Product Description

Thorn Clarke William Randell Cabernet is made from 100 percent Cabernet

Deep red in colour. The nose is lifted and expressive with lovely Christmas cake and mint characters along with black olives and tobacco leaf adding complexity. The palate is medium to full bodied with blueberry and hints of cassis as the primary fruit flavours. The palate has great poise with the vibrant fruit, spicy French oak and fine tannin structure all wonderfully balanced, and the wine finishes with great length of fruit.


Review:

GOLD MEDAL
- International Wine & Spirits Competition 2017

"The 2015 William Randell Cabernet Sauvignon is a single-vineyard, Eden Valley bottling with plenty of intensity and varietal character. Mint and cassis notes dominate, but there's a healthy portion of new French oak that shows as well, adding lovely notes of baking spices and vanilla. Full-bodied and velvety in texture, it still shows enough delineation and length to please purists. - Joe Czerwinski"

Winery: Thorn Clarke - William Randell

The Thorn Clarke William Randell Estate
The winery owners are David and Cheryl Clarke (born Thorn) and their son Sam is the manager of the winery. The Thorn-Clarke family has a long history in the Barossa - six generations of involvement in the region's world famous wine industry. The Thorns have been grape growers in the Barossa since the 1870's. David Clarke's passion for the wine industry lead to the planting of the Kabininge vineyard outside of Tanunda in 1987, which represents the start of a deeper involvement by the family in the Barossa wine industry.

The Thorn Clarke William Randell Vineyards
William Randell is sourced from Thorn-Clarke's 33 hectare Kabininge vineyard (81.51 acres) is true Barossa Valley floor terroir. This is the oldest of their 100% family-owned vineyards and is situated in the heart of one of the great wine regions of the world - the Barossa Valley. Kabininge is planted predominantly to Shiraz - the variety for which the Barossa Valley is best known - supported by smaller plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. At just 270 metres above sea level and located on dark grey to dark brown carbonaceous soils (known as Bay of Biscay soil) red winegrapes ripen easily here. By monitoring soil moisture levels to limit yield and berry size, we can achieve exceptional red wines with superb varietal flavor and concentration.
