'Here complexity and power are the name of the game, power both in depth and length. Fresh acidity is woven like a thread of silver through a tapestry, orange blossom, lemon curd, white peach and nectarine, pink grapefruit and toasty oak notes come and go.'

'Wow. I’m tempted to describe this as elegant but it has so much power and I’m wary of giving the wrong impression. It offers pure blackcurrant fruit flavour and then layers boysenberry, bay leaf, dust, smoked meats and sweet herb notes throughout.'
95 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
'Neon purple, perfume, pepper, boysenberry, blackcurrant, honey biscuits. It’s light to medium-bodied, intense small berried black fruit, plenty of bunch and spice... Wonderful delineation and expression of Shiraz.'
96 Points - Gary Walsh
The gift that keeps on giving. Jim Barry's take on the famed grape variety from Santorini in the Greek Isles has fast become one of the biggest selling alternative wines at My Wine Guy, and for good reason too.
Originally planted in the Clare in 2012, the Assyrtiko holds court with the regions great Riesling wines, with notes of Meyer lemon, melon and a saline/mineral twang. Epic stuff, we just can't keep it in stock long enough.
