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." They must be doing something right, as they recently won the Decanter Magazine "Best value Australian Red" award. We defy you to find a better tasting Aussie red for under £15 our there.
