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 »

  • Montaria Luis Vieira 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Another Naked Wines selection. Thin purple red in the glass. Opens with cherry, oak, and spice.; then a bit of pine; finishing with green tea leaf and cherry. Smooth and easy drinking. Medium long finish of loads and loads of fruit, plum, anise, and a small bit of oak, but not much mineral and earth which I prefer over the fruit forward. A bit t... Read More

  • RC - There are several 'French Family' wineries in Willamette Valley, probably due to the similar climate in Burgundy, France.  We found Domaine Serene to be too expensive for shipping, as in $70 for six bottles.  We quit their wine club over a year ago, and replaced it with Domaine Drouhin (very close by).  Same high quality wines, from what I ...

  • As the world’s winemakers look to single vineyard wines to mark them out from the crowd, a trip through southern Spain with the Grandes Pagos de Espana took one-up-manship to a different level. Grab your passport and join me on this whistle stop tour.The Grandes Pagos de Espana are an association of top Spanish single wine estates, “equivalent t... Read More

  • There are lots of wine brands out there, but only some can be called iconic. These brands shape winemaking in a forward-positive direction. They lead the charge on new initiatives and dare to be different. They are established purveyors of consistent quality. Just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity dig deeper into an icon of this type. Villa ... Read More

  • Y'know what Snooth needs?Some good wine adventure reports from Outthere.And from Foxall.In the meantime, I'll try to contribute.I guess there is a major brush fire near the Bien Nacido Vineyard where this wine's grapes were sourced.. It's going to be a long summer. A few years ago Adam Tolmach, of Ojai Vineyards, embraced the IPOB movement.  Whi...

  • Very nice wines you guys.  I do keep an eye out for the 2012 vintages of red wines, and of course ones from earlier years.  Today and this evening was interesting.  We started with beer at a restaurant (Due South) near the Nationals Stadium in Washington DC.  We had tickets for the game this afternoon against the Atlanta Braves - The Nationals h...

  • Just saw this offer from Chambers Street. Have had earlier vintages of this label (both whites and reds, though more of the whites with raclette, etc.) when snowboarding in Chamonix and Val d'Isère, and it's (very) good stuff. Downed copious amounts of the whites during lunch and immediately après-ski--great thirst quenchers, while also being ve... Read More

  • On the last night of Nebbiolo Prima, something quite unusual happened: we left the area of Barolo and drove thirty minutes south, to the township of Dogliani, where nebbiolo is not grown. While this did seem a bit odd at first, there were a few good explanations for it: This year, the annual event sponsored by Albeisa that focuses on the new rel... Read More
