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 »

  • Gearing up for a whirlwind tour of the who's who of Nebbiolo producers in Piedmont, I realized I would be meeting quite a few women. Nine of my 18 visits would be with or include women.  This struck me. In one generation, many of Piedmont's cellars have transitioned from conservative, male-dominated dominions. Whereas women who worked with the f... Read More

  • Unfortunately, the place with the best wine selection in Vegas is Total Wine and More.AOA, I'm sure TW has more wine, but I really like Marche Bacchus for good selection, good prices (only a little more than I pay closer to the Cali wineries) and a cool restaurant policy--you can have any bottle in the shop at the adjoining restaurant for just $...

  • Yes, there's a ton of different shades of red: burgundy being one of them. I think the color burgundy can be a good word to describe many different reds, but you could expand on the word burgundy by using words such as ruby or garnet. I would not use the word burgundy to describe deep, dark, opaque wines. It falls into a different color spectrum... Read More

  • Fun evening tonight with friends, some old some new, great food and some stellar and others not so stellar wines. I even ventured outside Sonoma just for you Al.Started with bubbles.Bubbles done right. This was a very enjoyable starter. New ultra-hip label. Left me kind of torn. The Gimonnet was in a different league. This reminded me of the Und... Read More

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More

  • Basically, they just bottle before fermentation is finished and let it continue in the bottle. Bad wine makers do it all the time. If you do it intentionally, you have to learn when there is just enough sugar left to convert so you get just enough bubbles that won't blow up the bottle.  Based on the brix and the yeast, you can kind of figure out...

  • I bought the Enkidu based on your rec, Emark.Awww, shucks. I suppose I should mention that it seems I'm on the younger side for this forum, having just turned 30OK, we'll let you play with us.  Just don't forget your place, whippersnapper. Comment on the Melville Syrah, above.  Sadly, disappointing.  Up-front red cherry fruit has no backbone.  I...

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More
