Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"The Benbournie region was settled in 1853 by Catholic German friends of local priest, Father Kranewitter. The tiny settlement comprises about 15 mud huts surrounded by a Roman Catholic chapel. The small community’s optimism was built on copper mining, however the industry’s decline signalled its demise before the turn of the century. All that remains today are a few ancient vines, fig and almond trees.

Intensely aromatic with a mix of dark vine fruits, dark chocolate, fresh garden herbs, cedar oak and a touch of earth. The palate is flooded with generous dark berry flavours with savoury notes of earth, clove and cedar. Very fine, mineralic tannin lends length and style to a wine of great presence and persistence. The Benbournie has been created with the Jim Barry philosophy to be enjoyed upon release after a period of long term cellaring (under correct conditions) to enhance the wine’s qualities."
94+/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, August 2017 (2012 Vintage)
"It’s the thick and dense graphite tannin that really appeals to me with this wine. Aside that, a deep well of dark berry fruit, classic choc-mint, cool acidity, and a very long finish, those black tea tannins really giving it a bit of what for on exit. Formidable Clare Cabernet."
