Expert Reviews

"Like the riesling in this range which is sourced from Eden Valley. It is only lightly influenced by oak but in the main it is all peachy and melon with a trace of citrus tang. Crunchy fruit on the finish, an eminently appealing and drinkable wine.'" 89 Points - The West Australian, Thursday 28th of November

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

After 20 years in vineyard development, Thorn-Clarke is without doubt one of the most exciting Barossa Valley brands to enter the market in some time. The name Thorn-Clarke derives literally from the relationship between two long time Barossa Families. Founders David and Cheryl Clarke (Nee Thorn) work with their son and daughter, Sam and Nicole, in this family-orientated business. With four family-owned vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valley, Thorn-Clarke produces wines across three ranges (Sandpiper, Shotfire and William Randell). All represent exceptional value and display true regional character. This label showcases the best that the Barossa has to offer.
