About the Wine
The Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz is a beautiful wine, with aromas of ripe dark fruit and spice. There's a wonderful balance between the fruitiness and savouriness, with some bottle-age characters now coming through. While it is already several years old, it can live for much longer, and will develop wonderfully with the right cellaring conditions.
The McRae Wood Shiraz is Jim Barry's second best known Shiraz, after their super-premium legend, The Armagh. When the Armagh is not produced, the fruit is often used for The McRae Wood instead, offering tremendous value for drinkers.
About Jim Barry Wines
Jim Barry Wines is a family affair in the Clare Valley.
Founded by one of SA's most influential wine figures, this producer has been one of the most acclaimed in the region since it began in 1974.
They focus primarily on traditional Clare Valley varieties, with a myriad of laser-sharp Rieslings, powerful Shiraz and intense Cabernet blends making up the foundations of the range. With a sprawling range including everything from super-premium to top value, they are considered a cornerstone of the Clare with classic wines that develop beautifully in the cellar given time.
Now, with the third generation of Barrys - Sam, Tom and Olivia - now in charge of the winemaking, marketing and business development, there is a new energy about the brand and there are plenty of exciting new things on the horizon.
