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.
