Vintage is over for another year and here at Jim Barry Wines we are celebrating an exceptional 2012 Clare Valley vintage with the earliest release of our Watervale Riesling in 42 years.
The 2012 vintage was nearly perfect for us and probably the best we’ve had in a decade. Growing conditions were ideal, with rain coming just at the right time and having a very positive effect on our vines and the quality of the fruit they produced.
Vintage 2012 is in full swing, with the first grapes being picked on the 2nd February.
It has been a cool growing season and this is reflected in the fruit which is showing full flavour, high natural acidity, low pH and low Baume’s. So far we have harvested Riesling from our Florita vineyard in Watervale, our Lodge Hill Riesling Vineyard and a small amount of Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards in Clare.
To celebrate the launch of the 2010 Lavender Hill Sweet Riesling, Peter Barry and his family hosted a twelve course degustation lunch at Neil Perry's Spice Temple in Sydney on Friday the 25th of March. Sixty guests from mixed media and the trade enjoyed twelve delicious Asian courses, perfectly matched with Jim Barry Wines Rieslings.
