Friday Bargain



Heritage Blends from the 1860s (6 x 6)

Benjamin wants to bring customers closer to the winemaking and the decisions he makes and for a few months now has been releasing tiny volumes of wines under the Glug label. From my perspective nothing like the quality of these two, for this price, can exist in any wine store in Australia. Likely the important benefit of shopping at Glug. Both are fabulous wines and will appear later as Goat Square, Kitts Creek or Crayford; the winemaker is still undecided. Limit of one mixed case per order.



Heritage Blends from the 1860s (6 x 6)

Two Parker creations which are just fabulous. I tend to drink wines younger than older as the glories of fresh-ripeness all to often evolve into undistinguished, dead-flatness. I can think of nothing better than drinking both of these regularly. Note both are premium quality and are offered so customers can be more involved in our thinking-production processes. The Barossa was settled in 1842 though vineyards only became widespread from the 1860s to 1880s. You get six of each in the box. Limit of one mixed case per customer.

Each mix contains 6 bottles of each of the following two wines:

Glug Calcutta Barossa Valley Shiraz Grenache 2016
Glug Switch Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz 2016

Barossa Valley Blend of the Great 2012’s (6 x 6)

We purchased a lot of stock from the 2012 vintage and these are the last bottlings. They make a great contrast with the No 1 Friday mix which is four vintages younger. As I noted with the No 1 nothing like these wines can be found in any wine shop in Australia. Big, ripe, tasty reds like these are perfect for your dining table. Limit of one mix per order.



Barossa Valley Blend of the Great 2012’s (6 x 6)

The last release of the Red Barn was in March, 2014 which was a Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2011; made from a trio of varieties which are of great interest to us. They are what I term the heritage varieties and date back to the first plantings made in the 1840s though recall vineyards did not really expand to a significant size until the 1870s-1880s. After 1960 new varieties were introduced into the Barossa Valley though only two Cabernet and Merlot have reached a significant acreage. The Red Barn contrasts with the Bagot Station and the last release was also in March, 2014 and it was a Cabernet Shiraz 2011. Same vintage and better than the 2011 release as the vintage was a classic.

Each mix contains 6 bottles of each of the following two wines:

Stonevale Wines 'Red Barn' Bin 606 Barossa Valley Winemakers Dry Red Blend 2012
Bagot Station 'Captains Table' Barossa Valley Red Blend No 2 2012

Fashions blow through wine regularly but the real game is to know all of the wines of the world plus unfashionable is where the bargains are.


I preach diversity in drinking as the world of wine is yours to explore though returning to what you have enjoyed also makes sense. To help, the two Friday specials – six by six bottle mixes - repeat what has proved popular.

Anything from the Barossa Valley has been popular for as long as I have been selling wine. The vineyards of course were planted for fortified wine production and the shift to what is now normal, table wines, only began in the 1950s. A short 60 plus years on and it is the region to shop for wines with loads of complex flavours.

The great American wine critic Robert Parker pointed highly the full, ripe flavours of Australia and I love his explosion about ‘the anti flavour wine elite’. Be warned such elites do exist and most sommeliers I talked to in Sydney a week back are signed on members.
At Glug headquarters there has been much activity and the Friday specials illustrate what the winemakers have been up-to. Many reds and whites are on the way and I reveal several very fine Barossa Semillons are heading your way.

Fads and fashions sweep across the wine world with regularity and a casualty has been Barossa whites which has allowed us to buy well these few parcels of Semillon.

Of course you should go with the flow whether this be Prosecco or natural wines but its best to not to get carried away lest you cannot make it back to where the value is, drinking what others feel is unfashionable.


30 Day Pricing Guarantee:
After buying wine it is most annoying to find it cheaper shortly afterwards. Currently Ben and I find selling on-line most turbulent. To hold our ground I confess to moving prices around far more than usual. Please notify Nicole or Claire of any upsetting price moves and they will then issue a credit.




Mt Eagle
Eden Valley
Shiraz 2013

Could be great-I think it will be. I recently drank a Tollana TR16 Eden Valley Shiraz 1998 which was exquisite.

Langdorf

Shiraz 2015

We really know Barossa Shiraz and can say that this will cellar well, though you knows my views of the joys of drinking youthful reds.

Knotts
Adelaide Hills
Chardonnay 2017

This Knotts is a very special Chardonnay with the fineness and gentleness of the flavour coming from free run juice of very high quality.

Exceptional and twenty years ago it was thought likely the white Grange-Yattarna-would come from the Adelaide Hills.

South Australian All Red Selection Series No.1

I put together this mixed dozen to show that under $7 we have a range of hand made, individual reds which for many customers will be all they need. Wines come and go quickly at Glug as making huge amounts and smothering vintage differences is not our way.

The Big Red Mix No.16

This is our longest running mixed dozen because it is the most popular. It provides a balance between expensive varieties and our more general favourites plus provides a saving on buying the dozen bottles separately. A real Glug winner.
