Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
- Clare Valley
We’re a talkative bunch here at the ‘fo, especially when we’re perched at the tasting bench tucking in to the good stuff and sharing our thoughts. But as we tried the Lodge Hill Shiraz, an eerie silence swept the room. Some stared out the window in deep contemplation, some with a bowed head and a cheeky grin. So this is what wine from Halliday’s Winery of the Year tastes like. Gee, our wonderful members will be over the moon that they get access to this. It’s classic Clare shiraz, with rich dark fruit coupled with an elegant restraint, aromatic nose and a long finish. With a swathe of medals and points already, it ain’t just Halliday that digs this wine. Tremendous drinking for you and (if you can bear to share) the family.
“A very impressive wine at this price: the colour deep and bright, the expressive bouquet with earthy/spicy nuances to black fruits. The medium-bodied palate has an extra level of depth aided by supple tannins and a twitch of oak. The value cannot be gainsaid.”
Full price $25.00 from the producer.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
