Tasting Notes

From the winery: "The name Thorn-Clarke derives literally from the relationship of two long time Barossa families. Founders David and Cheryl Clarke (nee Thorn) work with their son Sam in this family orientated business. The Thorn-Clarke family has a long history in the Barossa – six generations of involvement in the regions world famous wine industry. Today the Clarke family is one of the Barossa Valley's largest grape growers and winemakers with 270 hectares of vineyard spread across four sites in the Barossa and Eden Valley. Having grown grapes and sold the fruit to other wineries for a number of years the Thorn-Clarke name is relatively young as a winemaker with the release of the first wines in 2001." Wine Description: 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 for 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.

    What a great take on an under $20 Cab blend from a great Aussie producer! A blend of Cab Sauv (36%), Cab Franc (28%), Petit Verdot (20%), Merlot (16%), this wine comes from a family that's been in the Barossa since 1870. They are one of the largest vineyard land owners in the area, but have only been producing their own wines since 2001. Thank goodness they did decide to start their own label. This wine has great body and structure and rich, but not plush fruit. Well balanced and a great alternative to a Bordeaux for a steak dinner. Don't miss this one!
