Jim Barry from South Australia's Clare Valley makes some of the country’s best Shiraz wines, The McRae Wood is reminiscent of the type of Shiraz that put Australia on the wine map 20 years ago. Savoury and powerful with intense spicy fruit.
Highly perfumed and floral aromas of cardamom, rose petals and fennel seed. The palate has flavours of spearmint, boysenberry, plums and black cherries. Fine grained tannins are skilfully balanced with vivacious acidity and a velvety finish.
A wine made using the ‘Jim Barry’ method and as such can be enjoyed upon release but would equally benefit from a rest in the cellar to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age. Would match well with rich gutsy lamb or beef stews.
