Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Shiraz from Jim Barry is very good. It opens with a blueberry and spearmint bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe plum and boysenberry blend with notes of cedar and some hints of blueberry and mocha. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins nice length. This Shiraz is a true crowd-pleasing wine. We would suggest drinking it on its own with friends. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This wine has a dark, inky red hue. It shows lifted notes of red and black berry fruits on the nose, a touch of graphite earthiness, savoury spice and creamy nougat oak in support. Mixed dark berry fruits on the palate, vibrant acidity and fine grain tannin lead into a long, persistent finish. 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.
