The Details

In a Nutshell

The Shotfire range immortilises the Clarke’s ancestry in the Barossa goldfields and the Shotfirer’s hazardous job of setting and lighting the charges in the mines.

Tasting Notes

Deep red in colour with brick hues at the edge. Lifted blackcurrant and violet aromas on the nose with notes of dark chocolate, spice and eucalyptus. The palate starts with plush blackberries and anise, continuing with well-integrated tannin with cherry and plum notes. Refined oak and generous fruit lead to great persistence on the finish.

Production Notes

The fruit was harvested at night. Fermentation was carried out in a variety of small capacity fermenters. After pressing the parcels were filled to French oak for 12 months’ maturation. The wine was racked after six months and the parcels were blended to form the final wine.
