Jim Barry Wines Kirribilli Single Vineyard Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

A wonderfully poised wine delivering perfumed mint and chocolate notes, cassis and blackberry through to a long and savoury finish.

Producer Note - Certain names resonate strongly within Australian wine history and Jim Barry is one of them. It was Jim Barry's drive that helped shape South Australia's Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and cemented it as one of Australia's premier wine regions. Jim was the first qualified winemaker in the Clare Valley, graduating with a degree in oenology from the prestigious Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1947. Founded in 1959, Jim Barry Wines is still family owned, with three generations of Roseworthy graduates. Jim's son Peter became managing director in 1985 and today Peter's children Tom, Sam and Olivia are the winemaker, commercial manager and brand ambassador respectively. Voted '2020 Winery of the Year' at the Halliday Wine Companion Awards they produce highly acclaimed and award-winning wines.

Vintage - The 2016 vintage in Coonawarra was around two weeks early due to a warmer than usual October, with the warm weather continuing for the remainder of the year. January through to March experienced milder conditions in the lead-up to harvest, allowing fruit to finish ripening over an extended period. The growing season was very dry, receiving only about 50% of the average rainfall.

Vineyard - Over the past 56 years, Jim Barry Wines has developed and nurtured a mosaic of vineyards, each of which is unique in site, soil and aspect. Distinct parcels of fruit are selected to make wines that reflect the vineyard where the grapes are grown. This Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from the 'Kirribilli Single Vineyard' in the Coonawarra and shows the hallmark richness and intensity of wines grown on the region's famous terra rossa soil. The Coonawarra wine region's climate is maritime, influenced by the Southern Ocean which is only 37 miles away. The row orientation in the vineyard is north to south which allows the vines to catch the afternoon sun.

Winemaking - The grapes were destemmed, carefully sorted to remove any unwanted leaf of stem material; and gently crushed, which allowed a small proportion of whole berries to pass through. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel fermenters with heading down boards, which submerged the skins in the fermenting must and gently extracted colour, flavour and tannins. Pump-overs were conducted twice per day, with a rack and return each day. Fermentation lasted for seven to nine days before being pressed. Malolactic fermentation took place in oak, encouraging a seamless integration. The wine was matured for 12 months in 100% French oak.

Tasting Note - A wonderfully poised wine showing aromas of lifted floral notes, cassis and blackberry briary fruits complemented by an attractive earthiness, mint and tobacco notes. Vibrant cassis and red-berried fruits are framed by well integrated and fine- grained tannins through to an exquisite finish. Perfect with roast lamb.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.


What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!


What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 


What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
