Jim Barry Shiraz Clare Valley the Lodge Hill 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

A lighter style Shiraz that blossoms. Less peppery but yummy.

Deep purple hues, lifted delicate aromas of cinnamon, white pepper, blackberry, mocha, and liquorice. The menthol, spearmint, violet, and boysenberry flavors that fill the mouth are present in abundance, with soft, supple and structural tannins playing a supporting role.
