Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) The wine is bright straw yellow with green tints. Lifted floral, pineapple and guava aromas are mixed with a strong presence of petrichor . This is complemented by notes of honeydew melon and brown lime. The wine has a strong presence on the palate with an intense acid backbone and flavours of fresh papaya, yellow peach.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The Lodge Hill vineyard is a masterstroke of the Jim Barry range of wines. Adding yet another layer of complexity to this producer's arsenal, Lodge Hill (at 480m) is one of the highest vineyards in the Clare, and sends down a bath of chocolate infused blackberries with liquorice spice. A gorgeous wine.
