Thorn Clarke-Terra Barossa

The two families, Thorn and Clarke, have deep roots in South Australia. They produce several lines of wine: Milton Park, Terra Barossa, and Shotfire which fit several niches in the market. All are bold, full-bodied and robust examples of the grape varietals – a good reflection of the typically open and exuberant personality of the Aussie.
Shiraz Shiraz: Deep red color. The wine has deep and rich aromas with dark fruits, plums and spice with some good oak. There is very rich fruit on the palate with plums, blackberry and sweet spice from the oak. The palate is vibrant and young with a flavorsome viscous mouth feel which will develop complexity with time. There is some slightly chewy tannin which will soften with time and there is great length of fruit flavor.
Shotfire Ridge Shiraz Shotfire Ridge Shiraz: Deep red color, with a lifted and intense nose of blackberry fruit, sweet spice and dark chocolate. The palate is very rich and flavorsome with blackberry and plum fruit. In addition to the primary fruit characters there is plenty of complexity in this wine with spice and earthy notes. There is heaps of mouth filling flavor complemented by chalky tannins. There is great length of fruit as well.
