Claymore God is a DJ Riesling 2021
- Clare Valley
We’d like to welcome another vintage of one of our Clare Valley favourites. When it comes to the legendary producer Claymore, I always think - come for the reds, and stay for the riesling. They have a few rieslings in their collection, all excellent examples of what Clare Valley does best. God is a DJ is their weeknight rizza and it gets more serious as you move up the range. It’s floral and sherberty on the nose with a few funky notes too. It follows with a dry and textural palate that is pithy and citric - vibrant and classic. It has a super-dry finish and my notes say “it’s pretty bloody delicious”.
“Gorgeously pristine and poised, the wine shows lime cordial, green apple, floral and wet limestone nuances on the nose, leading to a finely textured palate offering excellent focus and drive. Splendidly pure and refined with a persistent mouth-watering finish.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
