Expert Reviews

Cool, dusty cabernet with boysenberry and mulberry fruit flavours easing gently into blackcurrant. Well balanced and well made. Firms nicely as it moves through the finish. Might be better again once it’s had a couple of years to mellow. Good value. Rating 89+ - Drink by 2021+, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (NOV/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright red with a purple hue on release.

Aroma

Lifted blackcurrant balances the fresh herb characters on the nose. A hint of eucalyptus is evident.

Palate

The palate has bright currant characters throughout. Spice and chocolate add to the complexity of the wine. The tannins are ripe and grainy and give the wine good structure.

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.
