Clare Valley

2015 The McRae Wood Shiraz

This Shiraz honours the vision of pioneer Clare Valley winemaker Jim Barry. In 1964, Jim purchased 70 acres 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.

This wine displays lovely red and purple tones in the glass. Rich, vibrant aromas of blackcurrant and briary fruits with hints of vanillin oak and spice. Red and purple fruits carry onto the palate supported by a rich, earthy undertone and fine silky tannins giving the wine terrific structure, great length and persistent flavour. A wine with great vibrancy in its youth with the potential to develop for many years. Made using the ‘Jim Barry’ method and as such can be enjoyed upon release, but would equally benefit from cellaring to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age.
