Thorn-Clarke is without doubt one of the most exciting Barossa brands to enter the market in recent times. 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. Together, they have four family owned vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valley.

Bright red with a purple hue on release.  Lifted blackcurrant balances the fresh herb characters on the nose. A hint of eucalyptus is evident. The palate has bright currant characters throughout. Spice and chocolate add to the complexity of the wine. The tannins are ripe and grainy and give the wine good structure.

With: Braised lamb ribs, apricot & cardamom.
