We are a boutique winery in the Granite Belt region of Queensland. As our name suggests we are specialists in red wine. We are very easy to find. Just turn east into Eukey Rd at the Ballandean Post Office and we're exactly three km from the New England Highway. Although most people associate Queensland with warm subtropical beaches, we are in a unique climatic region just west of the Great Dividing Range near the New South Wales border. Our altitude of almost 900m provides cool nights in the summer and very cool winters. The warm Queensland sunshine is particularly suited to growing red wine and hence we have chosen to specialise. Our soils are decomposing granite similar to the best soils of the Hermitage appellation of the Cotes du Rhone in France. Hermitage is the home of Syrah or Shiraz as we call it here in Australia. Our summer temperatures are also similar to this region and therefore Syrah is our flagship wine. Through experimentation we have also found that some of our soils produce an excellent Read more »

As were the food pairings...Simple Pizza/Pancake for the Champagne - Clos des GoissesSome Salmon sashimi w/ the 66' Bollinger. Some life left, but it was a case of the 99' Clos des Goisses being a little young, and the 66' Bollinger a little too old... Read More

  • RC - Tell me more about your favorite Chilean and Argentinian wines.  We've tried several, but mostly the low dollar ones.  EM - Mole sauce?  Ok, I guess I've had it before but I didn't know that what it was.  I'm not a cook, as you know. Yesterday we were able to have lunch at Seasons 52 again - they've been closed for about 3 months due to a f...

  • Al, I know that OT can speak for himself, but here is my take.  It would be nice to see others'.Acid is a very important component of wine. Some bottles will actually disclose the aciditiy--by pH or by titratable acidity.  (More often, I guess, this information would be found in winemakers' notes.)  In the case of red wine I am looking for a bal...

I think I still have one of... Read More

  • Haywood Estate Primitivo 2009


    Another recent Naked Wines selection. A real slick mouthful. Dark red Garnet. Opens with loads and loads of spice, Pepper, and raw Clove; then full Concord Grape, Oak, and a 'rustic' Cherry; off to Pine and Thyme and Tomato leaf. Smooth, silky, dense, luscious mouthful. Loads more over-ripe Black Fruit, and spice and Cedar. Long finish of spice... Read More

  • Haven't put up one of these in awhile. This time will make things more specific and real, in that you will need to imagine you're hosting a meal at this restaurant in London's Soho. It's something I did a few times during my period of busy London business visits at the end of the '80s through early last decade. The first time I sweated a bit bec... Read More
