Tasting Notes

"As is always the case, this is no shrinking violet, but it is no behemoth either; red and dark fruits, earth, spice, sap and toasty oak are on display; the full-bodied palate is lithe, sophisticated and exceptionally long; flagships can often be a caricature of a producer, but in this case it is the elegance and the power combining seamlessly."

JIM BARRY

Jim Barry, named after the eponymous founding wine maker, is one of the stalwart wineries of the Clare Valley. In 1959 the late Jim Barry purchased land near the township of Clare, replanting much of it to vineyard. Under the leadership of managing director Peter Barry and sons Tom and Sam Barry the brand has gone from strength to strength. Jim Barry is best known for its flagship Shiraz The Armagh, but also produces an impressive range of wines including Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyard holdings in the Clare Valley and Coonawarra.
