The name of ‘Armagh’ was bestowed by the original Irish settlers who arrived in 1849, and named the lush rolling hills after their homeland. The vineyard was planted by Jim Barry in 1968 and yields less than two tonnes per acre. Composed of sandy-gravel soils it receives an average rainfall of 600mm per year. The vineyard lies on a north-west facing slope which acts as a natural sun trap, ensuring the fruit is always fully ripened when picked. The 2007 growing season was the driest in 24 years, meaning that vintage was much earlier than usual. The Armagh vineyard was hand-picked in early March and the wine was matured in French and American oak for 15 months Totally opaque inky black colour purple colour showing superb colour saturation with black dark red hue. The nose displays intense aromas of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate and dark plum along with some mocha and vanillin oak. The palate delivers super concentrated flavours of ripe blackberry, dark plum and dark chocolate followed by a touch of liquorice, vanillin oak and spice. Thick voluptuous texture with silky smooth plush tannins. Outstanding depth with very long aftertaste of dark plum, liquorice, dark chocolate and vanillin spice.
Cellar 8-10 years.
