Thorn Clarke are well-known for producing high-quality Barossa wines and their Shotfire Shiraz has a long history of awards and trophies so we jumped at the opportunity to get this little beauty in. Aged in French & American Oak for 14-16 months, this wine is rich, ripe and loaded with flavours in the dark berry spectrum. Absolutely delicious.
The winery writes "Inky red in colour with purple hues at the rim. Dense blackberry and plum fruits dominate the nose with five spice, smoke and dark chocolate showing through. A rich and generous palate showcases all the quintessential traits of Barossa Shiraz. Ripe black plum, black pepper and liquorice in abundance, supported by integrated and complex oak characters. The wine is plush and mouth filling, with long savoury tannins adding structure to the palate. Destined to be a long- lived vintage that will reward cellaring but can also be enjoyed now for it’s vibrant fruit expression."
