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.
