External Reviews for Jim Barry Shiraz Clare Valley Mclaren Vale
The 2008 Lodge Hill Shiraz offers intense notes of warm blackberry, spearmint and licorice with an earthy undercurrent of loam, tar and tree bark. The rich, medium to full bodied palate is nicely balanced with crisp acidity and a medium level of gritty tannins, finishing long. Drinking now, it should continue to give pleasure to 2016+. Lithe, deftly balanced and distinctive for its mineral and black pepper flavors that wrap around a core of blackberry and currant fruit. Keeps going through the finish. Drink now through 2016. 7,500 cases imported. -HS Glass-staining purple. Intense, highly perfumed scents of boysenberry, blueberry and smoky Indians spices, with a sexy note of vanilla and a late hint of cracked pepper. Juicy, deeply concentrated dark berry flavors are framed by silky tannins and lifted by tangy acidity. This suave wine finishing with attractive sweetness and a floral character. ** Only 15 in Stock **
This wine is inky in colour, with aromas of black cherry, dark plums, vanilla and chocolate. The palate is medium to full-bodied, displaying flavours of ripe black cherry, plum fruit and mocha characteristics. The fine grained talc-like tannins support a lingering velvety finish.
In 1977 when Jim Barry first purchased the Lodge Hill property, his intention was to devote the entire area to Riesling. However, there was a small area which had a gentle slope facing north, capturing the warmer conditions of the elevated site and he decided that it was an ideal place to grow a premium Shiraz. The nose is aromatic and complex, with a combination of fruit and spice: Cinnamon, White Pepper, Cajun Spices, Mocha, Liquorice and Blackberry. The palate is approachable, offering notes of Menthol, Spearmint, Violets and Boysenberry. This is ready for immediate enjoyment with a view to cellaring for 7 to 10 years from vintage.
