Friday Red Special

Farmers & Growers 'Ploughman' South Australia Classic Dry Red 2013
Grapes from all regions come in many qualities as does the wine meaning the variability or grading is wide. The price asked for a bulk wine is also subjective as one person’s idea of price or worth is different to another's. Hence there is no official grading which is good for us as we back our judgement and we are good. In essence that is the idea behind the Farmers and Growers range of wines. In my view all of them are bargains and do not hesitate over our latest offering.



Value in Full Flavoured South Australian

Farmers & Growers
'Ploughman'
South Australia
Classic Dry Red 2013


The Ploughman is 100% from premium regions of South Australia from the large sweep of vineyards grown between the Southern Flinders and Kangaroo Island. I have little doubt that this is one of the great wine region on earth.

We buy parcels of wine every vintage and these accumulate over many vintages to become our precious reserves or holdings of bulk wine. From this stock we blend wines that are special for the prices asked.

This Ploughman then represents these discoveries of wines we think were undervalued in the market place The Ploughman contains a large percentage of Cabernet but also other varieties and the flavour has been lifted with a small amount of wine from younger vintages

We want deep colours and full flavours as that is our style while the hard part is to add some mystery to the taste and this is often found by the addition of a less common variety such as Mataro or an Italian variety. We made just over 100 cases.

You can buy really good small volumes of bulk wine at low prices in but there are no big volumes of the quality that appeals to us.

Many years have passed since I last spent a week in Sydney so I was eager to catch up with city developments and the retail scene. First stop was to see what Justin Hemmes had done with the Newport Arms and while the night was chilly and wet it confirmed why he was king of the fashionable pub scene. The glass of house Chardonnay was all I expected.

A shopping trip was needed but I insisted on one item of culture, a quick visit to the Australian (Sydney) Museum. In general this museum struggles but on the first floor is a room of perfection, the Albert Chapman mineral collection where every specimen is the best of its kind, though popularity is zero.

With that out of the way shopping commenced at the Queen Victoria Building and proceeded at leisure with the general direction towards Circular Quay. The coloured bags multiplied but my delight came at Myers where nifty work moved the shoppers from the pop perfumes and fragrances to the Guerlain display where I had found treasures on special. I know a lot about perfumes and my thoughts are at http://www.glug.com.au/index_books.php?sec=books

Late afternoon and exhausted we had reached Argyle Street at The Rocks with a review of Sake Restaurant Bar which read, ‘buzzy and contemporary’. That’s us so in we went and an initial scepticism, the staff were having a breather after the lunch time crowd, was followed by outstanding professionalism.
I have always liked The Rocks area so next day I explored Barangaroo and what has already been completed is brilliant.

In summary the transport ticketing works, the crowds were fascinating, and the show is worth the money.

At Glug making the show worth the money is what we constantly think about. The winemakers Benjamin and Greg are cooking up a few ideas as while change can be forced on any business its better to explore it yourself.

This applies to customers as well though since you are on-line you are already changing while you explore.


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.





Kitts Creek
Barossa Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I'm not a believer in the idea that each grape variety reaches some ideal of perfection within a narrow climate-weather range. Rather I see a broad range of flavours as best suited to the varied tastes of those who fancy good wine.

I refer of course to the view that a cool, maritime climate brings out the best in Cabernet Sauvignon. Yet I have enjoyed Lakes Folly Cabernets and the best of the Clare Valley and the Barossa Valley and the more variety the better, from warm or cool regions. Of course you must try Bordeaux, Coonawarra, and Margaret River but I have no doubt that a Barossa Valley Cabernet is also a great wine.

I have fond memories of Penfolds Barossa Cabernets, those from the Wolf Blass premium colour range, and startling mature Orlando Cabernets from the 1950s. Thus when given the chance to take a few tonnes of Cabernet from 2015 we leapt at the opportunity to increase our holdings.

The result is this fabulous wine, plush and fruity and dripping with intense flavours-how can you go wrong.

Goat Square
Barossa Valley
Shiraz 2015

The Goat is one of our special wines. The Barossa Valley is a small, rare, unique piece of the earths crust and only from this spot do you get red wines which display such a powerful and unusual concentration of mid palate weight.

At times the fruit is so intense as to appear sweet a feature which can make wines which live for 50 years.

The Goat Square wines come from a group of vineyards in the northern Barossa and any that look more interesting and intense than others are separated for the Goat.

The wine is named after Goat Square which is an historic location in the centre of Tanunda which in the 1840s to 1860s was a weekend market place, particularly for livestock.

This is the 8th vintage we have released and the first bottling of 260 cases. The winemaker is Benjamin Parker.

This Shiraz is what the Barossa is about and we refer to Goat Square as the salt of the earth.

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 the 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 selling wines we can call, vineyard, grower, maker.

To display some of our new wines the Big Red Mix rolls over to No 13. The highlights are many but the Village Belle Mourvedre will thrill as will the Crayford Shiraz which is a blockbuster Barossa. However as we love our Grenache the best wine is likely the Hope Farm Grenache. The joy of buying a mixed dozen is keeping up with what we do and concentrating on what is in each bottle plus the price is attractive.

Big Red Mix No. 13 from South Australia Mixed Dozen contains one bottle each of the following wines:
Auld & Burton South Australia Shiraz Grenache 2012
Cameron County 'Red Post' Coonawarra Cabernet 2013
Blockies South Australia Barossa Valley Shiraz Mataro 2012
