We sold NZ’s initial allocation in a heartbeat last year... such is consumer demand for this iconic Shiraz. On the back of my personal relationship with Peter Barry that goes back 30-years... we have been given a second opportunity... these are the last stocks anywhere and there are only 60-dozen (120 x 6-packs). You can pay AUD$30 in Australia so it creates a lot of buzz and sells quickly when we get it to $19.99 KIWI... it’s a large saving on a stunning full-bodied Shiraz with undeniable quality and pedigree.
The late Jim Barry began purchasing his own land from 1959 through until 1969 when he helped the Taylor Family establish their vineyards... before beginning his own legendary journey in 1974. He continued to purchase special parcels of land throughout the Clare including the now famous Lodge Hill block... plus a small holding in Coonawarra.
This 2017 beauty is chocked full of spicy black fruit, laced with liquorice, bitter dark chocolate and fine dried savoury herbs and spices. The silky, but nicely firm tannins are supported by juicy acids to keep the generous flavours in balance... you can expect those savoury elements to heighten through 2024-2027
Lodge Hill Shiraz has an impressive history of winning Trophies and Gold medals – 2017 vintage is the fifth consecutive vintage of Lodge Hill to go Gold at the Clare Valley Wine Show... and has racked up 3 additional Gold’s + Champion Trophy & 94/100 James Halliday. 2016 Lodge Hill won a Gold Medal at 6 Capital City Shows across Australasia... and Winestar Journal gave the 2014 a whopping 97/100 and their Top Wine of the year. 2017 was a special vintage... so you can expect total immersion and pleasure from this 2017 Lodge Hill Shiraz if you get your name on a 6-pack or two... it will drink beautifully for a decade.
