We have just received a small amount of the newly released 2012 Jim Barry Armagh Shiraz. I tried it last week when it was released and it was incredibly good. Full-bodied, dark-fruited and immensely powerful. It had a great deal of presence and palate weight and a lot of fine-grained texture too. It looked surprising open for a relatively young wine and this seems to be something that Peter Barry has sought to achieve in recent years. He has toned down the alcohol and focused on expressing fresh natural acidity which has really enhanced the wine and made it slightly more approachable from a younger age. FWC.
