Drink it now or cellar it for up to 15 years. No need to decant it, but best to open it half an hour before service.

Thorn-Clarke is a family-owned winery located in Barossa, South Australia, and founded by David and Cheryl Clarke. The estate cultivates 240 hectares on four vineyards: St Kitts & Truro and Kabininge in the Barossa, as well as Mt Crawford and Milton Park in the Eden Valley. A number of varieties grow in their vineyards including the popular Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The diversity of microclimates typical of these areas creates a portfolio of wines with various terroirs and styles on display.

Their flagship wine is the Ron Thorn, a single vineyard Shiraz produced only in exceptional vintages, dedicated to a particularly hard-working family ancestor. Their William Randell Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon were also created in honor of the pioneer of the family who emigrated to Australia in 1837, launching a family business that now counts six generations of winemakers.

Intense, deep and powerful, the Ron Thorn Shiraz displays rich aromas of dark fruit, ripe plum, and hints of coffee and chocolate. The palate is filled with ripe plum and mulberry flavors followed by dark chocolate and savory oak tannins. It has good balance and persistence. This is the perfect wine for beef brisket.
