When the Clarke forbears discovered gold in 1870 at the Lady Alice mine in the Barossa goldfields, so began a family dynasty intrigued by geology. A fine legacy that is reflected today in the terroir of our vineyards. The Shotfire range immortilises the Shotfirer’s hazardous job of setting and lighting the charges in the mines.

Expert Reviews

Mid-palate is sweet and jubey but strong arms of tannin keep it in line. Blackcurrant, mint, violet and a dusting of herbs. Can be consumed now as a hearty-but-muscular wine, but time won't be unkind. Rating 93 - Drink by 2028, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varieties

45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 21% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot


Deep red with brick hues.


Lifted berry, cinnamon, nutmeg and dried oregano aromas.


The palate doesn’t disappoint with a multitude of flavours melding together to form the wines flavour, starting with red berries and anise. On release the tannins from the fruit and oak are firm and long, the generosity of fruit is balanced by an elegance provided by natural acidity. The wine is full bodied and complete.

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.
