Natalie's Score: 90/100

Good juicy bite on he palate of this full-bodied, savoury Australian red wine. Not all fleshy fruit... this wine talks back (to your senses and reason). The Claymore Shiraz Viognier is juicy and mouth-watering with purple and black plum aromas and flavours. Full-bodied, smooth and satisfying. Satin smooth tannins with a long finish. Great value. Pair with a rare steak.

Shiraz food pairings: steak, hamburgers, meat lovers pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

From Clare Valley in South Australia, a very dark garnet red, aromatic Shiraz with dark red fruit, plums and spice on the nose. The palate repeats with a peppery tang. Full-bodied, well-balanced, elegant finish.
This full-bodied Australian red wine is mostly Shiraz, with a splash of the white wine grape Viognier, which gives it a floral lift through the mid-palate. This blend is popular in Australia and creates wine of great complexity and depth. This is a robust blend of two estate-grown Clare Valley Shiraz vineyards that are dry grown and aged in spicy oak. Pair this wine with relaxing. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
