£45.50 per bottle

About this wine

Thorn-Clarke Ron Thorn Shiraz is made as a tribute to Cheryl Clarkes father, Ron – made from the best fruit and produced only in exceptional years.  The wine is given the benefit of 20 months of barrel maturation and 6 months in bottle prior to release.  The 2015 vintage has a rich, dark fruit nose with lifted liquorice and lashings of chocolatey oak whilst the palate is dense and powerful with a mouth filling presence of intense dark fruits and cocoa with hints of smoke and spice.  Powerful firm tannins integrate well with the ripe fruit and give the palate impressive presence.  A great example of the quality to be found in the Barossa.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
