Shotfire Shiraz 2016, Thorn-Clarke

£16.95 per bottle

About this wine

Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Shiraz (the name a tribute to the mining history so prevalent in South Australia) is intense, balanced and shows great length on the palate.  Notes of rich and concentrated dark fruits, with charry oak and mocha on the nose are complimented by a palate of dense plum and mulberry with dark chocolate and savoury oak tannins. A full throttle, completely assured offering from Thorn-Clarke and a wine that really can only be from the Barossa Valley.

    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."
