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 »

  • David Franz Long Gully Road Semillion 2011

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$25 direct from winery. Pale straw colour, with youthful aromas of green apple and lemon, and overtones of apple blossom musk. A dry, medium+ bodied wine, a high level of racy acidity which is matched by delicious Pink lady and Jazz apple-touched flavours, slight note of yeast with tangy lemon. An elegent, soft yet long-lingering finish. Sho... Read More

  • Kalleske Shiraz Barossa Valley Moppa 2011

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$28RRP. Now in its fifth year (half way to a decent vertical!), the 2011 version of the Moppa shiraz is undoubtedly dissimilar from the 2009 and 2010. And I like it. Sure, the 09 and 10 had the purity of fruit, but I feel that the role of the alcohol played a huge part in imparting some of that royalty. And I might be biased since I am aware ... Read More

  • Your review of the 2010 Lehman Drawcard reminded me I had a bottle of my own cellared away, inspiring a sip or two here. I concur with your review and might even add pink peppercorn and black cherry to the profile. The 14.5% alcohol is not off-putting but rather adds to the intended boldness of this wine. This is an excellent bottle of wine. The... Read More
