Can't miss a beat here... straight from the Barry Bros' cellar comes this immaculate example of Lodge Hill from a bygone era. Nearly two decades old, this Shiraz is remarkable at just how youthful it feels.

The Lodge Hill vineyard has always produced iconic Australian wines, and this Shiraz from its earliest incarnations, would have a place at the table. 

As a trophy winner at the prestigious International Wine Challenge in 2004, the Barry family decided the wine would be a suitable fit for their cellar-release program. This here, is the results, so 18 years later. A ravishing, mature Shiraz from the beating heart of one of Australia's proudest wine families. 

Sourced from the Lodge Hill vineyard, overlooking the Clare Valley below, the low-yielding vines craft a velvety Shiraz that balances savoury, earthen flavours, with the richness and vibrant fruit the Clare is known for. Exemplary wine, at a more than reasonable price.

Expert Reviews

93 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionOpaque colour; powerful blackberry, black olive and earth aromas; layer-upon-layer of black fruit flavours, but not extractive.
90 Points - Robert Parker - Wine AdvocateA terrific value, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2002 Shiraz The Lodge Hill exhibits minty blackberry characteristics intermixed with a hint of pepper. Medium-bodied, corpulent, and fleshy, it is a delicious red
90 Points - Jeremy OliverLively, minty and easy-drinking shiraz with a floral perfume of cassis, plums and eucalypt interwoven with a balanced measure of sweet vanilla oak. Smooth and elegant, its silky, supple palate of vibrant small berry flavours is accentuated by spicy and minty complexity, finishing with fine-grained tannins and lingering sweet fruit flavours. Tasted 2015
89 Points - Wine SpectatorDistinctly minty, expansively aromatic but tightening up on the palate, with firm tannins and dark fruit that emerges expressively along with spices and herbs on the solid finish.

How was it made?

Jim Barry purchased the land for The Lodge Hill Vineyard in 1977 as he was sure it would “produce some of the best Riesling in the Clare Valley.” 

The Lodge Hill Shiraz, on the Clare Valley’s eastern ranges, has soils of rich, chocolaty loam over almost vertical sheets of rock. The cracks between the rock have filled with soil, providing passage for the vine roots and free drainage – the ideal environment for low yielding Shiraz vines.

Who made it?

Jim Barry Wines is a family winery based in the Clare Valley of South Australia. The company was founded in 1959 by Jim and Nancy Barry. The company is now owned and managed by Peter Barry, a second generation family winemaker.

From $10 quaffers through to truly monumental $100 bottles of liquid art, I love introducing friends, family and our customers to world beating wines at all price points.
