There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»

He planted Cabernet vines on the picturesque thirty acre Cover Drive property near the site of the old Penola cricket grounds, atop some of the Coonawarra's most precious soils. Cover Drive offeres a measure of elegance and finesse, to be enjoyed upon release, alongside your favourite comfort faire.

On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw the first balls bowled in anger and flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950. The hidden geological treasure of porous limestone under the rich Terra rossa soil creates the ideal cellar by storing water for later use. From these gifts of the earth, Jim Barry has created a signature, entry level wine. The original pavilion and cricket pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important piece of Coonawarra history. Cabernet from this vineyard, along with select parcels of fruit from the Barry vineyards in Valley Clare, have been assembled to produce a wine that's solid, generous and approachable.
A deep, opaque ruby colour with purple hue. The nose is ambitious with intense perfumes of black currant fruit, mulberry, raspberry and boysenberry. These aromas are full of complexity, offering scents of cedar, mint and eucalypt. The palate is recognizably Jim Barry Cabernet and completely satisfying, showing the hallmark characters of cassis, menthol and satsuma plum. The tannins are integrated and well structured.
