Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz 2017
This Shiraz honours the vision of pioneer Clare Valley winemaker Jim Barry. In 1964, Jim purchased 70 acres of prime land from Duncan McRae Wood and planted his first vineyard with Shiraz. It was an inspired choice of both grape variety and location.
This wine displays lovely red and purple tones in the glass. Dark plums, spice and purple forals on the nose.
The palate enters with black plum, black cherries with brambles and compote detailed with spice and elegance.
A wine of refrained structure and integrated tannin, dark spice and black berries to finish.
Made using the ‘Jim Barry’ method and as such can be enjoyed upon release, but would equally benefit from cellaring to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age.
