Claymore 'London Calling' Cabernet Malbec 2019
A big, strapping blend of 70% Cab and 30% Malbec from the region that makes these blends most effortlessly. There’s a juicy plushness and the scent of violets from the Malbec, with the Cab bringing grunty black fruits, greenery and fine savoury tannins. Awesome already, this will also reward a decade’s patience.

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 the 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!
