On release the wine has a deep purple colour with a red hue. The wine has a lifted nose of clean blackberry fruit accompanied by mocha and spice. The palate displays sweet fruit characters dominated by blackberry and plum, complimented by cinnamon, clove and nutmeg characters. The wine is full bodied with natural tannin and oak maturation adding texture and complexity to the wine.
Named as a tribute to the mining history of both the region and the Clark family who pioneers in gold mining.
Made from the grapes of three fantastic sites in the Barossa valley this 100% Shiraz is aged in American Oak (40% new) hogsheads for fourteen months.
Full bodied and bursting with Barossa Valley character it is full of bramble fruit and sweet spice with lovely cassis tones and fantastic structure and length.
Will drink beautifully until 2023.
