Shotfire Thorn Clark Quartage Barossa 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red. The nose has some complex developed notes with roasted meats, aniseed and red capsicum. The palate is rich, full bodied and enticing with plums, roasted capsicum and vegemite notes. The maturation in French oak has led to some subtle spice lift and a lovely roundness and richness on the palate. There are some fleshy tannins which will make this wine an ideal match to rich dishes, especially red meats or game. The flavours linger in the mouth.

Big, round and fleshy, this is a great wine for under $20. Plums, Indian spices and herbs on the nose. The palette is lush with jammy black fruits, cinnamon and a hint of eucalyptus. Everything is leveled out with nice acidity.

A delicious wine that pairs excellently with a nice charcuterie plate, and is a great opening act for an evening with guests. We buy this wine by the case, and use it as our "go to" wine when friends are coming over. The quartage is a blend of Cab Sav, Malbec, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Shiraz. Wine Spectator gave it 90 points, and says drink anytime between now and 2015

Kräftige dunkelrote Farbe mit violetten Reflexen. Aromen nach reifen, roten und dunklen Früchten, wie Erdbeeren und Heidelbeeren. Im Gaumen fleischig und voll mit Aromen reifer Himbeeren, Zedernholz, Cassis und feinen Caramelnoten. Ein vollmundiger und geschmeidiger Bordeaux-Blend mit einem langen Abgang.
