Thorn-Clarke Shiraz Barossa Valley William Randell 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red / purple colour, the nose is very lifted and spicy with layers of dark chocolate, mocha and Christmas cake. The palate is rich and full bodied with blackberries, cassis and mocha oak notes which characterise this intensely flavoured Barossa Valley Shiraz. The wine is mouth filling and satisfying with its creamy, unctuous texture and packs in fine silky tannins. The wine has great length with lingering flavours of blackberry fruit and chocolate oak. ‘This represents the best release under the William Randell label to date’ Derek Fitzgerald - Winemaker

This wine shows the great potential of Australian Shiraz. The nose is quite aromatic with chocolate, holiday spices, and cassis. The pallette is rich and unctuous with mocha, blackberry, baking chocolate and pepper. Very long finish. Silky smooth tannins.
