The late Jim Barry was a pioneer of the Australian wine industry. He was the first qualified winemaker to work in the Clare Valley of South Australia and with his wife, Nancy, built a successful wine business which has produced trophy-winning wines since its establishment in 1959. Today, the company is headed by Jim’s second son Peter, who took over from his father as Managing Director.
We enjoyed this wine recently. Definitely decant it though. It's very big compared to other Shiraz I've had. We loved it!
A smoother taste than the 2008 Shiraz. Lots of tannins for aging. Reminds me of new car smell. 89/100
