“The Armagh” Shiraz

The name of ‘Armagh’ was bestowed by the original Irish settlers who arrived in 1849, and named the lush rolling hill after their homeland.

The vineyard was planted by Jim Barry in 1968 and yields less than two tonnes per acre. The soil is sandy-gravel and receives an average rainfall of 24 inches per year. The vineyard lies on a north-west facing slope which acts as a natural sun trap, ensuring the fruit is always fully ripened when picked.

2006 was a very successful vintage, producing high quality wines. Conditions during the growing season were favourable with good winter and spring rains. While January was quite hot, the vines remained in excellent condition due to mild conditions in the pre-ceding months.

Vintage started quite early, with most fruit picked by the end of March.

Winemaking Notes

The 2006 Armagh is dense and purple in colour. It is an elegant and aristocratic kaleidoscope of aromas, an abundance of fruit flavours; blackberry, mulberry and blueberry with supporting complexity of mint, eucalypt, rhubarb, turkish delight and cinnamon.
The palate is a rich tapestry of enjoyment and fulfilment with flavours of raspberry, strawberry and boysenberry with the closing argument of star anise, rosemary, spearmint and clove.

This wine hand crafted with the Jim Barry philosophy to be enjoyed upon release but demands a long sleep in the cellar to allow the wine to demonstrate all that it beholds.
