Thorn-Clarke Sandpiper Pinot Noir Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Thorn-Clarke’s Pinot Chardonnay, made with classic grapes seen in Champagne, is an elegant fruit-forward style of bubbly that is dry and fresh. Delicate apple and citrus fruits with a little toasty complexity for interest. The perfect quaffer for a backyard shin-dig.

Winemaker's Notes

The wine is a light straw with a hint of pink. The nose has lifted strawberries with complex creamy characters. The palate is medium bodied with rich, sweet roasted nuts and biscuit characters. Combined with the great sugar-acid balance this wine finishes long with clean toasty flavours.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday says
Quite right fruit, with citrus and hints of wild berries; simple but clean and attractive.

Peter Forrestal says
A pleasant bubbly from a Barossa label which is not a specialist sparkling wine producer: there's a faint pink tinge, it's fresh and fruity, light-bodied, tight and lean.
Quaff 2009
Spicy red berry bouquet and soft, rich, red fruit palate with nice biscuity complexity.
