Thorn-Clarke `Shotfire` Quartage 2014 (6 x 750mL), Barossa, SA.

$22.99 per Bottle
$137.94 per pack

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.

Spring rainfall was well below average with several days reaching 30°C. The growing season had even temperatures and little rainfall. Ripening was slow and steady leading to the development of good tannin structure and fruit characters.

Expert Reviews

93 Points – Cabernet blend, not to be messed with. It’s stern, tannic and warm. Something I like about this wine is that it rolls out the punches and lets you deal with them; it’s an unapologetic style of wine. It’s beefy, curranty, toasty and substantial, with dusty/leafy cabernet characters as afterthoughts. Just watch those tannin unfurls. Just feel the grunt of it. The press release accompanying the wine describes it as “floral and elegant”. That’s about the last way I’d describe it. - Wine Front

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red with brick hues.

Aroma

Lifted berry, cinnamon, nutmeg and dried oregano aromas

Palate

The palate doesn’t disappoint with a multitude of flavours melding together to form the wines flavour, starting with red berries and anise. On release the tannins for the fruit and oak are firm and long, the generosity of fruit is balanced by an elegance provided by natural acidity. The wine is full bodied and complete.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

After 20 years in vineyard development, Thorn-Clarke is without doubt one of the most exciting Barossa Valley brands to enter the market in some time. The name Thorn-Clarke derives literally from the relationship between two long time Barossa Families. Founders David and Cheryl Clarke (Nee Thorn) work with their son and daughter, Sam and Nicole, in this family-orientated business. With four family-owned vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valley, Thorn-Clarke produces wines across three ranges (Sandpiper, Shotfire and William Randell). All represent exceptional value and display true regional character. This label showcases the best that the Barossa has to offer.
