Jim Barry The Armagh Shiraz
The name of “Armagh” was bestowed by the original Irish settlers who arrived in 1849 and named the lush, rolling hills after their homeland. In 1968 the vineyard was planted by Jim Barry and yields less than two tons per acre. The soil is sandy gravel and receives an average rainfall of 23 inches per year. The vineyard lies on a north-facing slope, which acts as a natural sun trap, ensuring the fruit is always fully ripened when picked.
