Winemaker Notes

This wine is ruby/crimson in color, with purple tints. The nose shows intensely complex characters of rosemary, mint and coffee. This is followed up on the palate by an eruption of fruit flavors — primarily black cherry and blackberry, with hints of mocha and dried herbs. The tannins are fine grained and supple and the wine has a long, integrated finish.

As with previous releases of "The Cover Drive", the wine displays harmonious balance and can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for 2-3 years.

Critical Acclaim

JH 90
Australian Wine Companion

Good varietal cabernet with plenty of cassis and a mere suggestion of mint; quite fleshy, supple and long on the finish. Screwcap.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Ruby-red. Fresh red berries and minerals on the nose, with a subtle peppery quality adding interest. Brisk and focused, offering vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors and gaining structure on the back end. Already quite seductive, this is really hiding its tannins today.

Jim Barry
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.
