Clayfield Wines is a small boutique winery specializing in the limited production of award winning Premium Grampians Shiraz. When you visit you are greeted by the winemaker Simon Clayfield who will introduced to some of the finest Shiraz you will ever find. Clayfield Wines was established in 1999, Simon had previous experience with larger wineries since 1986 and decided to plant his own vines at the Moyston property in 1997.
This wine has initially, lots of oak on the nose, mostly pepper and spice. Swirl by swirl, the oak melts back into a fabric of dense berry fruit compote and plum flesh, iodine and brambles. The fruit doesn’t really begin to sing for a couple of days; it ends up gaining character and purity, becoming a thoroughly regional expression of Shiraz fruit aromas.
