Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz 2014 CONFIRM 2014 VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia
When Jim Barry first purchased the Lodge Hill property, his intention was to devote the entire area to white grapes. While Jim was conducting a soil analysis, he recognised his good fortune, discovering a very different profile on a small north facing slope. Warmer than the rest of the property, Jim decided it was the perfect place for premium Shiraz vines. His foresight lead to great triumph just before his passing, when Lodge Hill was awarded Best International Shiraz at the prestigious International Wine Challenge in London.
Jim Barry Wines draws some of the Clare Valley's most excellent Shiraz fruit from an august repertoire of mature vineyards. Lodge Hill itself is something quite special. It isn't just the climate and aspect that distinguishes this vineyard, terroir plays a major role. The soils here consist of forty to fifty centimetres of rich, chocolatey loam over almost vertically inclined rock sheets. The growing season is usually quite dry, but the fortuitous layout and composition of the site makes the vines resilient, yielding lavish Shiraz grapes with good flavours and varietal intensity. Following harvest and vinification, Lodge Hill is matured for a year or more in a combination of American and French oak barrels.
Deep, dark red/ black hues. Lifted aromas of mulberries and raspberry, coffee and kirsch. Mouthfilling flavours of bramble and chocolates, menthol and rosemary. A fine stuctural wine with delicate, sensual and ripe tannins. A wine that is ready for immediate enjoyment, the long, juicy finish, lingering and persistent, makes Lodge Hill highly suited to full flavoured red meat dishes such as ribeye or kangaroo.
