2012 Jim Barry The Lodge Hill Shiraz Museum Release

Clare Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$19.99 Bottle

Jim Barry purchased the land for The Lodge Hill Vineyard in 1977 as he was sure it would “produce some of the best Riesling in the Clare Valley”. However, there was a small area which had a gentle slope facing north, capturing the warmer conditions of the elevated site and he decided that it was an ideal place to grow a premium Shiraz.

Direct from the cellars of Jim Barry this is a bottle aged beauty that’s drinking superbly.

Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Pronounced aniseed top notes intermingle with blackberry, dark plum, smoky vanillin cedar, fennel and pepper. The palate is still remarkably fresh and shows virtually no signs of age. Rich dark plum, aniseed and blackberry fruits supplely caress the mouth with underlying lightly toasted vanillin cedar, fennel and pepper. The tannins have softened with time and the plush fruits are shining through. Excellent intensity and depth with a long expansive aftertaste that sees touches of scorched earth make an appearance. At current vintage pricing this represents great buying. Limited stocks.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
Vivid purple-crimson; a totally delicious wine with a spring in its step more frequently encountered in cool climate shiraz; its fruit flavours span blood plum, red cherry and mulberry, these complexed by spice and garden herbs, the tannins fine and supple. Great value. Drink by 2027. Tasted September 2013.
