Cool Woods is a brand made by Thorn Clarke from their estate vineyards as well as fruit from around South Australia. You can trace both the Thorn and Clarke family well back into the history of the Barossa. It has only been since 2001 that they have released wine under their united family name. I remember tasting them and was suitably impressed and am happy to see they are still producing lovely wines 18 years late. They have 270 hectares of vineyard spread across four sites in the Barossa and Eden Valley. This includes the Thorn family’s ‘Clifton’ property just outside of Angaston, which goes back to 1854.
One of the major wine regions of Australia. Known for making great Shiraz by any standard as well as Grenache, Mataro, Semillon and much more. There has been a lot of work finding the sub-regions that excel for each style and variety planted.
The noble variety of Bordeaux’s left bank. Firm tannins, a streak of acidity and punctuated by flavours of cassis, violets, spice and leather. The best examples can age for the long-term. Often blending with Merlot, Cabernet Franc or Shiraz will fix the hole Cabernet has in its middle palate.
