The Sandpiper range is named after the migratory bird which visits the Thorn-Clarke vineyards annually from the northern hemisphere - something of a reminder of the tenacity and commitment which is required for long term viticulture.

Expert Reviews

New Thorn-Clarke winemaker Helen McCarthy, a rising talent poached from Taylor’s, is showing a deft touch even with entry level wines such as this. Midway in style between the complexity of pinot gris and the freshness of pinot grigio, this is a quite delightful drink for the price, full flavoured with citrus and poached pear notes but at the same time very crisp and clean. Excellent drinkability and value.2012 Winsor Dobbin, The Grape Hunter (AUG/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes


The colour is mid straw.


The nose shows lifted fruits with notes of pear and blossom.


The palate is medium bodied with Nashi pears and apple puree. There is a lovely richness and viscosity which can be attributed to the time on yeast. The wine finishes clean and crisp with great length of fruit.

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.
