Barossa Valley Shiraz

- Special Price Still Applies -

P. B. Burgoyne Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
I have to go back to 2012 to find the last time we sold a Barossa Valley Shiraz of this quality at this price. The price of Barossa Shiraz is very strong at this time so put this down to good fortune. I have often remarked that a business like Glug has to be located amongst the vineyards so you hear the gossip. No way would a buyer in Sydney have picked up this whisper. A sensational wine at a great price which happened to come our way.

Wine Maker Wine Merchant

P. B. Burgoyne Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015

This Burgoyne is all we like and look for in a wine. The origin is the most sought after region in Australia-the Barossa Valley, the grapes were grown by well-known farmers, the wine maker Benjamin Parker prepared the wine for bottling which is a critical job and we supervised the bottling locally.

The wine was not made by us but on the bench against comparable samples this wine stood out as a grade above the others the and as you do we pulled the sample forward. The transaction was done and here it is released under the wine-merchant label of P B Burgoyne. Burgoyne commenced business in 1871 as a UK importer of Australian wines and strode like a colossus across our landscape.

We hope he is pleased with our efforts and I am certain customers will be. At this introductory price this should become the bread and butter red yet with the knowledge you are drinking a very high grade. This is what we are good at and is very close to our ideal of vineyard, grower, maker or VGM.

Country life has its rewards and for customers this means
being on the spot equals better wines.

Blinky, a young male Koala has taken up residence in my garden and the neighbour higher up the valley slope tells me she had never seen one in the heart of the Barossa Valley in 53 years.

I sent a picture of Blinky via Alice Normal in Hong Kong for her daughter Daphne, aged five. After pondering the picture for two days Daphne became upset that there would not be enough gum leaves. I reported there are 37 gums on the block so it should be OK.

Furthermore the winemaker Benjamin is fond of the many breeds of chooks. Now Nicole has been with us 9 years and as a reward for long service gave her a rare, fighting, bantam rooster, named Murphy, which now lives in the BBQ area next to the office.

Thus should you phone in an order and put the phone down saying, ‘strange I could swear I heard a cock crow’ you are right.
I call this 'country life' and it brings a remarkable benefit to customers as only by being on the spot do you really know what is going on. An example is the bargain, P B Burgoyne Barossa Valley Shiraz, which we heard about because we live in the Barossa. The special is still running and I would recommend purchase.

Also still available is the offer on the Telegraph Road which displays the wine makers dedication to making the best possible wines at low prices.

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.

Telegraph Road
South Australia
Classic Dry Red 2013

Early Telegraphs date back to 2006 though the first of the Telegraph Roads was a 2009 vintage.

Back in my shop retailing days I was the first to see the appeal in richly flavoured, bargain priced reds and did much to build consumer awareness for Penfolds Koonunga Hill, Yalumba Galway Claret and many, many others.

Thus we put a lot of effort into these styles of wines and now that Benjamin Parker is the winemaker in charge they are getting better and better. We discovered a Cabernet, made by a famous winemaker with vast Coonawarra experience, several months ago and found it blended nicely with our stocks.

On the tasting bench the wine stood out and was instantly pulled forward - as you do, (poor wines are pushed back).

The focus then is on the blend which is from many premium regions but all South Australian with a high percentage from Langhorne Creek. The result is excellent. Rated 10/10 on my value for money index.

McLaren Vale
Shiraz 2014

We released our first Roxton in 2010 which was from the 2008 vintage. The history of the firm began in 1929 as a producer of fortified wines for the Southern whaling fleet, and after three other owners was resurrected by the winemaker Benjamin Parker. These days the McLaren Vale based consultant Nicholas Bourke and Ben make the wine.

I follow the production with great interest and apart from asking it be true to McLaren Vale, promote the idea that the wine be full flavoured and can be drunk younger. Fresh vibrant flavours which have great colour and sing from the glass is one of the defining characters of wines made by Bourke which is of course why we use his remarkable talents.

Yet wines made this way live for a long time so if you have the urge to see what will happen in the cellar have no fear. I also like to compare a well crafted Shiraz such as this with the equivalent from the Barossa Valley as then you will see not only similarities but those hard to define differences which mark the regions settings. At this price the wine is a strong buy.

Crayford Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
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. For good reason Barossa Shiraz is the most important wine made in Australia.

Shiraz of course thrives in the Australian climate and is associated globally with the country. Historically the first regions cultivated were in the warm climates though it was not till the 1950s that the real significance of warm climate Shiraz began to be recognised.

As vintage passed to vintage it was in turn apparent that regions like the Clare Valley, Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale were blessed with some extra climatic influence which lifted the resulting wines above the pack.

As the decades role on it will be much more than Penfolds Grange that shines in the Worlds market place. Back home today, however, you can drink this remarkable Shiraz at a most agreeable price.

Big Red Mix No.12
from South Australia

To display some of our new wines the Big Red Mix rolls over to No 12. The highlights are many but the blockbuster Goat Square will thrill as will the Barbarossa. Yet the sleeper is the cleanskin McLaren Vale Cabernet which comes from a few cases left over after the labels ran out. If you purchased the 12 bottles as singles you will pay dollars more so it's a very good deal. Though as I said with the first, the joy is not the price or the saving but what is in each bottle.

Big Red Mix No. 12 from South Australia Mixed Dozen contains one bottle each of the following wines:
Dolan Sobels and Hope Pioneer Growers and Vignerons 'Squatters Three' Clare Valley Shiraz 2012
Cameron Country 'Red Post' Coonawarra Cabernet 2013
P. B. Burgoyne Adelaide hills Merlot Caberenet 2011
P. B. Burgoyne Wrattonbully Cabernet 2013
Princeland Watch Limestone Coast Cabernet 2013
Trennert 'West Winds' McLaren Vale Cabernet 2014
Albion Hills Langhorne Creek Cabernet 2013
Barbarossa 'The Valley' Blend Barossa Valley 2013
Goat Square Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
Crayford Barossa Valley Grenache 2013
Langdorf Kaldukee Barossa Valley Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2012
Cleanskin Remainder McLaren Vale Cabernet 2014

A Box of Big Red Surprises

Trial Bins 510, 508, 5210, 5110 Adelaidean-South Australia Mixed Dozen
The story so far has taken us from experiments or trial bin reds in 2016 to the release of three wines: the Barbarossa from the Barossa Valley and two from the long arc of premium SA country we call the Adelaidean. These three wines sell for $8.99, $7.99 and $6.99. This makes the mixed case of experimental wines from 2016 very good buying at $64 so I again draw your attention to this value.

Trial Big Reds from the Adelaidean Project

Trial Bins 510, 508, 5210, 5110 Adelaidean-South Australia Mixed Dozen
This special contains three bottles from four early red trials:

Trial Bin 510 Adelaidean Range Cabernet Merlot 2013
Trial Bin Bin 508 South Australia Dry Red 2012
The South Australian Bin 5210 Dry Red Blend No.2 N.V.
Trial Bin 5110 Adelaidean Range-South Australia Big Dry Red 2013

These Red Trials are made from premium regions along the lengthy, rocky arc which joins the Clare Valley to Kangaroo Island and includes the Barossa-Eden Valleys, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. This great sweep of vineyard country is as exciting as any large region on the Globe and may well be the best of them all. We refer to this wine country as the Mount-Lofty-Adelaidean range.

Great wines have been produced since the red wine trials of the 1950s by Max Schubert showed us the way. The object is to bring together wines of several varieties from many regions and produce a blend at a low price which we will call the Adelaidean. The first has gone to bottling. These wines are experiments we bottled in 2016. They are authentic, regional wines made by us and as a mixed pack offer outstanding value.
