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 »

  • Port is a category of wine that conjures up different images depending on your experience or taste. The styles and methodologies used to produce, and in particular, age Port are also pretty wide ranging. There are two kinds of Port that are more commonly known and leap to the forefront of people’s brains more often than others. One is Tawny Port... Read More

  • Dmcker- here in CA we drink the best and cook with the rest! LOL!  Just ask OT- wonder if he ever unloaded those chards....Agreed- the type and quality matters to an extent... when cooking with fortified wine, I pick a nice one.  With red table wines, I pick the varietal that applies to the dish, and I tend pick a mid range one for the most part...

If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • Hard to say what it exactly is, but we've all had moments when wines were really open and "singing" maybe after a quick decant, or hours of air, they just started to open and catch fire. I can think of quite a few wines that stick out in this way, though it seems like a very unpredictable phenomenon. Also, what the heck is going on with wines th... Read More

  • I doubt that current Burgundy makers of any repute would risk shipping grapes in from outside the region to beef up their pinot.  They would get caught too easily and besides, no one drinks the best wines, they just collect them. If they do drink them, buyers have some excuse for why they might fall short.  In any case, vignerons can add sugar o... Read More

  • Has anyone had the opportunity to try the Tucannon Cellars 2012 Red Fusion? It's a very interesting proprietary blend of 60% Cab Franc, 15% Merlot, 15% Syrah, and just 10% Petite Verdot. It's incredibly smooth with a very low tannin profile. Lots of oak and vanilla on the nose with a hint of a soft spice on the finish. This is my go to weekend w... Read More
