Jim Barry Mcrae Wood Shiraz, Clare Valley, South Australia 2012
From one of the greatest Australian wineries comes this wine with spicy aromas of sweet plum, blackberry and liquorice, rich fruit character and velvety tannins followed by a long, elegant finish with plums.
"This wine has a dark, inky red hue. It shows notes of blood plum, cherry and dark berried fruits. Black olive, spice and charry oak also play a supporting role. The palate is restrained in its youth, whilst having the concentration and depth the McRae Wood is famous for. Maraschino cherry and blackberry fruit complements the tar and aniseed savouriness. While showing fantastic drive and power, the soft integrated tannins add a lengthy finish." Jim Barry
