Claymore Bittersweet Symphony Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Claymore’s Bittersweet Symphony Cabernet offers a perfume of olives and blue fruits along with some violet. Blackcurrant, plums, a twist of dark chocolate and black olive are at play on the palate. Delicious now but will probably improve for 15 or more years. Decant it a couple of hours before drinking and pair it up with protein like a really good steak or gourmet snaggers if you are planning on drinking it soon.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

Year in year out this is one of Australia’s most consistent and consistently underpriced wineries. It has a level of polish and sophistication we normally (but don’t always) see in reds at $50 a bottle and over. A 5 star James Halliday rated winery, Claymore wines began in 1997 with just a tiny amount of Grenache and Riesling but have flourished into one of Clare Valley’s best known producers. They signed a 3-year contract in 2015 with English Football giants Liverpool, much to the dismay of our Manchester United tasting panel member Dan. Even Dan though cannot let his football bias affect how truly great the Claymore wines are! Their labels are inspired by some of the great music of the modern times, from Pink Floyd to Prince to The Verve and even a little Stevie Wonder. All in all, fantastic wines with an edgy feel. Whether you want to open a bottle and belt out a riff, or warm up the vocals and sing “you’ll never walk alone,” Claymore have you covered!
