In 1964 Jim Barry, and his wife Nancy, purchased 70 acres of prime farm land
from their friend and neighbour, Duncan McRae Wood. On this special site they
planted their first Shiraz vineyard.
The McRae Wood Shiraz is made from grapes declassified from The Armagh and
blended with fruit from special parcels from the family’s other Clare Valley
Rich and intense, it was considered a modern and innovative style of wine,
when it was first released in 1992.
