Jim Barry's Armagh is some of Australia’s finest Shiraz. Massive depth but complexity is the focus, with a seriously built palate where dense black fruits are the powerful vehicle of endless unfolding in toasty, spicy and earthy layers. With 4 years under its belt this legend is entering its drinking phase soon enough, so not knock one off and decide how long to keep the others.

Overview

Grape

Shiraz/Syrah

Its Origins

"The name Jim Barry is synonymous with Clare Valley family winemaking excellence. Graduating in 1947 as the 17th student with a degree at Roseworthy, Jim Barry with his wife Nancy went on to establish his own venture by purchasing property in 1959. Their sons Peter, Mark and John joined to grow the business to what it is today with Peter as the current managing director. Peter’s sons Tom and Sam are about to take over the Barry family reins, but as with such situations, handing over is never easy." Raymond Chan

What The Critics Say

96/100 Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, Campbell Mattinson

"A powerhouse release. It rips, it churns, it impresses and most all: it gets on with business. Dense black berried fruits of various persuasions, coffee-cream oak, sprinkles of dried herbs and a surge of flavour and tannin to close. It's like admiring a big sea; the power complete with the glory." Drink by 2040

96/100 Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown

"Never the flashiest or most opulent Shiraz, The Armagh endures as a savory classic. The 2013 Shiraz The Armagh continues in that same vein, with scents of roasted meat, scorched mulberries and hints of vanilla leading the way. It's dense, concentrated and full-bodied, with supple (almost creamy) tannins that conceal much of their power in their ripeness, without the wine ever seeming too ripe, too oaky or too fruity. Those tannins linger and turn to silk on the long finish, picking up lively red berry and orange zest nuances. Good stuff." Drink 2020-2035
