Jim Barry the Lodge Hill Shiraz Clare Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Wine Advocate: Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2011 The Lodge Hill Shiraz has lovely black berry and red cherry aromas with hints of black pepper and violets and just a touch of Provence herbs on the nose. Medium-bodied with a low to medium level of chewy tannins, it offers a nice savory character in the mouth lending interest to the bright fruits, finishing long and refreshing. Drink it now to 2017+. (Dec 2012) -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2011 The Lodge Hill Shiraz has lovely black berry and red cherry aromas with hints of black pepper and violets and just a touch of Provence herbs on the nose. Medium-bodied with a low to medium level of chewy tannins, it offers a nice savory character in the mouth lending interest to the bright fruits, finishing long and refreshing. Drink it now to 2017+. Vivid ruby. Dark berries and dried flowers on the spice-accented nose. Juicy and nicely focused on the palate, offering gently sweet blueberry and cherry flavors that pick up a bitter edge with air. Closes with good cut and lift, with dusty tannins giving a firm edge to the fruit. ** ONLY 4 IN STOCK **
