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.
