Delivery Details

Jim Barry The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 from Jim Barry Wines Australia, is a wine of a brilliant deep red colour and showing a nose of sweet oak, blackberry and cassis fruit. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with ripe blackberry fruit and subtle vanillin oak, with a lingering finish supported by fine grained tannins and aged for 12 months in American and French oak. The Cover Drive is made with selected parcels of fruit from family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley and Coonawarra to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable. On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950.

Sadly, the ground closed in 1996. Soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. The original pavilion and pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important piece of Coonawarra sporting history. Decanter Silver Award Winner 2010 with a distinctive cricketing label."This reassuringly rich and full-bodied red from South Australia derives its name from the cricket pitch in Coonawarra next to where the Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted in 1996. Given enough time to develop in the bottle, there is tobacco and cedar on the nose, a very soft mouth feel and flavours of black cherries and cassis with a touch of oak. Rare roast beef ought to be the order of the day."Anthony Rosé - The Independent, 25th March 2012
