Barossa Valley Wine

With a rich history dating back to 1847, a profound and unique Silesian (German) influence, the Barossa Valley is one of the most famous wine regions of South Australia and, indeed, Australia. The region is now rightly asserting not only its importance to the wine industry but the inestimable value of its storehouse of century-old vines and historic wineries. The twists and turns of the Barossa Valley are at times as clearly defined as those of the world famous Napa Valley in California. At other times they disappear into a series of rolling hills and transverse valleys, which can easily disorient as well as charm the first time visitor. In consequence, site, slope and aspect all vary widely. The climate of the region has often been unfairly characterised as very warm but, in fact, in its lower parts it is only moderately so and at higher altitudes quite cool, as indicated by the Williamstown details given below. In fact, as John Gladstones has pointed out, its biologically effective temperature Read more »

  • Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Binny's 8/2015. Was forced to use 8 oz. in a Braciole recipe, but downed the rest a couple days later. Really enjoyed it with my mom on her 90th birthday. Stood up to a stout homemade vegetable soup. I must like it, this is the third bottle I have purchased over the last five years. Usually I am a one and done with wine. So many wines, so little...

  • Cool Woods Eden Valley Pinot Noir 2008

    Snoothrank:

    2013 review. This is a nice wine for the price. It is a bit more tart than most pinots but not overly so that you're puckering your lips. I taste the spiced cherry notes more than anything. Read More

  • The Black Chook Shiraz Viognier 2013

    Snoothrank:

    I must confess that these Oz Shiraz blends are a bit mystifying in hedonic terms - from a personal standpoint, at least. The Black Chook, for instance, is heavily stamped with a nose of spiced, over-ripe red fruit - even spoiled - although the palate is treated to a balanced - if slightly sweet - rush of one dimensional homemade cherry brandy an...

  • Yalumba the Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro Barossa 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Understated but still presentable aromas of beef bouillon, black raspberry and molasses. There's a fair bit of complexity on this, with black pepper spice, cedar and cinnamon, dark chocolate, rough tannins to add structure, and a chocolatey earthy finish paired with a hint of coffee and a hint of toffee. But all of this is only there if you're l... Read More
