Thorn-Clarke Milton Park Shiraz 2002
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
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.
