    Winemaker Notes

    Ripe plum and mulberry on the nose showing typical Barossa Shiraz characters. New oak is integrated and rounds off the palate, finishing with vanilla and chocolate under tones. A big warm Barossa wine that will cellar well.

    Winemaking: Crushed and de-stemmed into closed fermenters. Inoculated 1 day after crushing with yeast of French origin. Maximum fermentation temperature 29°C - 32°C. Pumped over 2 x per day, incorporating oxygen. Free run removed from skins. Pressings kept separate from free run, then fined and re-blended back to the free run. The wine was then inoculated for malolactic fermentation.

    "An outrageous value, the 5,000-case cuvee of 2002 Shiraz Milton Park is an opaque purple-colored effort displaying loads of peppery, licorice-infused blackberry and cassis fruit. It is a big, succulent, South Australian fruit bomb to enjoy over the next 2-3 years."- Wine Advocate

    Thorn-Clarke, , Australia
    Thorn-Clarke
    The Thorn-Clarke family already has a long history in the Barossa - 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 manager of the winery. 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.

    Husband and wife, David and Cheryl Clarke both have deep family roots in the Barossa. Cheryl Clarke's family, the Thorn's, have been grape growers in the Barossa since the 1870's.

    David Clarke's family were pioneers in the Barossa as well but most famously in the mining of gold from the Barossa Goldfields. One of his ancestors was James Goddard who was the responsible for opening the Lady Alice gold mine in the Barossa goldfields and which was the largest gold mine in South Australia at the time. It has been David's love of the wine industry that saw the planting of the Kabininge vineyard outside of Tanunda in 1987. The planting of the Kabininge vineyard represented the start of a deeper involvement by the family in the Barossa wine industry.
