Join us on the 16th of May in Melbourne for an exclusive Jim Barry Armagh Dinner, hosted by Sam Barry.
Certain names resonate strongly within the halls of Australian wine history. Jim Barry is one such name. It was Jim Barry’s drive and community spirit that helped shape South Australia’s Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and cemented its place as one of Australia’s premier wine regions.
The Armagh Shiraz has achieved extraordinary success and is regarded as one of Australia’s highest quality wines. Join us for a tasting of four vintages of Armagh, including a pre-release tasting of the new vintage, the McRae Wood, the Florita, Assyrtiko, and a three course meal.
We will be finishing the meal with a tasting of an Australian exclusive limited edition release of Teeling 17yo - the first Irish whiskey ever to have been matured in Australian Shiraz - aged to perfection in Armagh barrels.
Jim BarryJim Barry, named after the eponymous founding wine maker, is one of the stalwart wineries of the Clare Valley. In 1959 the late Jim Barry purchased land near the township of Clare, replanting much of it to vineyard. Under the leadership of managing director Peter Barry and sons Tom and Sam Barry the brand has gone from strength to strength. Jim Barry is best known for its flagship Shiraz The Armagh, but also produces an impressive range of wines including Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyard holdings in the Clare Valley and Coonawarra.
