Thorn-Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot 2010, Barossa Valley, SA

2013-05-12 15.50.07

Intense purple ruby colour. A blend of shiraz (69), cabernet sauvignon (21) and petit verdot (10) from multiple vineyards across the Barossa. Matured for 12 months in American and French oak. Intense ruby purple colour. A youthful, plush nose of weighty plum and berry fruit, mingled with lifted florals and pencil shavings. A dry, full-bodied wine with high acidity brought out by fleshly fruit flavours. Spiced, candied plum flavours with blackcurrants and a hint of anise. 13.5% alc. Soft powdery tannins linger on the finish. Not bad for $18. Drink now – 2017. 89/100. Have this with lamb roast.
