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.

When I fall in love with a wine when traveling, I bring back a couple of bottles. When Peter Barry fell in love with Assyrtiko on a trip to Greece, he returned and brought back some vine cuttings. The 2017 Assyrtiko is full of brine and lime zest on the nose, then offers medium body, a plump, leesy mouthfeel and a long, citrus-sherbet finish. With no appreciable track record, I'd suggest drinking it over the near term, but it could surprise. Wine Advocate 90
