Thorn Clarke

Established by David and Cheryl Clarke (neThorn),and son Sam,Thorn-Clarke is one of the largest family-owned estate-based businesses in the Barossa. Their winery is close to the border between the Barossa and Eden valleys, and three of their four vineyards in the Eden Valley: the Mt Crawford Vineyard is at the southern end of the Eden Valley, while the Milton Park and Sandpiper vineyards are further north in the Eden Valley. The fourth vineyard is at St Kitts,in the northern end of the Barossa Ranges, established when no other vignerons had ventured onto what was hitherto considered unsuitable soil. In all four vineyards careful soil mapping has resulted in matching of variety and site, with all of the major varieties represented. The quality of grapes retained for the Thorn-Clarke label has resulted in a succession of trophy and gold medal-winning wines at very competitive prices. The arrival of the highly credentialled Helen McCarthy as winemaker in 2011 means wine quality continues in safe hands. ( James Halliday)
