2015 Ron Thorn Shiraz, Thorn Clarke, Barossa Valley
Ron Thorn Shiraz is made from Thorn-Clarke's best fruit and is produced only in exceptional years; named in honour of owner Cheryl Clarke's father.
Inky, deep red-purple. A rich, dark fruit nose with lifted liquorice and lashings of chocolate-y oak. The palate is dense and powerful with mouth filling presence. Intense dark fruits and cocoa with hints of smoke and spice. The tannins are firm and powerful but integrate well with the ripe fruit and give the palate impressive presence.
