Clare Valley

2017 Lodge Hill Shiraz

Jim Barry purchased the land for The Lodge Hill Vineyard in 1977 as he was sure it would “produce some of the best Riesling in the Clare Valley.” 

The Lodge Hill Shiraz, on the Clare Valley’s eastern ranges, has soils of rich, chocolaty loam over almost vertical sheets of rock. The cracks between the rock have filled with soil, providing passage for the vine roots and free drainage – the ideal environment for low yielding Shiraz vines.

This wine is a deep red with a bright magenta hue.

Vibrant aromatics of purple fruited compote, spice and purple florals on the nose.

The palate is dominated by dark fruits and brambles, spice and a hint of warming oak, with a seamless flow and integrated tannin.Juicy dark fruit flavours persist through the finish, with a hint of violet to close. This wine is ideally suited to good food, good friends and good conversation.
