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 ‘2020 Winery of
the Year' at the Halliday Wine Companion Awards they produce highly acclaimed
and award-winning wines.


Vineyard
The Clare Valley is a series of undulating hills within the higher ranges of the grape
growing area. Vine aspect and row orientation is as critical as soil type in terms of
the suitability of a vineyard site for a particular variety. Shiraz is suited to upper slopes
with northerly or western aspects and Cabernet Sauvignon suits the lower slopes and
thicker soils. The vines are trained on a single cordon to promote an even canopy.
The Clare Valley has a high diurnal temperature difference. The cool nights allow the
vines to recover from the heat of the day and produce Shiraz and Cabernet
Sauvignon with even ripening of tannins and flavour.


Winemaking
The grapes were sorted, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation took place in
stainless steel fermenters with heading down boards, which submerged the skins in
the fermenting must and moderated the temperature of 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 for between 7 to 10 days
before being pressed. Malolactic fermentation occurred in tank before the wine was
racked to French oak where it spent 11 months maturing.


Tasting Note
A juicy and vibrant blend with aromas of raspberry, blackberry and cherry lifted by
notes of violets and sweet spice. Bright, lively and brimming with red fruits on the
palate, this easy drinking wine is framed by soft, fine grained tannins through to a
touch of spice on the finish.
