Winemaker Notes

This wine displays a straw color in the glass. Aromas of citrus rind and brown lime, with a hint of rock melon and floral notes. On the palate, there is great citrus drive, with lemon and lime zest and grapefruit flavors. A firm but fleshy line with a long finish of white florals and wet stone. A mouthwatering, classic Watervale Riesling.

Blend: 100% Riesling

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 90
Decanter

Elegant and restrained nose, with layers of blossom, peach and lime juice, a focused palate braced with a fine citrus acidity.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This approachable white shows heaps of lime leaf, lavender and tale aromas. The acidity is lifted and fresh but not shrill. There's what feels like just the slightest sweetness, bright citrus fruit, and a chalky texture. A quintessential Clare Valley wine that's food and summer friendly.

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.

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.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
