A blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot.
The Thorn Clarke Shotfire Quartage 2018 features aromas of blackberries, satsuma plum and anise. The palate features plush tannins are accompanied by rich notes of cassis and blackcurrant, together they produce a wine with lavish density, complexity and length.
"47/23/20/10 % cabernet sauvignon/malbec/cabernet franc/merlot, matured 12 months in French oak barrels. A characterful and age-worthy blend in which malbec and cabernet franc play more than a support role, defining not only fragrant lift and savoury complexity but deepening a fine, dry tannin profile. The crunchy redcurrants of cabernet uphold a bright, tangy core of freshness and integrity, holding long through an even and enduring finish. One for the cellar. Drink by 2033."
