THE BRIEF
  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • EXPERT REVIEWS
  • From the multi-award winning Thorn-Clarke stable comes this monster red with a multitude of flavours that fuse together flawlessly. It’s a melting pot of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot and merlot, each bringing a unique flavour profile to the table.

  • The fruit was harvested at night. Fermentation was carried out in a variety of small capacity fermenters. After pressing the parcels were filled to French oak (12 months) for maturation. The wine was racked after six months and the parcels were blended to form the final wine.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    An explosive mix of blackcurrant, mulberry, sweet ripe cherries, cloves and dusty dried herbs with an oak chaser. It’s juicy and well-balanced with just the right amount of tannin. Perfect for hearty winter dishes.

  • The Thorn-Clarke family are known as sixth generation wine region employees, establishing a winery to solidify their presence in the region. Wines are styled for premium consumption, with vineyards being paramount in the winemaking process. Grape growing is the primary activity, wine producing a by product of the years of experience with the vines. Thorn Clarke is a Barossa Valley based winery that sources fruit from premier vineyards in the Eden Valley and Barossa Valley. The individual vineyard sites are Mount Crawford and Milton Park (Eden) and Kabininge and St Kitts (Barossa). Whites are left to Eden Valley, reds to Barossa Valley. Modern winemaking techniques are applied in their updated and modern winery. Technology assists in the production of cleanly made, volume brands that convey their regionality but ultimately are style for easy, early consumption.
