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 their vineyards.
The Shotfire range immortilises the Shotfirer’s hazardous job of setting and lighting the charges in the mines.

Champing at the bit to show off its sweet, jubey fruit but chains of herb-shot tannin keep the class in order. There is no doubting this is a beautiful wine to drink. It sits on the cusp of jamminess, all jellied and blackberried, its hints of raspberry and mint simply ramping the deliciousness higher. Value, what value.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red with purple hues.
Lifted nose of clean blackberry fruit and dried plums accompanied by dark chocolate.
Sweet fruit characters dominated by ripe plums and dark chocolate. Full bodied wine with obvious fine tannin structure and oak maturation adding texture and complexity. Long persistence.
