Jim Barry The Armagh Shiraz 2013

The iconic 'Armagh' vineyard was named by the original Irish settlers who arrived in
1849 and called the lush, rolling hills after their homeland. In 1968, the vineyard was
purchased by Jim Barry who planted it with Shiraz. Today these low yielding vines
produce less than 27 hectolitres per hectare. 

Complex and intense aromas of rich dark fruit, sweet spice, dark chocolate and dried herbs lead to a palate of concentrated dark fruit flavours. Fine tannins envelope the abundance of fruit. This is a wine of great power, length and poise.
