REGION: Clare Valley, Australia
INFO: Claymore are an operation really making waves. Marnie Roberts, the winemaking genius behind these amazing wines, is classically Australian in word, if not in deed: "My philosophy for wine making is balance and let the fruit do the work without working it hard. If you have great fruit, the rest is easy... just don’t stuff it up." The cooler Clare Valley region of South Australia is known for producing great Rieslings, and this is surely one of the best we've ever had from here.
