Thorn Clarke Single Vineyard Grenache
Thorn Clarke
Australia - South Australia - Barossa Valley

The Single Vineyard Selection range focuses on single site, small batch wines, highlighting the true characteristics of each individual variety. Each block is hand selected by the winemaker and viticulturist each year, choosing the wines that best reflect the strengths of each individual vintage.

The vines sit in good sandy soils nestled below the ranges on the eastern side of the Barossa, enjoying cooling evening, gully winds and a temperature climate.

The wine is ruby in color with purple hues. Brimming with bright fruit notes of wild strawberries & cherry and backed up by subtle spice of white pepper. On the palate, the fruit continues with further notes of raspberries and plum with a hint of French oak. A juicy medium bodied red that has a delicate and complex finish.
