Two Great Friday Bargains




Auld and Burton McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The Wednesday special continues with this Auld and Burton from McLaren Vale. We base many of our brands on pioneering history and this company began back in the 1860s and was re-created by Benjamin and myself. Same as McLaren Vale which was first planted in 1850 and has a long future unless it is swamped by housing. Good value at the price and limited to one case per customer.

Friday Exploring South Australia Mix with Bonus Grandma Barossa
$99 Limit One Case


I have no doubt the wines of South Australia are special. Not only do they provide ‘value for money’ but also mount the next step of being ‘quality for money’. To prove this point I offer this Friday a mixed case containing 12 bottles which includes the extra-ordinary Grandma Raethel Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015 which sells for $16.99. The price of the mix, a very modest $95 the mixed dozen bottles. Limit of one mix per order.

Each mixed Dozen contains:
Grandma Raethel Barossa Value Shiraz 2015 x 1 bottle
Stratus Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2017 x 3 bottles
Light and Finniss Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2016 x 3 bottles
P.B Burgoyne McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 x 3 bottles

Sight, smell and taste becomes in wine terms- noting the colour, the aroma or bouquet when mature and lastly savouring the palate.

Sight, smell and taste becomes in wine terms - noting the colour, the aroma or bouquet when mature and lastly savouring the palate.


There are three stages to enjoying wine: note the colour, smell and taste. While the taste is the point of the beverage, start by examining the colour, then swirl to let the aroma lift as these two impressions will tell you what to expect when you drink.

Dip your finger tip into a red and let a drop spread on absorbent paper as with experience you will gain great accuracy in guessing the age of a wine, essential if served masked. The red and browner colours differentiate into diffuse rings which help in deciding whether the wine is 5, 10, or even 20 years old.

With experience you will also pick up clues about how well the wine has been cellared as the same wine from a moderately, cool cellar compared to that from a much colder cellar will show different degrees of aging.
If the ageing advances too quickly, a common problem in a warm country like Australia, that wine will never reach the sublime pleasure of that from a far colder cellar. Gentle slow ageing is the key.

Wines develop distinctive aromas as they age and examining the colour spot pattern will provide clues about the aroma. If the wine has been well cellared enjoy the aroma, or bouquet when older, and if very good do not rush to take a sip. Simply swirl, sniff deeply and enjoy as your sense of smell is very sensitive.

When you are holding a great wine, it's the ultimate moment, as the bouquet can be so magnificent there is little need to sip the wine, especially as once it is consumed the show is over.


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.




October Wine Tasting and Sales Event
26 - 28 OCTOBER 2018:
The October, 2018 Wine Tasting STARTS TODAY, and continues Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th October. All welcome with a range of great specials. Chat with the winemaker Benjamin Parker and sample over 50 wines. At the Glug winery, 95 Samuel Road, Barossa Valley.


South Australian Shiraz Has No Equal


Crayford
Barossa Valley
Shiraz 2016
Brightly burns the Barossa and so it should as the wines are world class and because this fact is not universally recognised they are under-priced

You would pay treble the price of this Crayford for a feeble, Cotes du Rhone, and then spend ten minutes justifying to yourself why it is such a good buy. We have it right at Glug when we can make wines this good and offer them at keen prices.

Andrina
Langhorne Creek
Shiraz 2016

Oh! How we love the taste of Shiraz and Cabernet from Langhorne Creek. A gift to red drinkers. The Andrina gives me extra pleasure because it is so damn good.

P.B. Burgoyne
Langhorne Creek
Shiraz 2016

When Burgoyne was looking for wine in South Australia I doubt he made it to Langhorne Creek as until recently it was on no one’s radar.

Its been on mine for a few years and the strength of this Shiraz will reveal why it deserves your interest.

Exploring the Full Favoured Reds of South Australia No.2

The reds of South Australia are very special. The reason is the geography of the premium vineyard regions means the climate is a balance between cooling and ripening in a way which is not found anywhere else on the globe. The bunches of grapes are pulled towards the coolness of the Great Southern Mega Ocean which slows flavour development, which can alter quickly by the intense, inland, heat flowing in from the baking, red centre.

It is this balance, constantly tilting, which makes complex, intense, interesting flavours which are best referred to as warm flavoured reds. Though a grower in Coonawarra may well disagree. Any-way this is the first mix of a wonderful new selection.

Each dozen contains one bottle of the following wines:
Colton & Hewett McLaren Vale Cabernet 2014
Crayford Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016
Cameron Country 'Red Post' Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Princeland Watch Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Crayford Barossa Valley Cabernedro 2016
Hope Farm McLaren Vale Shiraz 2015
Andrina Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2016
Light & Finniss South Australia Adelaidean Dry Red Blend 2012
Mount Eagle Eden Valley Shiraz 2013
Kincraig Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 x 1
Langdorf 'Kaldukee' Barossa Valley Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2012
Village Belle Barossa Valley Grenache 2016

It's All Barossa Valley - 100% Guaranteed No.5

The Australian press, tourist agencies and P.R. companies all agree that the most popular wine region, the most recognised, is the Barossa Valley. The late, great Chef Joel Rubuchon was famous for his mashed potatoes which contained 25% butter. ‘No one who tasted his recipe, made with 25 per cent butter, could forget the experience’. This reads like a proxy for the Barossa Valley, not just a warm climate red but one exploding with 25% more flavour.

Each dozen contains one bottle of the following wines:
Grandma Raethel Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
Bengalee Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
Goat Square Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016
Crayford Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016
Karrawirra Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Kitts Creek Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2015
Goat Square Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2016
Goat Square Barossa Valley Grenache 2016
Langdorf 'Kaldukee' Barossa Valley Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2012
Crayford Barossa Valley Mataro 2014
Bengalee Barossa Valley Shiraz Mataro 2014
