Jim Barry Wines Assyrtiko 2019
Clare Valley - In 2006, while holidaying in Greece, Peter and Sue Barry first tried Assyrtiko in a restaurant in Santorini. Peter was impressed by its fresh, crisp, mineral and saline qualities. He thought Assyrtiko's ability to thrive in a warm, dry environment would make it ideal for planting in the Clare Valley.
Assyrtiko has distinct flavours, and provides a true expression of terroir in a similar way to the family's site specific Rieslings. A fresh, crisp, and dry wine with saline characters. A portion of Assyrtiko is fermented in oak and aged on lees adding texture and complexity to the wine.
