2019 Clos Clare ‘The Hayes Boys’ Grenache
Clare Valley, SA
The infamous Barry brothers Sam and Tom have been trail blazers in the wine world of recent years, taking the 2020 Halliday Wine Companion winery of the year award under the banner of Jim Barry Estate. Clos Clare has allowed the boys to branch out from under the shadow of the Jim Barry label. Top tier winemaking means three parcels of high quality fruit are used; one parcel fully destemmed, 10% and 20% whole bunch respectively. Resulting in a melting pot of taught, rugged tannins - perky kirsch cherried fruit, yet still with herb-clad spice on the finish.
