Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz 2013

In 1964, Jim Barry purchased 28 hectares of prime land from Duncan McRae Wood and planted his first vineyard with Shiraz. It was an inspired choice of both grape variety and location. Matured in French oak for 12 months the McRae Wood Shiraz displays lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberry fruits and perfumed violets, complemented by a lick of toasty vanillin oak. The palate is restrained in its youth, but delivers depth and concentration with dark forest-fruits, rich fruitcake and a streak of earthy goodness. A wine of fantastic drive and complexity, the delicate grained tannins enhance the lengthy finish.
