Thorn-Clarke ‘Shotfire’ ‘Quartage’ Barossa 2016

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 21-Oct-2018
Full, dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and well-packed with concentrated, ripe aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants along with black plums and nuances of redcurrants. The aromatics are refined and show intensity, unfolding subtle nutty oak. The aromatics grow in density with aeration. Full-bodied, the has deep and softly packed , concentrated flavours of ripe blackberries and blackcurrants with plums and notes of nutty, spicy oak. The fruit is harmoniously interwoven and balanced with the oak and supported by ine-grained flowery tannin extraction with integrated acidity. The flavours grow in richness to fill the mouth and carry to a concentrated, lingering, nuanced finish. This is a softly concentrated and densely packed, ripe Bordeaux-varietal blend with harmoniously integrated and balanced black fruits on a very fine-grained palate. Match with roasted red meats over the next 7-9 years. A blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 14% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot from the ‘St Kitts’, ‘Milton Park’ and ‘Kabininge’ vineyards, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in French oak. 18.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $28.00
