The Wines of Thorn-Clarke!!

THORN-CLARKE PINOT GRIS $16.99

The colour is mid straw.
The nose is clean and vibrant showing honeysuckle and subtle honey notes.
The honeysuckle follows through on the palate with rockmelon undertones.
There is a lovely sweet fruit richness contrasted with a zingy acid finish.


THORN-CLARKE ESTATE SHIRAZ, MATARO VINEYARD $24.99
93 Points Wine &Spirits
"Peter Kelly makes this wine from a parcel in northern Barossa along Ebenezer Road, where the vines grown in sandy loam soils. This is a vibrant red with concentrated fresh boysenberry fruit and equally fresh tannins, mataro in all its primitive glory. The tannins bring dark notes of salty black beans and cumin spice, while the fruit cuts through with a prickle of acidity.
It’s a spicy, untamed red with a long horizon line of flavor."


THORN-CLARKE SHOTFIRE SHIRAZ, BAROSSA $16.99
Deep red with a slight purple hue on release. The wine has a rich mix of dark chocolate infused with coffee bean and black liquorice, then scents of tar, aniseed, raw (pure) soy and black olive on the nose. The palate is expansive, and yet balanced and finessed. An amalgam of dark berried flavors and textural sensations. The 100% new oak is completely absorbed, meshed with ripe tannins, completing a palate of impressive length and youthfulness.

THORN-CLARKE CABERNET, SHIRAZ, PETIT VERDOT $19.99
89 Points Vinous
"Brilliant violet. Aromas and flavors of cassis, cherry pit, dark chocolate and candied flowers, given spicy lift by a peppery nuance. Juicy and focused on the palate; a pungent herbal element builds as the wine opens up. Finishes on a spicy note, with good tenacity and dusty tannins lending shape and grip. - Josh Reynolds"

THORN-CLARKE *RESERVE * SHOTFIRE SHIRAZ BAROSSA $24.99
93 Points Wine & Spirits 
 "Growers in Barossa for six generations, the Thorn-Clarke family farms close to 600 acres of vines, providing the fruit for this sleek, black-fruited shiraz. It’s silky- smooth, with the concentration and density of flavor that takes the tannins toward blood, iron and sage. A deep, dark wine with pleasure to spare, this begins to show floral scents of roses, then detailed flavors of plums and strawberries after a day open to air. - Joshua Greene
