Jim Barry, The Lodge Hill 2008 Shiraz Clare Valley

Leave a comment

International wine challenge gold, 2010. Brilliant value, 14.5%, deep dark garnet colour. Robust aromas of rasberry, coffee, cherry, mulberry, chocolate and liquorice. Fine to open on Monday pm and enjoy as the week progresses. In fact, it opens up over a few days, gradually revealing sensual ripe sweet tannins. This wine is packed with the lot and is remniscent of the far costlier Jim Barry McRae Wood, which is also excellent. This is a bargain 20% off at Majestic, down to £7.99. (I may have snapped up Majestic’s stock, but it is also available through other merchants – check out www.wine-searcher.com
