2001 jim barry, the armagh shiraz, clare valley
Why We're Buying
The Armagh Shiraz represents the apex of Australian winemaking. This brainchild of Jim Barry has earned the highest possible rating in Langton's Classification of Australian Wine. After trying the 2016 vintage, wine critic James Suckling said, "Wow… Really impressive now, but this will deliver much more over the next two decades. One of the finest releases to date."
Distinctive, juicy and tremendously aromatic with cardamom- and white pepper-scented blackberry, cherry and licorice flavors spreading generously across the tongue, all beautifully woven together to sail on and on through the long finish. Tannins are already integrated.
