The flagship wine of the Jim Barry range, The Armagh is a wine of immense power, persistence and concentration. 2007 was one of the driest vintages on record so the grapes were small but exceptionally deeply flavoured with a high ratio of solids to liquid. The expected aromas of blackberry and spice are complemented by some blueberry and lifted cranberry notes, with a hint of mint in the background.

On the palate the tannins are much in evidence as one would expect from such a young wine but …

…reviewing portfolio has changed. Back then, I did quite a few Australian wines: Penfolds, Jim Barry, St. Hallett and Benjamin among others. Nowadays I no longer review the wines of Australia. Back then I also showed some high scores for some Mendocino wines, including a fabulous 1999 Fife " Old Yokayo Ranch" Syrah (95 points). I don't do Mendocino anymore (I miss Anderson Valley!)-that's my lovely colleague, Virginie Boone -nor do I do Temecula, …

Barton and Lynch families among others, Australia has Jim Barry as well as the Horgan family of Leeuwin Estate, and there are several in the US, including Concannon and Montelena.

So that gives a few wine options if you want to raise a glass of something other than green beer on St. Patrick's Day. I'm sure Jim Barrett would approve.

Jim Barry's Benbournie Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on a plot known as Benbournie which was originally settled by German immigrants in 1853.

The grapes for this wine, which are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, underwent a traditional vinification with fermentation taking place of over 7 days in open-top tanks, with daily pumping -over and cap plunging, after which the wine went into 100% new American oak barrels for 14 months before bottling.

The nose displays mature aromas of …

2004 Jim Barry Riesling Florita Watervale - Australia, South Australia, Mount Lofty Ranges, Watervale

Lime, floral and youthfully lifted nose. There is a great deal of fruit character on the palate, supported by a good acid drive. Good length. Significantly better than the young wine I tried 7 years ago. 89/100

2005 Trevor Jones Riesling Reserve - Australia, South Australia, Barossa, Barossa Valley

Floral, orange peel and lemon on the nose. Palate has decent …

The next wine I tried was the 1999 Jim Barry The McRae Wood Shiraz . From the Clare Valley, again this wine has a pretty nose, with lovely fresh cherry mixed with darker, dried fruit coming through. The palate has a delicious mint toffee flavour, coated with chocolate and with hints of coffee. Very gentle, with sweeter brambles coming through and lots of savoury notes to the end. Definitely Australian, but the maturity of this wine creates delightful experience that you normally …
