With over 80 wines for tasting from all over South Australia at discounted prices, our March Wine Tasting & Sales Event was a great success. Winemaker Benjamin Parker was on hand to talk and taste great wines directly with our customers throughout the event.

I will keep recommending the Crayford Shiraz as having it back under $10 makes it ‘the no brainer’. Next I return to the Limestone Coast-Princeland Watch and then swing my recommendation to a really good Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills which is great value at $70. .. more...

Over the last four years the winemaking team led by Benjamin have significantly lowered the costs. The big drops come from the discovery parcels we find because we are buying better and the ability to bottle these small amounts in-house. The three featured this weekend are all quite special. .. more...

Almost one year ago I fretted about fast rising prices for Barossa Shiraz pushed up by enthusiastic buying from China. Glug was under a lot of pressure. The wine making team led by Benjamin Parker pushed back so todays RED DOWN special is the Crayford Shiraz - back under a tenner! .. more...

Region: Barossa Valley
When I began selling wine in 1975 it was not easy to locate and thus stock a range of 100% Barossa Valley Shiraz. The Barossa was a centre for wine production for large companies, Seppelts, Penfolds, Hardys, Yalumba, Gramps -Orlando, Kaiser Stuhl and others a bit smaller like Saltrams, Tollana and later Peter  more detail...
Region: Barossa Valley
Recall Benjamin discovered that the heritage variety, meaning it dates to the 19th Century, but unknown variety from Portugal, Bonvedro, blends beautifully with Barossa Valley Cabernet. He titles his blends of the two as Cabernedro and I find the results stunning.

We have now released many examples of  more detail...
Region: Langhorne Creek
The first Albion Hills was a 2011 Cabernet from Langhorne Creek, developed from a special wine parcel we purchased. We offer many wines from Langhorne Creek and Albion Hills range is our highest quality. As often expressed the special location of Langhorne Creek has not been appreciated until recently.

'We welcome any customer but you will enjoy the best of Glug if you like to see what nature brings. We make small batch lots, hence no two wines will be the same, as we are happiest when preserving the differences of wines.

Region: Barossa Valley, SA
The Goat is a pure expression of Barossa Shiraz with a light dose of mature oak as it does not see new oak. Benjamin does not want the rich, ripeness and complex flavours developed from the fruit being clouded or masked with new oak. The wine does though have a lot of extract so stands easily on its own.

New Release Shiraz
Region: Langhorne Creek, SA
The brand P.B. Burgoyne we use for wines we purchase from premium regions across South Australia. They are named after the real wine merchant Peter Bond Burgoyne who strode like a colossus across the Australian wine landscape around 1900. The wines are better today and the selection far wider but his style of  more detail...
Perfecting The Late Afternoon Red
Region: McLaren Vale, SA
Experiments began over 10 years ago, back in 2009, to develop a sappy, tasty red to open after a luncheon white.

A red which has flavour but low to very low extract, resembling say a Yarra Valley Pinot, yet sourced from South Australia with a different mouthfeel to a big Barossa Shiraz.
