Named Thorn Clarke after the owners David Clarke and Cheryl Thorn. They’re now both married (to each other) but what’s with the Sandpiper?
It’s actually northing to do with Cheryl or a food match, the Sandpiper is a migratory bird that visits the winery. Yes, that does beg another question!
Year in, year out this label delivers the goods and this latest 2018 release has done it again…
Gold medal, 95/100 (Barossa Wine Show 2020)
91/100 + Special Value (James Halliday Wine Companion)
“Deluxe treatment for a $20 wine. It is medium-bodied, and over-delivers on its price”
4 Stars (Cuisine magazine)
“The palate is full of all things Barossa; savory and dense with juicy plums and ripe dark berries and a hint of clove, oak spice and soft rounded tannins. A superb fireside wine to sit with and linger.”
We do know one thing though – this fine specimen sure has seen enough medals in its time to justify why lovers of Barossa Shiraz flock to it every year. Medium to full bodied with rich, ripe berry fruit flavours – it’s a must for all bird lovers.
