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 »

  • OK, since several people made some kind comments, I'll add this to my previous post about the Keenan and that CF.First, yes, it is a very good wine.Several people here, know that I am a Keenan cheerleader.  I confess that I am a member of their club.  So, twice a year they send me a four-bottle package.  Keenan is, mostly, a red wine producer, b...

    Wine review by duncan 906


  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • Was in the mood to open some wine yesterday, reaching for a red but then my wife chimed in, asking for a Riesling. As I didn't especially care to open one I offered a Hungarian white (Zsoke I believe) that was unfortunately corked, so then decided I'd better reach for the Riesling. In so doing, I had assumed it was a basic Schafer Frolich Spatle... Read More

  • In truth, I have no idea what any of those things are, except perhaps acidity, and to me that just means "a sharp, sour taste."  I rarely drink whites, as they seem to have very little flavor.  Remember, without a nose, any taste is extremely bland.  My preference for the wines of Argentina and Chile was just the luck of the draw when I was gift...
