Jim Barry was the Clare Valley’s first trained winemaker & what  legacy he has left behind! His son Peter manages the company to this day, and is the winemaker for this wine. It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz and a testament to the awesome power these grape varieties can muster when ripened under the Australian sun. The oak ageing the wine was exposed to has imparted complexity to it and helped soften its tannins and the wine shows a full range of fruit from raspberry, to cherry, to blackcurrant, to bramble to plum – along with nutmeg and licorice characteristics from oak, and truffle characteristics from bottle age. Magnificent.
