Region: Barossa Valley SA
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.
The Sandpiper range is named after the migratory bird which visits the Thorn-Clarke vineyards annually from the northern hemisphere. Exceptional value for money given the quality of this wine.
This luscious red from the award winning Thorn-Clarke winery is abundant in juicy plum flavours. Subtle spice and herbal notes add depth and complexity to the evenly balanced, mouth-filling palate. Silky tannins and a long acid line take you all the way to the end. A soft, fruity drop with teasing chocolate mint hints that will make a respectable offering for any dinner table.
