Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz 2018
Darker then the night, black berries, black forest and dark spice, a tight line, coiled tension, the driver is black forest and spice throughout with integrated but youthful tannin line, long drive out the back, a wine built for aging.
In 1964 Jim Barry, and his wife Nancy, purchased 70 acres of prime farm land from their friend and neighbour, Duncan McRae Wood. On this special site they planted their first Shiraz vineyard.
The McRae Wood Shiraz is made from grapes declassified from The Armagh and blended with fruit from special parcels from the family’s other Clare Valley vineyards.
Rich and intense, it was considered a modern and innovative style of wine, when it was first released in 1992.
