2015 Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Quartage Barossa Valley - 95 PTS - JH

halliday logo"A long established blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot that has often exceeded expectations, both with the quality of the estate grown fruit, the way the components are handled in the winery and the blending process. Everything about the wine defies the normal yawn that greets Barossa Valley Bordeaux blends with its bright mouthfeel and cedary fruit flavours."

2018 Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Quartage Barossa Valley - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"The 2018 Shotfire Quartage Red Blend is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot. Vaguely minty and floral on the nose, it offers up juicy cassis notes and hints of cedar and vanilla. It's a basic, easy-to-drink Cabernet blend, supple and forward, but with just enough tannic astringency on the finish to partner burgers and the like. - Joe Czerwinski"
