Description
 
Jim Barry Wines’ philosophy to winemaking is very simple: own the vineyards to develop the best fruit flavours possible and retain these flavours during winemaking. They firmly believe that great wine is made in the vineyard. Over their 55 years, they have worked to establish a mosaic of vineyards across the Clare Valley, each unique in site, soil and aspect. In addition to this, they have two vineyards in the Coonawarra region, where they grow Cabernet Sauvignon on the famous Terra Rossa soils.

On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950. Sadly, the ground closed in 1996. Soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard.

A blend of Clare Valley and Coonawarra fruit, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Cover Drive opens to a very minty black and red currant nose with tons of cloves, cedar and exotic spices. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate with plenty of menthol and cassis flavors, the firm and chewy tannins hold through the long finish. Wine Advocate 90+ (2013)
