With access to high quality fruit and the expert advice of the district's great winemakers, Clos Clare are consistently delivering some of the Clare Valley's most impressive wines.
This 2019 Clos Clare The Hayes Boy Grenache is an Australian Grenache of the highest quality, following in the footsteps of recent vintages of this wine that have proved hugely popular. Bright crimson red in the glass, it offers an abundance of bright red fruits on the nose; raspberry and cherry, roses and spice. The medium-bodied palate is incredibly approachable, with soft red fruit flavours and a fine tannin structure. Well deserving of the high praise it's already drawn, this is a super value Clare Valley Grenache.
"93 Points. A fully destemmed parcel was blended with another duo: 10% and 20% whole-bunch respectively. The destemmed lot was extracted over the course of a month, or thereabouts. The oak, all neutral. The result is a conflation of chalky, pumice-clad tannins and bouncy red fruit, with the strongest accent on candied raspberry kirsch. Best drunk on the cooler side"- Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday Wine Companion 2021.
The Barry family bought this property in 1986 from Leo Buring in which the fruit from this vineyard went into making the benchmark Leonay wine. When the Warilto Homestead was sub-divided including a small 45 year old 5 acre parcel of the vineyard to Ian Saunders, clos Clare was born and is now proudly the wines of the Barry brothers.
The Hayes vineyard is situated in the Amaragh Valley north west of the Clare township and as planted in 1975. Originally dry bush grown vines they are now trellised and run with Bio-Dynamic practices since 2007.
