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 »

  • Very possible Red, that some or many the Malbec vines in Mendoza were grafted from Cahors France. In Cahors, they usually blend in some Merlot which makes it interesting. The wines are typically a little lower in alcohol, maybe a little more tannin and acidity.However, what makes Mendoza a special place for Malbec is the elevation. It's unfortun... Read More

  • Hello wine lovers. Im a newby. I find that I love a Mendoza Malbec  like its oxygen and Nineteen Crimes cab is to die for ( althouth not in the way some of the criminals may have in route to australia) . I also am enjoying some less complex but well balanced red blends like Apothic. My favorite malbec so far is Alamos and Cigar Box is pretty nic... Read More

  • RBA, looks like a great trip, glad to see you're not wasting any time! By the way, are there any oysters left in VA?Trying to make some room in the wine fridge for the last of the fall shipments so I grabbed this bottle from the "have at it" shelf. This is one of the last of the gifted bottles from a neighbor that passed away a few years ago. Ha... Read More

  • Haven't had many '13 Burgs, so this is helping me get a feel for the vintage...Nice half full nose of lifted dark red fruits, earth, and wood shavings. Palate is very fresh, barely ripe red fruits, with just a slight vegetal note. Medium tannin and intensity toward the back, leading to a balanced, persistent finish. Nicely done. Read More

  • Going back to that 2005 Talty, Mike gave me one of those a few years ago to prove that the wines aged and improved.  Unfortunately, he gave me just one--I know, I'm an ingrate!--so I drank it with 8 or 9 years on it.  It could have gone much longer.  The key is that it's a field blend like Ridge, with a little PS and maybe some carignane.  The P...

  • "As of 2010, Airén was estimated to be the world's 3rd most grown grape variety in terms of planted surface, at 252,000 hectares (620,000 acres), down from 306,000 hectares (760,000 acres) in 2004, where it held 1st place, although it is almost exclusively found in Spain." (from Wikipedia)Think the ranking would be lower if it was by number of v... Read More

  • And you can always get some Barbera, which can age well and which will be a lot less money than Barolo or Barbaresco. Well, at least usually it will be. And Nebbiolo is made in other areas as well, so depending on what you're looking for, you can buy a few bottles of something from Valtellina or Gattinara, both of which can produce very nice Neb...

  • DM - as you know, it's originally from Spain in Aragon. It was the most widely planted red variety in the world just a few years ago and may still be. It was also the most planted red grape in Spain, which still has like twice as much as anywhere else in the world. Relatively speaking they have even more Monastrell, but that's a different story....
