Food Pairings for Thorn-Clarke Shiraz Barossa Valley Terra Barossa
Had a glass of this at a restaurant last night - very velvety mouthfeel, big and fruit-forward, soft tannins. Gorgeous dark purple-red color too. Loved everything about it except the price ($10 for a glass), but I know that was restaurant markup. For the prices quoted here, it's a great choice.
Good very drinkable. Bold and fruity with a very big jam component. This is definitely an Australian fruit blast. There's a little bit of spice on the mid-palate and the finish is pretty full. For meals, you need a big favor contrast - - think red meat, strong cheeses, onions.
Lots of plumb on the nose, full of ripe fruit and earthiness.
huge fruit on the nose and up front on the palate, fruit seems to get a little richer or darker mid palate. great big spicy, earthy finish, slightly tannic with an ever so slight bit of heat. one of the better less complex wines i've had.
Simple jammy yumminess, hard to beat at $14/liter.
I am enjoying a bottle right now. It is VERY fruity. It is also very affordable. The taste is very pleasing. It has a little spice -- but lots of licorice, plumb, and other fruit tastes. If you like big and bold you will love this one.
I bought 2 cases, It was very bitter at first. As the sediment falls out its is gets much better. If you open a bottle and take 1/2 galss out ant then store in frdge for two day it accelerates the process. It is 3, now but maybe a 4 or 5 later. The aroma of this wine is excellent.
External Reviews for Thorn-Clarke Shiraz Barossa Valley Terra Barossa
A tremendous creation from Thorn-Clarke, the Terra Barossa Cuvée is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It coats the mouth with loads of currant, blackberry, black cherry and sweet vanilla. Supple tannins keep the wine structured as the finish lingers on and on.
Supple, round and distinctive for its violet-tinged currant and dusky spice flavors, lingering effectively against refined tannins. Shiraz, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2013.
The 2002 Terra Barossa Cuvee (51% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a ripe, tasty concoction offering abundant amounts of herb-tinged red and black fruits, earth, spice box. With fine texture as well as excellent purity, it is a bargain-priced Australian red to enjoy now and over the next 1-2 years.
Ruby-red. Vibrant blackberry- and cassis-scented nose, with complicating spicecake and licorice notes. Deep, sweet and chewy, with impressively energetic red and dark berry flavors gently lifted by fresh acidity. Softly tannic on the finish, which is nicely juicy and focused for this price point. This offers excellent value.
The inky/ruby/purple-colored 2003 Terra-Barossa Cuvee, an exuberant blend of 60% Shiraz, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Mourvedre, possesses good structure, density, and loads of blackberry and cassis fruit. Some firm tannin still needs to be resolved in the finish, but this offering reveals a Bordeaux-like structure. Give it another 6-12 months of bottle age, and drink it over the next 4-5 years
The outstanding 2004 Cuvee Terra Barossa, a blend of 54% Shiraz, 30% Petit Verdot, and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in oak for 12 months, is a fabulous bargain. Blueberry, blackberry, violet, and sweet pain grille characteristics soar from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-tinged wine. Full-bodied richness, density, and purity suggest this terrific red should age well for 5-7 years.
Deep red colour. The wine is deep and rich smelling with dark fruits, plums and spice with some good oak. There is very rich fruit on the palate with plums, blackberry and sweet spice from the oak. The palate is vibrant and young with a flavoursome viscous mouthfeel which will develop complexity with time. There are some slightly chewy tannins which will soften with time and there is great length of fruit flavour.
