Winemaker Notes

On release the wine is deep red with purple hues. The wine has a lifted nose of clean blackberry fruit and dried plums accompanied by dark chocolate. The palate displays sweet fruit characters dominated by ripe plums and dark chocolate. The wine is full bodied with obvious fine tannin structure and oak maturation adding texture and complexity to the wine. The wine has long persistence.

Wine Spectator
Supple, polished and expressive, with black olive—scented blackberry and cumin flavors, finishing with a creamy texture. Drink now through 2019.

Thorn-Clarke, Australia
Thorn-Clarke  Winery Image
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.
