A stunning Armagh.

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. Aged for 14 months in a combination French & American oak. Impenetrable inky black colour with very deep black crimson red hue. The nose expels exuberant aromas of ripe blackberry, liquorice and black plum with some underlying vanillin oak, mocha and a faint touch of mint. Possessing imposing power and extravagant richness the palate delivers luscious flavours of ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate with an overlay of subtle spearmint followed by some vanillin oak and spice. Opulently textured with solidly built yet perfectly integrated finely tuned tannin structure. Exceptionally long ripe blackberry, liquorice, subtle spearmint, dark chocolate and spicy vanillin oak aftertaste.
