Winemaker Notes

Clear, palest straw color in the glass. The wine opens with citrus blossom and Meyer Lemon aromas combined with honeydew melon and baking spice. A textural and well weighted wine with great concentration. Lemon and melon flavors with a hint of flint and a saline edge. A great line of crisp acidity, finishing with a fine talc like finish.

Super refreshing, a great match for fresh Australian Seafood.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Impressive for the intensity and mouthwatering acidity, this white starts with a core of vivid Meyer lemon and green melon flavors and a hint of beeswax. A note of freshly grated ginger weaves in and out on the long finish.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Assyrtiko (the third commercial vintage), boasts attractive aromas of green plums and citrus. It's medium-bodied, plump and fleshy, balanced by plenty of lime zest on the crisp, mouthwatering finish.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Australia's first Assyrtiko plantings continue to deliver a ripe citrus tone, with hints of green herbs and seashell. The palate offers a slick texture, bright acidity and a long, saline and citrus finish.

Jim Barry Winery Video

From the heart of South Australia, Jim Barry was a legendary and beloved Clare Valley identity. Since 1959, Jim Barry Wines reflect the Barry family's commitment to making table wines with an emphasis on quality and enjoyment. Jim Barry's philosophy of winemaking was very simple: own the vineyards to develop the best fruit flavors possible and retain these flavors during winemaking. The rich, full-bodied Jim Barry wines distinctly embody this simple winemaking philosophy.

South Australia

The Clare Valley is actually a series of narrow north to south valleys, each with a different soil type and slightly different weather patterns along their stretch. In the southern heartland between Watervale and Auburn, there is mainly a crumbled, red clay loam soil called terra rossa and cool breezes come in from Gulf St. Vincent. A few miles north, in Polish Hill, is soft, red loam over clay; westerlies blowing in from the Spencer Gulf influece this area's climate.

The differences in soil, elevation, degree of slope and weather enable the region to produce some of Australia’s finest, aromatic, spicy and lime-pithy Rieslings, as well as excellent Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with ripe plummy fruit, good acid and big structure.

Clare Valley is an isolated farming country with a continental climate known for its warm and sunny days, followed by cool nights—perfect for wine grapes’ development of sugar and phenolic ripeness in conjunction with notable acidity levels.

A crisp white variety full of zippy acidity, Assyrtiko comes from the volcanic Greek island of Santorini but is grown increasingly wide throughout the country today. Assyrtiko’s popularity isn’t hard to explain: it retains its acid and mineral profile in a hot climate, stands alone or blends well with other grapes and can also withstand some age. Somm Secret—On the fairly barren, windswept Mediterranean island of Santorini, Assyrtiko vines must be cultivated in low baskets, pinned to the ground. The shape serves to preserve moisture and protect the growing grapes in its interior.
