Jim Barry Shiraz Clare Valley the Armagh 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

98+ points Lisa Perotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Shiraz The Armagh offers a gorgeous perfume of baking spices, violets, Sichuan pepper and fragrant earth. More earthy and savory in the mouth than on the nose, the palate is superbly structured and taut--built for the long-haul''with a long, complex finish. Still very youthfully, forget this wine for 3-5 more years and consider drinking it over the next 20+. Drink 2018-2038 (Aug 2016)

Today, the company is headed by Jim’s second son Peter, who took over from his father as Managing Director.
