“Just as the two previous generations brought new and innovative viticultural and winemaking ideas to Jim Barry Wines, we are determined to forge our individual mark. We have taken inspiration from our family’s history to create this wine. Our two favourite varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet, were blended to deliver a contemporary expression of this traditional Australian style.”
Tom & Sam Barry

The 55th vintage at Jim Barry Wines started with a rush after a week of hot weather in early February. Water was kept up to the vines to make sure the canopy stayed intact. The Clare Valley was fortunate to receive 13.8mm on the 14th of February, which hydrated the vines without causing splitting. A further 75.8mm was received over two hours on the 15th of February and ran off quickly.

This vintage was outstanding for Clare Shiraz, which produced intensely flavoured berries. The rain in February was almost perfectly timed as it allowed flavour ripeness to catch up to the tannin and sugar ripening, so that at harvest they were in balance. The team finished picking the Cabernet in early April. It benefited from the three weeks of 25 degree days and 10 degree nights – long, slow ripening resulting in a refined, classic Cabernet flavour profile.

This wine is a deep purple in appearance. Dark fruits are the signature of this vintage with scents of liqueur cherries, blackberry, blood plum, aniseed and spice. The wine opens up and displays lifted violet floral notes. On the palate, there are juicy red fruits of cherry, plum and raspberry, with hints of earth and savoury herbs. This wine displays a brightness complemented by supple tannins and a persistent finish.
