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 ‘Winery of the Year’ by Matthew Jukes they produce highly acclaimed and award-winning wines.

This single vineyard wine is sourced from the Florita vineyard in Watervale. The Shiraz block is planted on a gentle northwest facing slope where the soil is composed of a thin layer of loam over limestone. The vines are trained on a single cordon with a rod and spur to promote even canopy growth along the cordon, to provide optimal shade and to avoid crowding of fruit to reduce disease. The Clare Valley climate has a high diurnal temperature difference, which produces an elegant Shiraz.
