The Jim Barry The Lodge Hill Shiraz 2017 wine is from the Clare Valley in South Australia this is a full bodied yet elegant Shiraz. Mulberry, raspberry, coffee, bramble and chocolate with ripe tannins. A great example of modern Australian shiraz from the picturesque Clare Valley. Unlike some blockbusters of yesteryear, this is a fragrant, medium-bodied shiraz of lovely varietal purity. This Shiraz has aromas of floral, herbal and spicy, with a generous core of ripe berryfruit on nose and palate. Texture is silky and fine with lingering flavours backed by balanced, easy tannins.
