Gold for 2007 The Armagh Shiraz
We woke up to some very exciting news here at Jim Barry-our 2007 The Armagh Shiraz has been awarded a gold medal at the 2012 Decanter World Wine Awards. This is a wonderful result for a wine that we are very proud to produce. Congratulations to our winemaking team!
This wine is deep crimson red with purple tints. It shows the hallmarks of low-yielding vines, with intense, tightly coiled aromas of cranberry, mulberry, boysenberry and spearmint, with the underlying characters of rosemary, sage, cinnamon, cedar and black pepper.
In the mouth, this wine really shows its true colours and while it is still very young, the firm tannin structure plays an integral role in the overall picture. Flavours of red currants, black cherries and blueberries are in abundance, with an undercurrent of freshly turned earth and truffles in the background.
The length of flavour and power in this wine, whilst still showing finesse and restraint, is what sets it at the zenith of red winemaking at Jim Barry Wines.
