Welcome to Clayfield Wines online, the revised website adds a fresher appearance and presents our wines in an attractive contemporary format.
Clayfield Wines was established in 1999, my goal was to produce premium Grampians Shiraz in limited quantities showcasing the elegant flavours and subtle differences from vineyards within the Grampians region.
The first few vintages were produced from Shiraz supplied by several local growers and 2002 our own vines contributed a small amount to the wine. The 2002 turned out to be one of our famous Shiraz wines earning a Gold medal award at the Melbourne Wine Show. In 2006 the Clayfield Grampians Shiraz 2004 earned 5 stars in Winestate Magazine World’s Greatest Shiraz Challenge, being selected in the Judges Top Ten. This classic Shiraz also earned a top Gold Award at the Visy Australian Greatest Shiraz Challenge and was runner up overall.
The 2010 Clayfield Grampians Shiraz vintage was also reviewed highly and we were invited by Winestate Magazine to showcase our Shiraz at the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Fair in 2013.
The newest wine label in our range is the Clayfield ‘Ton Up’ Moyston Shiraz 2010 which is 100% Shiraz from our own vineyard. The Ton Up Shiraz received Gold awards and trophies for Best Regional Shiraz and Best Regional Red Wine at the Ballarat Wine Show in 2012.
Currently it is late Spring 2018, the vines are growing well and flowering has just begun. The number of bunches indicate that the 2019 yield should be good, the winter was very dry we must use the water we have sparingly for irrigation. The front block has been cultivated and sown to forage Brassica the roots of this will open the soil encouraging water to penetrate and air for soil micro-organisms to thrive.
Clayfield Moyston Vineyard is totally organic, it is my belief that this practice produces better grapes and healthier wine.
Cellar door opening hours are Monday to Saturday 9 am to 5 pm, Sunday 11 am to 4 pm. Closed Christmas Day.
