Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland..

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.
