Jim Barry Wines Watervale Riesling 2023 75cl

£14.95

Tasting Note

A juicy and vibrant blend with aromas of raspberry, blackberry and cherry lifted by notes of violets and sweet spice. Bright, lively and brimming with red fruits on the palate, this easy drinking wine is framed by soft, fine grained tannins through to a touch of spice on the finish.

Producer

Certain names resonate strongly within Australian wine history and Jim Barry is one of them. It was Jim Barry’s drive that helped shape South Australia’s Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and cemented it as one of Australia’s premier wine regions. Jim was the first qualified winemaker in the Clare Valley, graduating with a degree in oenology from the prestigious Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1947. Founded in 1959, Jim Barry Wines is still family owned, with three generations of Roseworthy graduates. Jim’s son Peter became managing director in 1985 and today Peter’s children Tom, Sam and Olivia are the winemaker, commercial manager and brand ambassador respectively. Voted ‘2020 Winery of the Year' at the Halliday Wine Companion Awards, they produce highly acclaimed, award-winning wines.
