In 1977 when Jim Barry first purchased the Lodge Hill property, his intention was to devote the entire area to Riesling. However, there was a small area which had a gentle slope facing north, capturing the warmer conditions of the elevated site and he decided that it was an ideal place to grow a premium Shiraz.
 
This wine has a deep black colour with a magenta hue. Aromatically it offers vibrant notes of blueberry and dark cherry. A juicy, fleshy palate is supported by ripe cherry and blackberry fruit. This is delicately built with fine, lingering tannins - wrapped up in integrated, well seasoned oak. A wine that is ready for immediate enjoyment with a view to cellaring for 7 to 10 years from vintage.
 
Full crimson-purple; the back label proclaims that the Lodge Hill Vineyard is the highest in the Clare Valley at 440m (it isn't), and the wine has cool-grown nuances in its bloodstream; jet black fruits have rivulets of licorice, pepper and spice with banks of fine, savoury tannins.
