MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETITION 2020
JOSHUA TREE RIESLING 2020 FOR THE WIN!
Confirming our belief in this wine and the consistent quality it offers vintage after vintage, we are incredibly proud to annnounce not only a GOLD medal for the 2020 release but that Claymore Wines was also awarded 'Clare Valley Riesling Winemaker of the Year'.
The Melbourne International Wine Competition is peer judged and organisers had to get creative and arrange for virtual judging in the 2020 COVID-19 impacted environment.
The Joshua Tree Riesling is made from estate grown fruit all located in the Watervale sub-region of the Clare Valley; producing an appealing, fruit forward style Riesling with deliciously racy acidity and delicate aromatic profile of blossom and lime juice. Serve well chilled with oysters or other quality South Australian seafood!
