2013 (96 PARKER POINTS) “It's dense, concentrated and full-bodied, with supple (almost creamy) tannins that conceal much of their power in their ripeness, without the wine ever seeming too ripe, too oaky or too fruity. Those tannins linger and turn to silk on the long finish, picking up lively red berry and orange zest nuances.” Joe Czerwinski, Mar 16 2012 (98+ PARKER POINTS) “.. offers a gorgeous perfume of baking spices, violets, Sichuan pepper and fragrant earth. More earthy and savoury in the mouth than on the nose, the palate is superbly structured and taut - built for the long-haul - with a long, complex finish.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown Aug 16 2010 (99 PARKER POINTS) “.. offers a beautiful black fruit core, yielding notes of crushed blackberries and blueberries, with an undercurrent of coffee and spice box, plus touches of earth.. Fullbodied and built like a brick house, it has concentrated, very youthful fruit that reveals many layers in the long, long finish.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Aug 16 2009 (96+ PARKER POINTS) “.. displays a more evolved black plum and kirsch character accented by notes of pencil lead, black olives and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and a little mute, it has a very taut, firm structure that shows aging promise and a long finish. “ Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Feb 13 2008 (94 PARKER POINTS) “.. opens with intense notes of kirsch, warm black cherry, black raspberry and mulberry with overtones of pepper and spice and a bit of truffles and mocha.. it is rich with lively acid and firm, velvety tannins. It finishes long and spicy.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Feb 13 2007 (96+ PARKER POINTS) “..gives pronounced notes of warm blackberries and blueberries with nuances of earth, cumin seed, anise, black truffles, black olives and duck breast. Very full and voluptuous in the mouth, the richness is nicely supported by a high level of velvety tannins and lively acid, finishing long and layered.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Dec 11 2006 (97+ PARKER POINTS) “.. with suggestions of yeast extract, beef drippings and Bovril over a core of dried mulberries, plum preserves and mincemeat pie filling. The rich, full-bodied palate has TONS of fruit with a firm, fine structure and very long finish.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Aug 16 2005 (96 PARKER POINTS) “..black currant preserves and dried mulberries on the nose complemented by notes of charcoal, mocha, nuts and spices making it overall a little funky. Medium to full-bodied with rich, savoury fruit concentration, it is framed by medium to firm, grainy tannins that lend a taut and muscular character to the long finish.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Feb 13 Ranked in the top 21 wines in Australia in the Langton’s Wine Classificatio

Complex and intense notes of rich, dark fruit, spice and dark chocolate are enveloped by a velvety palate. A wine of great power, length and poise.

Producer Note

Certain names resonate strongly within Australian wine history and Jim Barry is one of them. It was Jim Barry’s drive that helped shape South Australia’s Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and cemented it as one of Australia’s premier wine regions. Jim was the first qualified winemaker in the Clare Valley, graduating with a degree in oenology from the prestigious Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1947. Founded in 1959, Jim Barry Wines is still family owned, with three generations of Roseworthy graduates. Jim’s son Peter became managing director in 1985 and today Peter’s children Tom, Sam and Olivia are the winemaker, commercial manager and brand ambassador respectively. Voted ‘Winery of the Year’ by Matthew Jukes they produce highly acclaimed and award-winning wines. Vineyard

The iconic and renowned 'Armagh' vineyard was named by the original Irish settlers who arrived in 1849 and called the lush, rolling hills after their homeland. In 1968, the vineyard was purchased by Jim Barry who planted it with Shiraz. Today these lowyielding vines produce less 27 hectolitres per hectare. The soil is sandy gravel and receives an average rainfall of 600 millimetres per year. The vineyard lies on a northwest facing slope which acts as a natural sun trap, ensuring the fruit is always fully ripened at harvest time. The vines are trained on a single cordon to promote even canopy growth. The removal of excessive shoots shortly after budburst, and crop thinning at véraison to remove any green bunches ensure the vines remain in balance. The Clare Valley climate is continental with a high diurnal temperature difference. The cool nights allow the vines to recover and produce Shiraz with even ripening of tannins and flavour. Winemaking

The grapes were hand-harvested and meticulously sorted before being destemmed and crushed. Vinification took place in small two tonne open top fermenters with heading down boards, which submerge the cap while gently extracting colour, flavour and tannins. Pump-overs were conducted twice a day with a rack and return once per day. Fermentation lasted eight days, before being racked to oak barrels where the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured for 16 months in 60% French and 40% American oak hogsheads, of which 85% were new. Tasting Note

Complex and intense aromas of rich dark fruit, sweet spice, dark chocolate and dried herbs lead to a palate of concentrated dark fruit flavours. Fine tannins envelope the abundance of persistent, lively fruit. This is a wine of great power, length and poise. Serving Suggestion
