2017 was a cooler, more humid vintage in Clare Valley. As a result, as opposed to big powerhouses, the wines veered towards softness and elegance. James Suckling highlights the finesse and freshness in the latest 2017 vintage; he calls this is “an elegant, athletic Armagh and one that trades on acidity and more medium weight tannin structure” (JS).

A vintage of energy, tension and precision, Jane Anson and Georgina Hindle of Decanter agree that this wine is “built to last”, with the latter critic suggests to drink it from 2025 to 2040.

About Jim Barry

The name of late Jim Barry echoes through the halls of Australian wine-making fame – right up there with Henschke, Penfolds and Torbreck.

As the first qualified winemaker in the Clare Valley, Jim Barry’s lifetime of work has shaped South Australia’s Clare Valley into a world benchmark for Riesling and Shiraz. Over the last 60 years, the Barry family has established 17 vineyard sites across the Clare Valley (plus two more in Coonawarra), each with differences in aspect and soil, creating unique Australian wines with a regional focus genuine sense of place. Over this time, they have established themselves as one of Australia’s “first families” of wine.

Today, Jim Barry Wines remains firmly in the hands of the Barry family. Championed by the third generation, Tom, Sam and Olivia Barry, and under the guidance of their father, Peter, they continue the excellent work started by their founding grandfather, which culminated in them winning the James Halliday “Companion Winery of the Year” in 2020.
