Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz Cellar Release 2014
Winemaking pioneer Jim Barry and his wife Nancy purchased 70 acres of prime farm land in 1964. They planted their first shiraz vineyard on this very special site.
The Jim Berry Cellar Release program was developed to showcase how these exceptional wines mature and obtain additional layers of complexity over time. Limited quantities of carefully selected vintages are held back to show the very best of the style.
Dark fruit, like blackberry, toasted spices, mint, sage and dill, roast coffee oak – a savoury cast to the wine, anyway. Medium bodied, again toasty and spicy, with fresh dark berries layered in with regional mint, fine powdery tannin, and a coffee and toast finish of fine length. Needs a bit of time to resolve, and sweeten up (perhaps), but a good iteration of this wine. - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
