Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2019


47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot & 10% Petit Verdot


One of our standout tastings in 2019 was the Thorn Clarke and this was voted as one of the top wines of the night. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot & Merlot, this is a dark inky red with black fruit flavours with a good input of oak. Nicely weighty and dense on the palate. 


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"This traditional blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot & Malbec boast a deep inky red – purple colour. Aromas of freshly crushed peppercorns, roasted capsicum & blackcurrant fill the glass. On the palate there is a generosity of fruit. The notes of dark cacoa and smokey bacon intertwined with velvety tannins lead to a complex finish."


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"It is sweetly fruited and fabulously fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, blueberry jam, vanilla, roasted nut and mixed spice characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is plump and fleshy. It is generous and flavoursome with plenty of delectable flavours, finishing long and satisfying."


91/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2016 Vintage)
"A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot and merlot. Elegant red wine with dark berry, cherry and spicy oak flavours. A fine-boned wine with good underlying power. It offers value at this price."


90/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, May 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Thorn Clarke’s “Bordeaux blend” is one of the more reliable performers on the Australian red wine landscape. First impressions are good. It’s a bold, substantial wine, loaded with both fruit and oak. There’s lot of tannin too, giving the wine a real presence in the mouth. First sip and I thought we were really onto something here. Subsequent sips saw the oak creep further and further forward, so that it came to be the dominant impression. The aftertaste is particularly resiny and planky. If you like big oak, big tannin and big fruit, more or less in that order, then we have a real contender here. I still think it has a lot to offer but it’s a wine you buy/drink as much on style as you do on quality."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Raymond Chan, October 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Full, dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim.  The nose is softly full and well-packed with concentrated, ripe aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants along with black plums and nuances of redcurrants.  The aromatics are refined and show intensity, unfolding subtle nutty oak.  The aromatics grow in density with aeration.  Full-bodied, the has deep and softly packed , concentrated flavours of ripe blackberries and blackcurrants with plums and notes of nutty, spicy oak.  The fruit is harmoniously interwoven and balanced with the oak and supported by ine-grained flowery tannin extraction with integrated acidity.  The flavours grow in richness to fill the mouth and carry to a concentrated, lingering, nuanced finish.  This is a softly concentrated and densely packed, ripe Bordeaux-varietal blend with harmoniously integrated and balanced black fruits on a very fine-grained palate."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
