Prime Eden Valley Riesling that is dripping with gold medals and high scores.

That's a quick summary, but the appeal here goes deeper than that. It's one seriously intense white wine, with impressive levels of acidity and a finish that just goes on and on.

Expert Reviews

94 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitIt is fabulously fragrant on the nose showing nectarine, lemon pith, jasmine and lime zest characters. The palate is concentrated and refined, delivering elegant fruit intensity and excellent focus, brilliantly supported by mouth-watering acidity. Wonderfully poised and composed.
92 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionThe complex bouquet has notes of talc and musk interwoven with potent citrus aromas. Lime and lemon assert themselves on the palate, strengthened by firm acidity.

How was it made?

The 2018 growing season had all the hallmarks of a classic vintage. Consistent warm temperatures produced perfect conditions for our Eden Valley whites to ripen. This along with good winter rains and a dry harvest period resulted in vibrant varietal flavours, excellent natural acidity and a long balanced finish.

Who made it?

The Thorn-Clarke family are known as sixth generation wine region employees, establishing a winery to solidify their presence in the region. Wines are styled for premium consumption, with vineyards being paramount in the winemaking process. Grape growing is the primary activity, wine producing a by product of the years of experience with the vines. Thorn Clarke is a Barossa Valley based winery that sources fruit from premier vineyards in the Eden Valley and Barossa Valley. The individual vineyard sites are Mount Crawford and Milton Park (Eden) and Kabininge and St Kitts (Barossa). Whites are left to Eden Valley, reds to Barossa Valley. Modern winemaking techniques are applied in their updated and modern winery. Technology assists in the production of cleanly made, volume brands that convey their regionality but ultimately are style for easy, early consumption.
