THE BRIEF
  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Certain names resonate strongly within the halls of Australian wine history. Jim Barry is one such name. It was Jim Barry's drive and community spirit that helped shape South Australia's Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and cemented its place as one of Australia's premier wine regions.

  • The name of 'Armagh' was bestowed by the original Irish settlers who arrived in 1849 and named the lush, rolling hills after their homeland. In 1968 the vineyard was planted by Jim Barry and yields less than two tonnes per acre. The soil is sandy gravel and receives an average rainfall of 600mm per year. The vineyard lies on a north-west facing slope which acts as a natural sun trap, ensuring the fruit is always fully ripened when picked.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    An inky red with a magenta hue in the glass, this wine opens with intense aromas of rich dark fruit, sweet and savoury spice, dark chocolate and dried herbs. The palate displays concentrated dark fruit flavours of blackberry and cherry, supported by liquorice and creamy mocha oak. Well weighted with firm, fine tannin in support of the abundance of persistent, lively flavour. A wine of great power, length and poise.

  • Jim Barry Wines is a family winery based in the Clare Valley of South Australia. The company was founded in 1959 by Jim and Nancy Barry. The company is now owned and managed by Peter Barry, a second generation family winemaker. Jim Barry Wines is home to some of Australia's favourite wines such as The Armagh, The McRae Wood, The Benbournie, First Eleven, Pb, The Cover Drive, The Lodge Hill Shiraz, The Barry Brothers, The Florita, The Lodge Hill Riesling and Watervale Riesling.
