Thorn-Clarke Shotfire 2016 is a robust Barossa red wine, a full-bodied Shiraz with layers of dark fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla and cedar spice. Shiraz grapes for this Australian red were cool fermented and the wine was aged in both American and French hogshead barrels for 14 to 16 months. This Australian red wine is made by sixth generation Goddard family.

Shiraz food pairings: venison filet mignon with red wine gravy, grilled bison strip steaks, goose and duck sausage cassoulet.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
