Jim Barry Assyrtiko 2021
In August 2012 we planted Australia’s first Assyrtiko at our Lodge Hill Vineyard, a special and unique site treasured by my family and suited to this variety. Our Assyrtiko journey has been fascinating and has enabled us to produce a wine which, I believe, is a true expression of the variety. I hope you find the flavours as interesting as I did in 2006.” Peter Barry, Third Generation Family Winemaker.
Lifted white floral aromas and wet stone on the nose. The fruit weighted palate offers light floral, wet slate and citrus flavours with a mineral texture, and a classic lick of saline on the finish. Screaming summer drinking, the finish is clean and refreshingly long.
