Tasting notes

16/11/2012

In 1946, the late Jim Barry became the first qualified winemaker to work in Clare Valley. The winery is still family owned, producing strong reds and whites. Its Lodge Hill Riesling boasts a delightful nose, with lovely persistence and depth. The palate cannot quite live up to it, but, nonetheless, this is eminently drinkable %u2013 zesty, grapefruit-tinged, dry, balanced and mineral. 15.5/20
