Friday One Day Specials




 
Cleanskin Port Lincoln Riesling 2013 x 6
Cleanskin port Lincoln Riesling 2016 x 6

Two Rieslings, six of each, 2016 and 2013, are a handy addition to the cellar for specialists of this variety.

Do not be concerned about the Port Lincoln origin as it a premium wine region but with few locals and no recognition its future is decades away.

Still the pioneers are having a go and these wines came into Glug hands by a family that called it quits. They were selling these wines for $22 and what they are worth I do not know though they are worth todays special price.

Kincraig Limestone Coast Shiraz 2015
Lovely wine yet has sat on the bench unloved.

This just means that with every passing day its appeal grows as the price to value ratio has moved to price for quality.

Reds like this redefine what you pay for wine and also ask what is the point of brands.

The world of wine appeals to all types and a tiny percent take an adoration to extreme levels wanting to be Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers or take up wine blogging.

The wonderful thing about wine is the level of interest it creates amongst drinkers. I am still amazed and delighted by the number of enthusiasts who have used the digital revolution to create a blog of record for others to enjoy.

There are about 1100 active citizen blogs, enough for two bloggers conferences, American and European, to be held every few years. (Note the European event may have stalled?)

The American bloggers are reaching higher and the next convention is in Australia with a new name, the Wine Media Conference, so down market Bloggers are out, and the important sounding Media is in.

The point of this comment; only as confirmation that you can take your glass of wine as seriously as you like.
I’ve been selling wine a long time now and understand you should drink what you like, while how seriously you wish to take wine is your business, though I believe a little knowledge does bring big rewards in enjoyment.

I like the Friday specials though the Port Lincoln Riesling mix is best for those very familiar with the variety. The older wine for example has a few specialist quirks. The Kincraig is a sleeper and should not be overlooked.

Finally I list three wines I really like.


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.




March Wine Tasting and Sales Event
1 - 3 MARCH 2019:
The March, 2019 Wine Tasting will be held on Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March. 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.


Three Wines I Really Like




Goat Square Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016
A standard bearer of what Glug is about and now a staple with many customers.

The fruit of the vineyard does the talking and we just guide the Shiraz through the winery to the bottle and on to you.

The Perfect Press McLaren Vale Grenache 2018 14.5%
Experiments began over 10 years ago, back in 2009, to develop a sappy, tasty red to open after a luncheon white.

A red which has flavour but low to very low extract, resembling say a Yarra Valley Pinot, yet sourced from South Australia with a different mouthfeel to a big Barossa Shiraz. Benjamin settled on McLaren Vale Grenache and this is the fourth release.

Restless Farm The Camel Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The wines of Restless Farm began back with the 2008 vintage, the first being The Goat. The winemakers have assured me all the many animals that have appeared down on the Restless Farm, relate to the wine in the bottle.

I can assure you that they are deeply coloured, rich wines with an emphasis on being fruit forward with no wine making tricks.

Exploring the Full Favoured Reds of South Australia No.4

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.

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
