    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    This is no pushover in the company of The Armagh, and it's a whole lot easier to enjoy, even though the day for each is long off. Here the fruits are rounder, the tannins following suit - even touches of red/purple fruits here. Once again, a wine to be respected. And enjoyed.

    JAMES SUCKLING


    There’s a vibrant red-fruit core and this has such impressive depth and structure with a vibrant, lightly spicy plum palate, as well as dark berries. Fluid palate with a rich and assertive core of raspberries and red plums. Full body. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Deep, dark colour and a strong toasty oak boquuet, walnuts, freshly-turned earth and dried spices. The wine is full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with very good density and length. A complete, full-bodied wine, with generous supple tannins. Impressive.

    GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT


    Och aye, the alcohol levels increasingly getting more wee in the Jim Barry red wines. Our Mike has Scottish heritage, and while you’d expect with a name like Campbell, his forebears may well have tossed the old caber in their time, apparently that’s not the case. I’ve only English and Irish (as far as I know). I do tell my kids I’m secretly Italian, of course. “YOU ARE NOT ITALIAN, DAD” (roll eyes emoticon). Dark fruit, walnut and wheatgerm, dried mint, toasty and spicy. It’s medium to full-bodied, nutty and tightly packed with tannin, salted beef and spice, fresh blackberry acidity, and a firm long finish. Good shape and intensity. It could do with a few more years in bottle to let it unfurl.

    JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE


    Jim Barry's 2016 The McRae Wood Shiraz is a blend of the best lots from Lodge Hill with declassified Armagh. It comes across as a bit old-fashioned next to offerings like The Barry Bros, but it will appeal to consumers looking for traditional, sturdy South Australian Shiraz at a realistic price. Mulberries and red currants join hints of cedar and cola spice in this firmly structured, medium to full-bodied wine that finishes in a wash of dusty tannins.
