Critical Acclaim

Australian Wine Companion

It is nigh on certain that most - possibly all - of this estate-grown wine comes from the Eden Valley where three of the Clarke family vineyards are situated. Strong purple-crimson. This is yet another Thorn-Clarke wine with a glittering show record earned by prior vintages. It is an extremely powerful wine, laden with black fruits and firm tannins, and should prosper in bottle right up to its 20th birthday.

Polished, velvety and spicy, this is generous with its tobacco and loamy earth elements that surround a lithe core of dark berry and herb. Lingers softly. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Shiraz. Drink now through 2015. 10,000 cases made.
