Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE: Deep red in colour with vibrant purple hues. AROMA: The nose is plentiful with classic Cabernet characters of blackcurrant, plums and a hint of tomato leaf. PALATE: The palate is driven by blackberry, satsuma plums and anise. The tannins are fine yet firm and there is a powerful fruit density. All together this creates a wine with great drive and length.

Winemakers Note

The 2019 vintage in the Barossa can be summed up with two key points; low yields and high quality. Winter in 2018 was extremely dry and with high winds, frost and rain at flowering the Thorn-Clarke vineyards had a lot to contend with. As a result the vines had a very small amount of bunches and small amount of berries per bunch. Low yield though lead to concentration of varietal characters in the bunches and the berries produced this year were intense in fragrance, flavour and colour. Best of all they have an amazing balance. T
