Smart and sophisticated are the Restless Farm wines and if we use one word to describe them they are 'bright'. Bright is a term used in the tasting of tea where it is used as 'the lifted taste that accentuates the good flavours of freshness'.

It was not a good idea to offer out best Barossa Shiraz special for many a year on Good Friday. Too much else was happening; thus to my surprise there is enough stock to repeat as this Monday's Big Red, though this is it. Stock up and enjoy as this will be your best red drinking over the next few months. .. more...

It seems my Friday special was lost amongst the holiday activities so it continues for the weekend. It is likely the best weekend special we have ever done. Always grab cheap, authentic Barossa Shiraz when it is offered as under $10 as it is rare. This Crayford was not made from a cheap parcel of Shiraz. It was made by Benjamin Parker from grapes we purchase and has gone through all the rigorous checks that all his wines must pass. See it for what it is-a sensational Barossa Valley Shiraz bargain. Please note, be reasonable about your purchase quantity as Nicole and Claire will knock back large orders. .. more...

Tiny things, incremental things, can slowly build to alter the taste of a wine. Often not by a lot but enough to increases the shine or take the polish off. Yesterday I read how flavours are altered by the number and arrangement of bunches of grapes on the arms of the vine; the arms being trained out laterally from the trunk along wires. It seems this is yet another detail which must be taken into account. .. more...

Auld and Burton South Australia Shiraz Grenache 2012
New Big 2012 Red
Auld and Burton South Australia Shiraz Grenache 2012
Region: South Australia
Our Adelaidean project is now a reality and for these reds we use less favoured varieties such as the Italians, Grenache, Mataro and numerous other odds and sods to make an appealing field blend.

The twist to make this possible is that wines may be sourced from regions as far apart as the Clare Valley,  more detail...

The winemaker Benjamin Parker has done a brilliant job with this Barossa Shiraz. That we can drink such riches for such a modest sum shows how blessed we are as wine consumers.

Wonderful Ripe Explosive
Crayford Barossa Valley Durif 2014
Region: Barossa Valley, South Australia
Like many consumers my impressions of Durif came from Rutherglen where the Durif variety was first planted in 1908. It was never a regular drink but at times when I felt like a concentrated red with body weight, no better variety exisits, and then out it came.
The Australian wine business is  more detail...

We both make wine and seek out parcels of wine made by others. For a great number of reasons wineries of all sizes buy and sell bulk wine in tiny to larger amounts. They may have too much of one variety and not enough of another so it is common practise to trade with friends and neighbours. Each winemaker will  more detail...

Good Enough for Blockies Good Enough for Us
Landaus Vintners 'Blockies' South Australia Shiraz Mataro 2012
Region:
This is the best Blockies since the first release by Glug which was from 2007. The high quality and complexity of the 2012 comes from the addition of the right Mataro which is from the Barossa Valley and I cannot help reflecting that the best Mataro in the world may indeed be from the Barossa. I first began to play with Shiraz  more detail...

Knowing the source of the grapes, the weather at harvest and how the grapes ferment tells you quite quickly which batches are destined to make the best wines.
