Jim Barry ‘Lodge Hill’ Clare Valley Shiraz 2016

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 13-May-2018
Very dark, deep, purple-red colour, near impenetrable and youthful in appearance. This has a bright, aromatic nose with dark red berry fruit and dark raspberries and violet florals, with some whole berry fermentation lift. Medium-full bodied, the palate is richly sweet and plush with fragrant dark-red florals, raspberries, plums and whole berry fermentation esters. The fruit is underlined by supple tannins that allow the juiciness to prevail, and fresh acidity enlivens the mouthfeel. This is a delicious fruit-forward and approachable style with fine textures. Great a barbecues and with pizza over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the ‘Lodge Hill’ vineyard fermented to 13.6% alc., the wine aged in seasoned French oak. 17.5-/20 May 2018 RRP $27.95
