Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz 2013

  • $45.00*

This Shiraz honours the vision of pioneer Clare Valley winemaker Jim Barry. In 1964 Jim purchased 70 acres of prime land from Duncan McRae Wood and planted his first vineyard with Shiraz. It was an inspired choice of both grape variety and location.
Winemaker Notes

Colour:
This is a well-weighted, medium-bodied, but concentrated Shiraz, which shows a beautiful purple/red colour with high clarity.

Aroma:
It offers perfumed and floral aromas of sandalwood, marjoram and thyme.

Palate:
The palate has a core of sweet dark fruits including
raspberry, loganberry, plum and cherry. The tannins are fine
grained and carefully balanced with vibrant acidity and a
satisfying finish.

Cellaring:
A wine made using the ‘Jim Barry’ method and as such can be enjoyed upon release but would equally benefit from a rest in the cellar to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age.
