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 »

    Snoothrank:

Very smooth mouthful with just a touch of alcohol. Bright with good acidity. Long exceedingly smooth finish of rose, jasmine, almond, and a bit of oak. Opens very qu... Read More

  • Castillo Catadau Gran Reserva 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Another Naked Wines one...Red Ruby with a bit of Brown translucent in the glass. Opens with thyme and cherry and other herbs, then ripe blueberry and green leaf of something...then cocoa, and boysenberry. Thick in the mouth, with a bit of alcohol burn, but loads of roasted berry fruit and oak. Balanced tannins and acidity, great now, this seems ... Read More

  • It's beginning to seem like creating your own wine label has now become a rite of passage for the truly famous.Everyone from Bravo TV housewives to Brangelina-level celebrities have invested their time and money into creating wines which bear their name or brand.This past week, Sports Illustrated reported that championship guard Dwyane Wade has ...

  • Clos de la Deviniere Maison Natale de Rabelais Touraine Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for 5 euros from the gift shop at Chinon castle when I visited it last year. The Touraine AOC was created in 1939 [although viticulture has been going on here for hundreds of years ] for red,white and rose wines from a large area around the town of Tours. It is an ' umbrella ' AOC because it includes a number of smal... Read More

  • Al, I enjoy your restaurant/wine bar stories--especially, the pics and, especially among the pics, the food pics.  That flatbread from the July 10 posting is truly wonderful looking.The wine list pics are OK but, more often than not, really don't intrigue me.  However, the menu pic immediately above really gives me a chuckle.  I notice that the ...

  • Corsica may fall under French jurisdiction, but its spirit is clearly distinct from that on “the continent”, as they say. Read the street signs in French or in Corsican; if you know some Italian, you’ll grasp the latter easily. After all, Corsica was Italian for a solid seven hundred years before the island raised the French tricolore flag in 17... Read More

  • James it's not an elementary question. Originally oak barrels were used for storage. There was no such thing as stainless steel a thousand years ago. Oak was used for ships to keep water out, so why not for barrels to keep water in? To bend the oak staves into the round shape, the wood is heated over a fire. Among other things, the heat creates ... Read More

  • F. Stephen Millier Zinfandel Calaveras County 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Naked Wines selection. Deep red purple opaque in the glass. Opens with spice & herb and an interesting umami back; later a bit more mint, thyme, and lavender, and a bit of cherry cola and cedar. Full mouth, dry, but smooth, bright tannins. Seems like this one has the capacity to age well. As it sits in the glass, more complexity and m... Read More

  • Emark - what you describe is exactly what you would do when you present your wines to Robert Parker or another critic who doesn't taste blind. You open a half dozen or more at say, six, five, four, three, two hours before and taste to see which one is best and that's the one you show if you want to get the best score. Actually, you will have don... Read More

  • In defense of Oaked and Buttery Chardonnays I must say that "I like it".  I know the trend is for the unoaked stainless steel ferment to be on the rise and people are saying that they prefer it over the "Other kind". That may be the trend but the Oaked and Buttery varieties are still my favorites although the unoaked brands are ok also.So in fin... Read More
