Jim Barry Lodge Hill Riesling 2021
Framed with zippy grapefruit, the nose of this wine is bursting with lime leaf, citrus rind and yellow melons.
On the palate, it exhibits classic Clare flavours, including white stone fruit, lime juice, lemon verbena and old fashioned lemonade. It has a plush line throughout with plenty of length and girth.
Jim Barry purchased the land for the Lodge Hill vineyard in 1977 as he was sure it would “produce some of the best Riesling in Clare.” Situated on the eastern ranges of the township of Clare, Lodge Hill is one of the highest vineyards in the Valley - at an altitude of 480 metres - and is ideal for producing steely, minerally Rieslings, distinctive to the area.
