve the heritage and integrity of the vines to ensure continuous longevity.
It's the diversity merged with modern winemaking practices and old world ideals that creates broad flavour profiles in our range of wines that excites the palate.
