Jim Barry McKay's Single Vineyard Riesling 2018
A light, creamy wine with good minerality with complex aromas of pink grapefruit, lime and tropical guava.
Notes of lime cordial, pink grapefruit and lemon rind open up to regional Watervale musk and floral notes. A powerful and concentrated Riesling, with great depth of flavour and a silky, acidic profile which gives focus, line and length.
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. Founded in 1959, Jim Barry Wines is still family owned. 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 '2020 Winery of the Year' at the Halliday Wine Companion Awards they produce highly acclaimed and award-winning wines.
