Jim Barry was only the 17th graduate in oenology from the celebrated Roseworthy Agricultural College back in 1947. The Clare Valley was always his chosen playground and he made the wine at the local co-operative for 22 vintages. He founded Taylors Wines in 1969 and subsequently branched out on his own. His son Peter became managing director in 1985 and now Peter’s children are all working in the family business. Jim Barry was instrumental in cementing the Clare Valley’s international reputation as a producer of fine Riesling.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Very cool and well-defined aromas majoring on citrus: lime and lemon and grapefruit. There’s something mineral about the nose, too - a piquant freshness – as well as herbal notes of lime leaves and mint. Palate is dry and lively, with an airy quality within. Flavours are also on citrus fruit, especially lemon and lime and there’s a good earthy texture at the core. Firm acid structure here and really notable length. This is a direct and lively wine with a fine mineral core of structure including that lime juice acidity. Just stunning.Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
