I rose early yesterday as the mechanical harvester was outside my window at 4.30am. The house is surrounded by vineyards and the Ahrens family took the first load of Riesling off to the Lehmann winery. There is no point in rolling over as at first light the bird guns began blasting the morning air. more...

We will soon be picking in the Barossa Valley and now have a winery right on site. We share this facility and the truth be known only take up a fraction of the capacity. Still at last the winemaker Benjamin Parker and his assistant winemaker Greg Leibelt can really do their thing.

Landaus Vintners 'Blockies' South Australia Shiraz Mataro 2012
Good Enough for Blockies Good Enough for Us
Landaus Vintners 'Blockies' South Australia Shiraz Mataro 2012
Region: South Australia
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  more detail...

Light & Finniss Currency Creek Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2012

The winemaker Benjamin Parker picked up a mixed lot of 2012 reds and these have now been reworked to create several brilliant wines.

Goat Square Barossa Valley Shiraz 2014
Barossa Salt of the Earth
Goat Square Barossa Valley Shiraz 2014
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
This is quite a beautiful red with wonderful satisfying flavours. Ben and I are attracted to the primary flavours of youthful, rich, fleshy reds as long as the flavours are ripe and in particular the tannins are not obtrusive.
