The Armagh Shiraz 2014
- Clare Valley
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
The name of ‘Armagh’ was bestowed by the original Irish settlers who arrived in 1849, and named the lush rolling hills after their homeland.
The vineyard was planted by Jim Barry in 1968 and yields less than two tonnes per acre. The soil is sandy-gravel and receives an average rainfall of 600mm per year. The vineyard lies on a north-west facing slope which acts as a natural sun trap, ensuring the fruit is always fully ripened when picked.
- Intense red with a magenta hue.
- This wine is extremely fragrant, with rich blackberry, aniseed and garden herb aromas intertwined with savoury oak notes.
- How it tastes
- A plush and concentrated wine, displaying rich black cherry and blackberry fruits with mocha like oak and hints of aniseed. A wine of great complexity and power, finishing firm and oaky with persistent sweet fruit length.
