Thorn Clarke Shotfire Barossa Shiraz

From Mount Crawford’s vineyard at the southern extreme of Eden Valley, this the finest vintage for Thorn Clarke Shiraz yet, a $20 benchmark of Barossa shiraz, for its fruit definition and density, layered with signature black plum and blueberry fruits, black pastilles and liquorice of considerable depth and precision. A firm tannin structure is finely textured, providing impressive medium-term potential. $18 at Discount Wines, No Frills Wine, Aussie Wines and Wine List Australia.
