Tom & Sam Barry
Given that we've been known to have one or two reasonably good Rieslings in the portfolio, it’s amazing that it took so long to add a Clare Valley rendition to the list. All good things take time, I suppose! The Barry family in Clare have been friends of CellarHand pretty much since our inception, and great supporters of our work with the Frankland Estate International Riesling Tasting over the years. When the opportunity finally arose to add clos Clare to the portfolio it was a natural fit. The clos Clare patch is located within the famous Florita vineyard in Watervale and is getting on for 50 years of age. The clos Clare Riesling is often among the very best in the region and the ’14 vintage continues a stellar run of releases. Ignore the Grenache at your peril; this is one of the top bargains in our folio.
