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 »

He did rate it 91pts so he does see the value of letting it settle down over time.  Stonestreet 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon MonolithAlexander Valley, SonomaRed wine from United StatesDrinking window: 2018 - 2025The appropriately-named 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Monolith is a true powerhouse.

  • Also looking good was this earlier circular from Chambers Street. Oregon this time. Keep scanning down the list, Cameron makes good juice at several levels.    Linus the dog, barrels aging in the cellar, and Tom Sivilli and John Paul bottling the 2016 Rosé. Linus the dog is a ruffian purple heeler (cross of a blue and red heeler), and the protog... Read More

  • Al,Canoehead (cellar tracker handle) was there!  He just completed his level 3 WSET this year in Tuscany (lucky guy!).  He actually said the Red Icon was the wine of the night.  Maybe we just had cab sav burnout! I gave you the 2010 (or 11?) Painted Rock Red Icon, which unfortunately (both 10 and 11) were not good vintages for BC generally, thou... Read More

  • EM - I thought you already turned the corner on Pinot Noir, just needing to try a few Oregon Pinot's.I'm not sure I understand this comment, Al.  Let me try to give my general opinion on Pinot Noirs.  Keep in mind, though, this opinion is evolving and may change, tomorrow.I really think that store shelves are awash with mediocre-to-bad Pinot Noi...

  • I love blind tastings but I'm usually the one pouring so I know which is which.  Those cabs look delicious and it makes me look forward to an upcoming Cabernet Sauvignon wine tasting party on the Saturday after our Thanksgiving - just a few weeks.  Again it will be at a friends house but I'll be pouring the wines.  Please tell us more about the ...

  • Lots of up front red fruit in this one that I had last night: A Grenache, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah blend.  I think the predominant component grape is the Grenache.  So, this is not as big a wine that would have had mostly Zin or PS.  It's just not a very complex or sophisticated wine.  On the other hand, for a clean-out-the-refrigerator day, it w...

  • Have you been to Burgundy before? Lyon deserves a day or more (far more) for its fantastic food markets and restaurants. After that I'd focus on one area rather than try to cover the whole region. Duncan's suggestions are good.Do you want to see the established, famous and pricier areas (the Cote d'Or, or communes in the Cote de Beaune and Cote ... Read More

  • The red wines of Austria are an underappreciated jewel of the wine world. Two-thirds of Austria’s vineyard land is dedicated to white varieties. The remaining one-third belongs to red. The red wines of Austria are a closely guarded secret among wine lovers, but demand is on the rise. Vineyard area for red wine grapes has doubled over the past fe... Read More

  • Hi guys, I'm here again for some advice on wine travel: I will be in Lyon this November for 4 days (well, 3 and 1/2) and I was thinking about trying to hit a couple of caves. I will not be driving, which makes it tricky, but not afraid of taking trains, buses, Bla Bla Car, Uber, etc... Also not *totally* opposed to tours... I know, beggars can't... Read More
