Clare Valley , SAVintage:
Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz
This wine is a deep red with a bright magenta hue.
Vibrant aromatics of purple fruited compote, spice and purple florals on the nose.
The palate is dominated by dark fruits and brambles, spice and a hint of warming oak, with a seamless flow and integrated tannin.Juicy dark fruit flavours persist through the finish, with a hint of violet to close.
Deeply-coloured with plenty of extract, this smells immediately inviting, pure and aromatic, with less of the mint/eucalypt characters that sometimes mark shiraz from Clare. It's medium to full-bodied, plump and texturally attractive, with real length and succulent balance. Good value. Rating: 91
