Producer Note

The story behind clos Clare is fast becoming a legendary tale and has earned a place in the Clare Valley’s winemaking history. This tiny, two hectare vineyard was originally part of the celebrated Florita vineyard in the Clare Valley subregion of Watervale, famed for producing outstanding dry Riesling. In 1986, Mark, Peter and John Barry purchased the whole Florita vineyard and sold off the small corner of the vineyard to a local artist, Ian Sanders and clos Clare was born. Today’s label is an original design by Ian Sanders. In 2007, Peter and Sue Barry purchased clos Clare, which by now had forged a reputation for producing one of Australia’s finest dry Rieslings. clos Clare is now run by their sons, Tom and Sam, the third generation of the Barry family and grandsons of Jim Barry, a pioneer of Clare Valley winemaking. For outstanding Clare Valley Rieslings, look no further.

Vintage

The 2014 vintage saw normal conditions for the Watervale district, with warm days and cool nights. This diurnal temperature difference led to a long ripening period and concentrated the flavours in the berries, resulting in excellent quality fruit.

Vineyard

The vineyard is located across the road from the Watervale cemetery, with headstones listing the district's who's who. The block of 30 year old Shiraz vines are grown in limestone soils and with a north-south orientation in order to optimise the exposure to the sun in this cool microclimate. The vines are spur pruned and a minimal intervention approach is undertaken in the vineyard.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand-picked at optimal ripeness, destemmed and then fermented at low temperatures in vessels with 'heading down' boards. Once the fermentation was complete, the wine was then matured in used French oak hogheads for a period of 12 months.

Tasting Note

A magnificent, stylish and well balanced Shiraz, showcasing intense aromas of blueberries and mulberries combined with overtones of chocolate and mint. The palate demonstrates integrated tannins and an abundance of fruit flavours, leading to a long finish.

Serving Suggestion

A delicious accompaniment to roast lamb with all the trimmings.
