Thorn Clarke Williams Randell Barossa Shiraz

A micro selection of the finest barrels, released only in the greatest vintage, William Randell is one of Australia's benchmark Shiraz.

Lifted blackberry and cassis on the nose. This is a rich and brooding wine with layers of dark chocolate, plum, spiced fruit cake and stylish mocha oak notes. A wonderful wine with a long finish.

92 Points - Josh Reynolds, Vineous

(40 percent new American oak) Youthful purple. Powerful, deep-pitched black and blue fruit, licorice, vanilla and violet scents are sharpened by mineral and peppery spice nuances. Broad, sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering concentrated boysenberry and cherry compote flavors accented by allspice and coconut notes. Shows surprising energy for its heft and finishes with impressive energy and supple tannins that are quickly absorbed by the lush dark fruit.

95 Points / Gold Ribbon – Bob Campbell 2016, NZ

‘A rich, textural wine with dense plum, dark berry, blackcurrant and chocolate/mocha flavours. Impressive concentration with obvious cellaring potential.’

94 Points – Wine Business Monthly, August 2016

This isn't a wallflower when it comes to potency of fruit and mesh of oak, but it sure does give the drinker a good slug of Barossa Valley Shiraz at its most powerful. Thick, syrupy textured with licks of mocha mint among plummy fruit and creamy texture. Big done very well.

The Wine Front

93 Points – Barossa Valley Shiraz, done up to the nines. The oak is fairly obvious here but then, so too is the depth of fruit. We’re talking bold, deep blackberry and saturated plum here, with tips of mint and then sweeps of coffee-cream, chocolatey oak. It struts through the palate, all cuddly and warm.

92 Points – Huon Hooke 2016

Deep Red/purple hue and a chocolaty, smoky, earthy oak driven aroma. The barrels dominate, and the oak seems to be sitting apart from the wine. It’s a big, dense, rich wine, with dominant vanilla and cholate oak-derived flavours. The tannins are drying but smooth.
