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 »

  • I too am very frustrated. I got into reds about 15-20 years ago, and skipped right past the cheap stuff to the good stuff. My wife and I didn't really know what we were doing. We just bought bottles off the top shelf and enjoyed. We both distinctly remember many, many bottles where we described it as "butter" or "buttery". It was definitely our ... Read More

  • This past spring I took my very first wine trip to Germany. Before I took off, I did a bit of homework: There are thirteen regions (Anbaugebiete) for quality wine production in Germany: Ahr, Baden, Franconia, Hessische Bergstrasse, Mittelrhein, Mosel, Nahe, Palatinate, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Saale-Unstrut, Saxony, and Württemberg. Most of these ... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Zinfandel for some reason...


  • Zinfandel for some reason reminds me of porta-potty deodorizer. I think if I never smelled a porta-potty I would like it though! I can always taste Zinfandel in blended Italian table wines and it turns me off, although there are a few brands I like that do have a little Zinf but mainly Merlot.It has a rose or flower scent and taste to it that ju...

  • This one probably does not hit the sweet spot of many wine geeks, but I kinda like it Light-bodied and tart.  Does that not sound like every low-dollar Chianti you've ever had? A bit of red fruit, but that's almost within expectation.It's starting to get hot, again, here in SoCal.  This wine is just fine--not life changing, not ethereal, not WOW...

  • EM-That's my kind of wine! Thanks for posting. We had this 2014 Domaine de Poulvarel and it was just too citrusy for me so my wife had most of it while we spent most of the day and night in our pool.Later in the day/evening we had this 2014 Ancillary Cellar Sun Chase Vineyard Pinot noir. The nose was outstanding as it had a strong foral componen... Read More
