Winemaker Notes

An inky red with a magenta hue in the glass, this wine opens with intense aromas of rich dark fruit, sweet and savory spice, dark chocolate and dried herbs. The palate displays concentrated dark fruit flavors of blackberry and cherry, supported by liquorice and creamy mocha oak. Well weighted with firm, fine tannin in support of the abundance of persistent, lively flavor. A wine of great power, length and poise.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Never the flashiest or most opulent Shiraz, The Armagh endures as a savory classic. The 2013 Shiraz The Armagh continues in that same vein, with scents of roasted meat, scorched mulberries and hints of vanilla leading the way. It's dense, concentrated and full-bodied, with supple (almost creamy) tannins that conceal much of their power in their ripeness, without the wine ever seeming too ripe, too oaky or too fruity. Those tannins linger and turn to silk on the long finish, picking up lively red berry and orange zest nuances. Good stuff.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
The 2013 vintage was a warm year with a short harvest, and so the Jim Barry's top red wine is more than ready to drink now. While it may not have as long a cellaring life as some of its predecessors, it's still a beautiful a wine. It starts with aromas of dried flowers, Dr. Pepper, raisiny plums, raw meat, milk chocolate and spices like cumin, star anise and white pepper. The palate is still showing relatively juicy, primary fruit that's sewn together with ultrafine, powdery tannins and an earthy spine. This is powerful yet finessed.
Editors' Choice
JS 94
James Suckling
Ripe but pretty aromas of blackberries, plum essence and cassis meet with licorice and chocolate as well as undertones of orange peel. Full body, grainy and intense tannins and a charcoal-like, long finish.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Expressive, rich and dark, featuring black licorice–scented plum and Black Forest cake notes that are plush and spicy, with velvety tannins and notes of chai tea lingering on the finish. Finds tremendous grace and harmony despite the intensity.

Jim Barry Winery Video

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.

The Clare Valley is actually a series of narrow north to south valleys, each with a different soil type and slightly different weather patterns along their stretch. In the southern heartland between Watervale and Auburn, there is mainly a crumbled, red clay loam soil called terra rossa and cool breezes come in from Gulf St. Vincent. A few miles north, in Polish Hill, is soft, red loam over clay; westerlies blowing in from the Spencer Gulf influece this area's climate.

The differences in soil, elevation, degree of slope and weather enable the region to produce some of Australia’s finest, aromatic, spicy and lime-pithy Rieslings, as well as excellent Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with ripe plummy fruit, good acid and big structure.

Clare Valley is an isolated farming country with a continental climate known for its warm and sunny days, followed by cool nights—perfect for wine grapes’ development of sugar and phenolic ripeness in conjunction with notable acidity levels.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
