An illustrious vineyard winery of great historical import, the Kay Brothers Amery property is planted to sacred vines which can be traced back to cuttings transplanted from the original Hardy site at Tintara. Holding pride of place as one of Mclaren Vale's first commercial vineyards, the winemaking practices at Kay Brothers have remained largely unchanged since establishment in the nineteenth century. An ancient basket press, painted bright red, is still employed to gently crush grapes in the traditional old world way. The exquisite Kay Brothers range remains one of the most sensational values in superior vintages of new world wine, the fruit of distinguished.. The essence & excellence of old mclaren vale vines»
The sensational vintages of St John's Road were generations in the making, the fruit of grand old vineyards and the progeny of families which have tilled Barossa soil since early settlement.

With each vintage, they earmark small parcels of the most exceptional Barossa fruit, to be treated to a course of traditional open ferments and term of age in the finest French oak.

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

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.
