Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is deep garnet in colour, with purple tints. On the nose there are intense aromas of varietal fruit, with an underlying layer of complexity. The palate shows vibrant summer berries—primarily mulberry, strawberry and boysenberry, with background nuances of rose petals and spearmint. The fine grained talc-like soft tannins support a refreshing and enduring finish.

A wine developed for immediate consumption, with a cellaring capacity of 5-7 years. Suited to robust red dishes such as kangaroo, beef or lamb.

About Jim Barry:

From the heart of South Australia, Jim Barry was a legendary and beloved Clare Valley identity. Since 1959, Jim Barry Wines reflect the Barry family's commitment to making table wines with an emphasis on quality and enjoyment. Jim Barry's philosophy of winemaking was very simple: own the vineyards to develop the best fruit flavors possible and retain these flavors during winemaking. The rich, full-bodied Jim Barry wines distinctly embody this simple winemaking philosophy.
