The Winemaking Team Did It?

New Crayford Shiraz Below $10



What Are Red Arrow Specials

Over the last four years the winemaking team led by Benjamin have significantly lowered the costs. The big drops come from the discovery parcels we find because we are buying better and the ability to bottle these small amounts in-house. The three featured this weekend are all quite special.


Crayford
Barossa Valley
Shiraz 2017

Over the last six months the winemaking team of Benjamin, Greg and Mel have lowered costs even against strong buying from China.

So it is with some relief that we are able to again offer a Barossa Shiraz under $10 this being the fabulous Crayford.

Landaus
'Chapman’s Crossing'
South Australian Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (3rd bottling)

None of our bargain bottlings has gained favour so quickly as this Chapmans. To make this wine Benjamin began with a fabulous base of Cabernet and too this he added six other wines.

The Cabernet maintains the structure while the additions add complexity and interest. I’m a fan of this red. Limit of one case per order.

Trial Bin W157
Adelaidean-Mount Lofty Range
Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016

Experiments and tinkering are a feature of any winery. This develops knowledge and ranks equally with tasting the wines of competitors.

Glug is structured on a tiny scale and if something special appears, even if there is not much of it, we are likely to have it bottled. These Trials are a signature of Glug. Limit of one case per order.

My Red Arrow Down bargains continue and I give an achievement award to the winemaking team, a Green Arrow Up for quality improvements. Quality up prices down.

My Red Arrow Down bargains continue and I give an achievement award to the winemaking team, a Green Arrow Up for quality improvements. Quality up prices down.


Look for the Red Arrow Down; these are bargains created by the winemaking team by lowering the costs of production. We are also buying better from regions like Langhorne Creek so thankfully not everything is heading off to China.

I’m an old discounter so smashing prices gives me great pleasure. Today’s discounting is very different to the price destruction that began in 1975 as that was about well-known brands stocked by all retailers.

But make no mistake the wines being offered; the ‘Red Arrow Down’ specials’, are modern day equivalents of those I offered all those long years ago.
Back then we discounted the prices of beers, spirits and wines as fixed price retail was destroyed. In 2019 the best way to sell high quality wines cheaper is to make them all yourself.

This of course is the Glug way so when you spot a Red Arrow Down be on alert as they are keen bargains. To give the winemaking team an award for achievement I have added a GREEN ARROW UP for improvements in quality. Lower prices and better quality is the way forward.


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.



Hand Made Wines by Benjamin Parker




Colton & Hewett
McLaren Vale
Cabernet 2014

This fabulous discovery reeks of McLaren Vale Cabernet and will bring great pleasure.

We get as much pleasure out of finding and re-blending wines like this for daily consumption as from making our rare, deeply coloured-opaque, Barossa reds which cost so much more to create.

This red gets my vote for daily drinking over the next year. wines we make but discover.

Cleanskin Port Lincoln
South Australia
Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2016

Clean and fresh with some length and purchase is recommended. From the Port Lincoln hoard we recently acquired; and in taste a bit cooler than a McLaren Vale.

This is the best priced white wine we currently offer and you will get no complaints when offered around to visitors. Three days only at this price with a limit of two cases in any single order so as many customers as possible can partake.

Bagot Station
'Captain's Table'
Blend Barossa Valley 2016

The first bottling of a magnificent purchase Benjamin did from a local winery. A blend of Mataro, Grenache and Cabernet, enhanced with Glug additions.

Terrific bargain so please be part of this exceptional purchase. It is 100% Barossa Valley.

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

Exploring the Full Favoured Reds of South Australia No.6

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. This mixed dozen allows you to sample 12 of the Glug best.
