Clos Clare is a boutique winery located in the famous Florita Vineyard of Watervale (Clare Valley, SA) owned and run by 3rd generation wine growers/makers Sam and Tom Barry.
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.
As third generation of the winemaking Barry family we now hold the keys to this boutique winery. With access to wonderful fruit and the kind advice of the district's great winemakers, it's a chance to show our mettle and skills. A medium to light bodied wine, the 2018 is fresh and youthful in the glass, showing bright red with purple hues. The nose has hints of cloves and asian spices, along with dark cherry and satsuma plum characters. The palate shows a good core of dark and red fruits balanced with a sway of firm tannins. The wine finishes with savoury dark earth characters.
