Pale straw in colour. Notes of Williams pear, fresh cut lemon and lime zest fill the glass. The mid weighted palate is driven by further notes of fresh pears and cinnamon spice. The chalky citrus acid leads to a crisp finish.
The 2020 vintage in the Barossa can be summed up with two key points; low yields and high quality. Winter in 2018 was extremely dry and with high winds, frost and rain at flowering the Thorn-Clarke vineyards had a lot to contend with. As a result the vines had a very small amount of bunches and small amount of berries per bunch. Low yield though led to concentration of varietal characters in the bunches and the berries produced this year were intense in fragrance & flavour.
Best of all they have an amazing balance. Truly 2019 will sit alongside the greatest vintages the Barossa has seen this century. Crushed, de-stemmed and then pressed using a membrane press. Pressings were not used and ferment commenced using French yeast at 12-15 degrees celcius.The ferment was kept slow and cool to retain all the natural varietal flavours and aromatic qualities. The wine was racked, filtered and then bottled soon afterwards so the wine was a true expression of the grape/terroir from which it was made.
