Jim Barry, Assyrtiko, Clare Valley, South Australia, 2019
(at Weekday Wines, 31 Mar 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2025
Greece's Assyrtiko grape finds a new home in the terra rossa soils of Clare Valley's Watervale region. The first Assyrtiko to be planted in Australia (back in 2012), these vines are clearly flourishing; producing a fresh, lifted elegant white, packed with Assyrtiko's trademark energy. Citrus and mineral, with a saltiness, a whisper of tropicality and focused acidity. Perfect for summer drinking.
