A white dry wine with clear, pale straw color. The aromas of this Assyrtiko has citrus blossom and lemon aromas combined with honey and melon notes. A textural and well weighted wine with great concentration. On the palate we have flavors of lemon, melon and flint, crispy acidity and a pleasant finish. You can enjoyed it now pairing it with seafood.

Jim Barry was the first qualified winemaker in Clare Valley. Their name is a synonymous with the Clare wine region and their deep ties to the local community to this day. Over the last 60 years the Barry family has worked to establish a mosaic of sites – 11 vineyards covering 260 hectares in the Clare Valley and two vineyards covering 35 hectares in the Coonawarra. Each unique in soil profile, climate, aspect and elevation. Jim Barry Wines’ philosophy to winemaking is to own the vineyards to develop the best fruit flavours possible and retain these flavours during winemaking. Now the third generation follows the footsteps of their ancestors. In August 2012 they planted Australia’s first Assyrtiko at their Lodge Hill Vineyard.
