Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker.

Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine.

Claymore Bittersweet Symphony Cabernet CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec Clare Valley South Australia
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.
