'This is long, penetrative across a multitude of layers and yet, despite the razor-sharp definition, relaxed. '

  • 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.


    This micro-batch, super-premium Riesling is the fruit of years of patience. We selected individual rows where the terra rossa and loam barely cover the deep limestone below. To guarantee the freshness of these precious grapes, we carefully picked batches to precisely fill our membrane press in the chill of night and destemmed the bunches without crushing them.


    This wine expresses a pale straw in the glass with a slight green tinge. Opens with lifted aromatics of lemon, lime and citrus blossom. A wine of immense drive and purity, the palate displays powerful, pure fruit with great length of flavour. Citrus flavours abound. Tight, linear acidity holds the wine it great stead for the future. A magnificent benchmark dry Riesling to be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring for the next ten years.


    'Superlative Clare! Grapefruit pulp, lemon zest, jasmine, bath salts and Thai herb notes stream across a bow of limestone-derived minerality and palate-whetting acidity. This is long, penetrative across a multitude of layers and yet, despite the razor-sharp definition, relaxed. There is nothing hard or abrasive about this. It flows long with alacrity in its step! This will reward patience in the cellar.'

    'Essence of Clare Riesling, intensity of fruit, structure and drive, lemon/lime, firm almost dusty texture, fresh squeezed lime and rind with a dash of tonic, great length. Benchmark, I feel. Keep as long as you can, or drink now with something salty and tasty'
