Claymore Bittersweet Symphony Cabernet
Clare Valley
Available by the dozen
Medical practitioners are conspicuously over represented statistically amongst the roll call of Australia's boutique wineries and grand, baronial winemaking estates. Is it all about the quest for a healthy mind and healthy body, or is it something rather more indulgent that our physicians are practising? Clearly not a depraved effort by any means, Bittersweet Symphony is a poised and gracious Cabernet wine, brimming with Clare Valley elegance, endowed with fragrant perfumes, layers of clean berry fruit and sleek, cultivated tannins.

Claymore has achieved wide industry acclaim from peers and the wine show circuit. Disparate lots of parched fruit are high maintenance, but Claymore have never compromised in terms of quality. Unirrigated, the vineyard yields only small volumes of no more than two tonnes per acre, but this is more than compensated by the quality of the final wine. The underlying philosophy is to keep things fun, whilst practising an exacting attention to detail. Bittersweet Symphony has spent in excess of eighteen months maturing in a careful selection of new and prior use, predominantly French oak. Time in barrel gives the opportunity for the naturally pronounced tannins of the Cabernet to soften and integrate.
 
Deep crimson red with purple hues. Bright and lively aromatics of sweet berry, bramble and sour cherry dominate. The oak is subtle and lightly applied, showing as notes of cigar box and spice. All those bright fruits continue in the mouth alongside hints of white pepper and cocoa. The finish is all fresh raspberry rounded out by integrated silken tannin that builds gently, glass after glass.

Dark blood red. Cassis and dark plum, leathery spice and regional notes of fennel mint. Juicy plum and dark cherry characters over a slate granite earthiness, deep, dark and dangerously intense, integrated tannins and dense fruits wound up in savoury spice, alluring with a lingering persistence, the synergy between delicate and robust which defines the most exquisite Clare Valley Cabernet.

Physicians become great winemakers, they are innately attuned to the biology and alchemy required for constructing the sanest wines. Dark Side of the Moon is crafted from parcels of exceptional Clare Valley Shiraz, displaying great concentration and depth of flavour. Claymore's estate vineyard is non-irrigated with low yields averaging 1½ to 2 tonnes per acre, keeping production at this boutique winery to a modest few thousand cases. Grapes are sourced from sites at Leasingham, Watervale and Penwortham, with contributions from eminent growers in other parts of Valley Clare. The finished Dark Side Shiraz is treated to an extended maturation in seasoned and new French and American oak barrels.
 
Dark, bright purple colour. Pretty aromatics of crushed violets, dark berries and anise, underlaid by complexing oak derived notes of spices and toast. A gentler acid structure on the palate where juicy berries and dark plum fruits shine alongside mocha notes. Tannins are moderate, gently coating the palate, oak is integrated, to complement rather than overshadow the fruit.
Claymore Ian Rush Reserve Shiraz
Clare Valley
Available in cartons of six

Sent to a high selection of new French oak for a term of extended age, candidate barrels are shortlisted after a year's oak maturation, returned to rest for another year before a serious sampling to determine the final cut. Full bodied, rich and intense Shiraz with powerful dark fruits and mouth filling savouryness, lifted spice intertwines with velvetine, spoon coating tannins, a generosity of fruit sweetness and opulent palate length.

From one of the most parched sites in Valley Clare, the vines sprout bunches of tiny shrivelled berries, yielding small volumes of intensely flavoured juices, to be vinified by the eminent O'Leary Walker winemaking team.
