92 pts Wine Advocate  Feb 2020

Jim Barry’s 2019 The Lodge Hill Riesling is a tight, dry version of this variety. Ripe, peachy notes mark the medium-bodied palate, but the dominant flavors are of lime zest, and the wine finishes long and crisp. It may be enjoyed young or aged a decade or more. Drink: 2019-2030.

91 pts Decanter Sept 2020

JIm’s son Peter and grandson Tom are the master craftsmen at this multi-awarded winery, known particularly for sublime Riesling and Shiraz. This bottling is a familiar face on the UK high street and a great-value buy. It’s classic Clare in flavour: steely, crisp and vibrant, packed with tangy lime, jasmine blossom and nectarine sweetness on the finish. Drinking Window: 2020-2025.

Winemaker Notes

The wine displays a brilliant pale straw in the glass. Lifted white floral aromas with lemon, limes and hint of spice on the nose. The palate leads with citrus and a silky line, wet slate and fresh ginger with juicy melon through the mid palate. Finishing with a talc like minerality and juicy acidity. Made with 100% Riesling.
