Thanks for stopping by...
At this time of year in the Barossa Valley, as the average temperatures rise and warm our soils, we are surrounded by budburst. Sap begins to flow again, the hard winter buds swell and the vines awaken with tiny visible leaf tips.

Just for today and tomorrow I have smashed the price of this premium Chardonnay which has not been on special for a very long time. I’m an old retailer and I like to keep things moving. Please do not attempt to double guess the relationship of price with quality. Just see it for what it is-an outrageous bargain. Limit one case per order-thanks. more...

Being flexible when buying wine brings rewards. The price matters most so if you walk into a shop wanting to pay $10 it’s unlikely you will move up and spend $25. Indeed that strikes me as dumb so I do not recommend that sort of flexibility. Knowing the price you wish to pay helps select the type of shop before-hand as you are already comfortable with what they offer and the perception of what they do. more...

I see great value in our experimental Red Wine Trials as we seek to master affordable new ways of doing things. A case for $59 is good value although only one per order please. Australians become champions at anything they set out to master, the latest being Sasa Setic being crowned the World Barista Champion for 2015 while the bolt from the blue was Caleb Cha with his World Latte Art Championship also for 2015. more...
NEW WINES
Princeland Watch Limestone Coast Shiraz 2015
Tiny Amount 66 Cases
Princeland Watch Limestone Coast Shiraz 2015
Region: Limestone Coast, SA
Years can pass before we find what we want and for the Princeland the previous vintage was the 2012. Alas the 2015 will not last long either as the quality we wanted meant the quantity we found only amounts to 66 dozen.
Better though small hand picked amounts than dealing in mega tanker loads. To repeat  more detail...

Fareham Estate Watervale Clare Valley Riesling 2016
Close to Perfection
Fareham Estate Watervale Clare Valley Riesling 2016
Region: Clare Valley, SA
The Fareham has a wonderful aroma, being delicate and light on the palate with all of the crisp, juicy flavours you would expect which places this wine close to perfection. As often noted South Australian winemakers seem to ask for a glass of Riesling as much as they demand Coopers Pale ale.
The wine is cold,  more detail...

Light & Finniss Fleurieu Peninsula South Australia Rose 2015
Cooler Style with Extra Length
Light & Finniss Fleurieu Peninsula South Australia Rose 2015
Region: Fleurieu Peninsula, SA
This Light and Finniss explores the cooler spectrum of flavours being from vineyards well south of Adelaide in the ranges called the Fleurieu Peninsula. Looking back I think its fair to say that rose has been the 'next big thing' for many decades.

Sales have recently increased so we are adding  more detail...

WORDS FROM DAVID FARMER
'I might mention that all the effort of wine writers and show judges is expended on finding what are the best wines which makes it very easy what to recommend if you wish to spend $50 on a bottle. Try approaching it from the other end and find a wine for $70 a case which will delight and surprise you.'

Flavour from the High Country
Darby Lane Adelaide Hills Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Region: Adelaide Hills, SA
The last Darby Lane Merlot we sold about a year ago won wide favour so we kept a look-out for another. Luck came our way and we found what we wanted in a neighbour's Barossa winery. Ben Parker did the preparation of the wine though he was helped by a winemaking colleague Phil Lehmann. The Adelaide Hills wine  more detail...

Fruit of Our Labours
Karrawirra Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Region: Barossa Valley
The winemaker Benjamin Parker knows a lot of folk in the valley and the wine trade being a case of 'who you know as much as what you know' was delighted a few years back to be offered the Cabernet Sauvignon from the Schwarz Family, Biscay Road property south of Tanunda. The first Karrawirra Cabernet was the 2008  more detail...
