Expert Reviews

Wine of the Week – Winsor Dobbin

You don't find many chardonnays this stylish for under $20 a bottle. This is razor-sharp on trend with cool-climate fruit from the Eden Valley producing a wine that has plenty of flavour but is also refined and delicate. It's all about the quality fruit with citrus notes and white stone fruit flavours combining impressively with a small percentage of French oak. Lees contact has added some texture. There is everything you'd want in a modern Aussie chardonnay here; it's well worth snapping up a case for Christmas.

16.5/20 – Raymond Chan

Bright, very pale straw colour, near colourless. The nose is elegant and slender in proportion with a fresh heart of white and yellow stone fruits along with nuances of citrus fruit interwoven with some nutty oak. This is steely and refreshing in expression. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and gently fresh with restrained flavours of white and yellow stone fruits, citrus fruit and a little nutty oak. The mouthfeel is brisk and fresh with crisp acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line with moderate drive and a light finish. This is an elegant, gently refreshing Chardonnay with light flavours and fresh acidity. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2-3 years. ‘Mount Crawford’ Eden Valley fruit fermented in stainless-steel with 20% in new French oak to 12.0% alc., the wine aged 4 months in barrel with batonnage, but avoiding MLF.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2018 Sandpiper Chardonnay is pale straw in colour with a vibrant green hue at the edge. The nose displays white peach, kiwi and citrus fruits and are backed up by some subtle spice. The palate follows with a generosity of fruit matched with refined French oak and delicate acidity. Altogether, this wine shows great texture, balance and length.

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.
