We are forever on the lookout for old vine material in the Adelaide Plains, so it was with great delight that Domenic stumbled across a 50 year old planting along the banks of the Gawler River. Truly a great example of old school viticulture, planted and nurtured by the Manno family, we're delighted to welcome it into the Old Plains family. There is also a good whack of shiraz here aswell. Small berries and loose bunches, so vintage twenty ten looks the goods. Not all good news though, two of our previous old vine vineyards have gone the way of the developer, soon to be villa rash (drinkster term for housing), these two small vineyards were at Munno Para West. Hardly iconic territory, but we loved them none the less. Sad to see them go, seems the local council views these blocks like dominos, once one goes the rest will follow. Allegedly an adjacent block was subdivide forcing the neighbouring vineyard to be revalued as villa block, the council rate increase was supposedly so huge, no amount of shiraz was going to cover the increase.

    Big, bold, and peppery. This goes extremely well with red meats. Strong hints of cocoa and fruit too. Read More

I’m all out, how about you?It’s time to reload on the best summer refreshers and when it comes to summer, my mind tends to wander to Sauvignon Blanc.

  • Nah, not really. I kinda like it. ;-)Life is good here in Sonoma County. I took half the day off today to drive over to Carneros for a 2011 syrah barrel tasting from 8 different winemakers who source their fruit from Las Madres Vineyards. The vineyard hosted the tasting and made all of us feel right at home. Aside from the beautiful setting we g... Read More

  • You could put this under "Wine and Travel," but here's the idea:  dmcker responded to something I said about Cline wines that got me thinking.  Some wines are good, but not necessarily worth seeking out.  They're completely enjoyable, reliable from vintage to vintage, affordable, and widely found.  These aren't always the experiences we are afte...
