Thorn Clarke Shotfire 2019 Barossa Shiraz
The 2019 vintage in the Barossa can be summed up with two key points; low yields and high quality some up the 2019 Barossa Vintage. It was rated 9/10 for Red wine.
How does this reflect on the Shotfire Shiraz 2019. It's big. It's dense. It needs time.
Inky dark in colour.
Dense blackberry and plum fruits with five spice, smoke and dark chocolate on the nose.
Rich and generous palate. Ripe black plum, smoky black pepper and liquorice in abundance. Well integrated and complex oak characters that will blossom over time. Plush and mouth filling, with long savoury tannins adding structure to the palate.
Destined to be a very long lived vintage. It will reward cellaring. Now it's an explosion vibrance. A fruit and spice amalgam.
It showcases all the quintessential traits of Barossa Shiraz in its youth and is destined to be one of the very best under this label.
