The late Jim Barry was a pioneer of the Australian wine industry. Today the company is headed by Jim's second son Peter. Jim Barry Wines produces their estate wines from family owned vineyards in the Clare Valley and Coonawarra. The Amragh Shiraz, with The McRae Wood Shiraz, The Benbournie Cabernet Sauvignon and the Florita Riesling are the super premium wines of the portfolio.
Made in small quantities, this is only the second vintage of this wine and so far the results are promising. The nose is heady and aromatic in tones of lemon-lime, peach juice, florals and touches of white pepper and wild herbs. A rush of racy acidity on the palate is balanced by a chalky, stoney texture. This is a refreshing, summery drop perfect for shellfish or Southeast Asian cuisine.
