Thorn Clarke Quartage Shotfire 2018

Product description
The Thorn-Clarke family already has a long history in the Barossa, with six generations of involvement in the region's world-famous wine industry. The name Thorn-Clarke derives literally from the relationship between two long-time Barossa families. The winery owners are David and Cheryl Clarke (nee Thorn), and their son Sam is the winery's manager. Cheryl's brother, David Thorn, manages the Mount Crawford and Kabininge vineyards for Thorn-Clarke Wines. Her father, Ron Thorn, has one of the oldest Shiraz vineyards in Australia and possibly the world on the Thorn family property 'Clifton' outside of Angaston. Earliest records show this old vineyard was in existence in 1854.

92 Points - James Suckling

This is rich and has some earthy elements with dried red fruit, leaves, blackcurrants, gentle spice and blueberries. The palate has a very concentrated feel with a breadth of flavour and then some longer-driving fruit. Blueberries and blackberries. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
