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 »

  • These girls are more than just a pretty face. Janina Huhn was recently  crowned Germany's 66th Wine Queen during the televised contest in Germany in which six finalists from the country's 13 various wine regions competed for the Wine Queen crown. Huhn, along with five fellow finalists, underwent scrutiny and questions from a panel of 70 judges. ...

  • RBA, couldn't help but get a little sticker shock from the Chateau O'Brien red blend.  Just trying to figure out the reason behind the $109 price tag, since I doubt they coughed up $100K+ per acre for their vineyard land like in Napa (although I know land in northern VA is not cheap). We haven't been there yet but it is right on the way to the F... Read More

  • With one final nod to experimentation this year, I’m leaving you with this suggestion for fall: Try some Carmenere! It’s a variety that I’ve been pushing as a mid-weight summer red because it is a great wine with grilled meats, but it’s also a lovely wine for fall, though perhaps best used with some well seasoned, herb-dotted pork dishes as the ...

  • Two very enjoyable evenings, OT.  We are planning to be up there, again, next June.  I do hope we can do it again.I received an e-mail from Sandlands, yesterday.  I have to say, they have very reasonable pricing.  By the time I found that note the only allocation I had was 2 X Chenin Blanc.  I took them and wishlisted everything else.I have also...

  • Tradition tends to reign supreme in the French wine world (just witness the old-money regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy), but the country's wine classification system got a shake up in 2009 when a Europe-wide reform was passed, standardizing the diverse nomenclature for the various quality designations within each of the wine-producing countries....

  • Perhaps we can throw all sorts of wines in here with a mysterious WTF factor, whether photos of the wine, its label, logo, descriptions or what have you. Who knows what they might be? I'll start things out.From the opening scene of the current episode of a well-received TV show: what is this wine? Does it actually exist? What, if anything, is wr... Read More

  • Probably the white burg of my life to this point...so beautiful, with much more honey than lemon, still good energy too.Maybe a little heavy on the red cherry for chambertin, but a fun ride anyway.First time with Roumier. The Ruchottes was energetic, medium rich, and rather tannic while the Bonne Mares was seamless and without much current. Remi... Read More

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States. A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...
