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.

Tragically, so many wine drinkers get stuck on stereotypes and miss out on lots of delicious details. In this spirit, here are five German wine “secrets” y... Read More

    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
