About the Wine
The Jim Barry Annabelle's Rose has wonderful aromas of rose, strawberries and cream, and wet stone. The wine has a zingy mouthfeel with great acid, and the fruit sweetness leads into a dry finish. Crack it open when the sun is shining and enjoy it with a wide range of foods, such as fish or cheese.
In 2015, Jim Barry's granddaughter, Annabelle, was born. Her birth also coincided with the purchase of a vineyard next door to her, which also bears her name. Barry now has a "predicament", as he has several other grandchildren, so he will no doubt need to produce many new wines to honour them.
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.
