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 »

  • The original Bastard wine is Kaesler Old Bastard from the Barossa Valley, South Australia. The vines were planted in 1893. If you like "Parkerised" wines then this is for you. The 1999 and the 2003 should be just approachable next year, most other years in the late 2020's, and my 2008 lot in 2040. Read More

The price will be reasonable, and the fruit more accessible. If you like super premium Chardonnay then Rick Kinzbrunner's Giaconda Estate, Cullen's Kevin John, Mo... Read More

  • Wow, that's a lot of replies in a short amount of time.  Let me start by explaining my user name.  I normally go by 'Big Al', as my oldest sister used to call me that when I was a little guy (early 1960's).  In fact, she used to say, "Big Al, the kitties pal" because I loved cats back then and I still do.  So that name was already used in these ...

  • In places like Paso Robles or the Barossa Valley where it can get well hotter than even Napa's valley floors, you really want hillsides, too.You kinda skipped past Italy and Spain, Greg, in your travelogue. Definitely on hillsides in the old Yugoslavia, too. How's Hungary? Read More
