Fragrant, fresh, spicy.
I love reds from Australia's cooler regions, and this Lodge Hill from Jim Barry in Clare is a great example. Made from the Lodge Hill Vineyard vines (planted in 1977) it's inky-purple in colour with expressive black raspberry and mulberry, violets. sarsaparilla and sweet mocha notes. Leaner and fresher than the nose would suggest, the palate offers wild purple berries and peppery spices are layered with flavours of toasted spice, espresso and earth.
