STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
In 1964 Jim Barry, and his wife Nancy, purchased 70 acres of prime farm land from their friend & neighbour, Duncan McRae Wood. On this special site they planted their first Shiraz vineyard.The McRae Wood Shiraz is made from grapes declassified from The Armagh and blended with fruit from special parcels from the family’s other Clare Valley vineyards. In many ways it should be considered the Second Wine from this fabulous estate.
Jim Barry's 2014 Shiraz The McRae Wood offers bold notes of mulberries, mint and cedar on the nose. It's full-bodied and supple in texture, with hints of mocha, roasted meat, and some brighter cherry notes that peek through on the sturdy, firm finish. It's drinkable now, but should evolve well for a decade or more. 92 Points The Wine Advocate
