The 2009 Thorn Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz is full bodied, fruity wine, with nice aromas of yogurty blackberry, bilberry, oak, coconut, vanilla and green pepper. It has a nice structure with refined tannins (decant for 1 hour) and medium to long finish. Its ready to drink now or hold for short term. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - good value and a recommended buy. Tasted Oct/11.

Big aromas of lush blackberry, blueberry, earth, mint and pepper. Dark fruit flavours, dark chocolate, turning a bit spicy at mid-palate. Full-bodied, chewy. Dry. Ageable, but ready to drink now. Well-made Shiraz, but is bit too bitter for my taste. Tasted Oct/2011 and better on 2nd day.
