The winemaker Benjamin Parker works from the Barossa Valley and travels a lot from region to region in South Australia. Like him I look forward to the day when we are a little larger and make and bottle wines from many more regions. I would like more wines from Coonawarra and Padthaway and outside of South Australia have a fondness for Margaret River, indeed all things from Western Australia. more...

The wine making team are on a roll and I am being urged to get the bottles out on customer's tables. Again I do my best and recommend a McLaren Vale Chardonnay for $4.99 and a Burgoyne Red for $5.99. Or why not the sensational new cleanskin from Langhorne Creek for $6.25. more...

The winemaker Benjamin Parker has come up trumps. Two new releases today from the fabulous 2012 vintage and boy do they offer value. I thought all of the 2012's had long since gone but Ben picked up a few litres and with careful blending has created two wonderful reds that will bring excitement to your table for a modest price. more...

Landaus Vintners 'Blockies' South Australia Shiraz Mataro 2012
Good Enough for Blockies Good Enough for Us
Landaus Vintners 'Blockies' South Australia Shiraz Mataro 2012
Region: South Australia
This is the best Blockies since the first release by Glug which was from 2007. The high quality and complexity of the 2012 comes from the addition of the right Mataro which is from the Barossa Valley and I cannot help reflecting that the best Mataro in the world may indeed be from the Barossa. I first began to  more detail...

Light & Finniss Currency Creek Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2012
Region: Currency Creek / Barossa Valley
The winemaker Benjamin Parker picked up a mixed lot of 2012 reds and these have now been reworked to create several brilliant wines.

Nicholas Bourke's new Padthaway Goat is released today and the price is frozen at $8.99.

WORDS FROM DAVID FARMER
'I find imagining how the weather shifts in complex patterns, respecting no borders or boundaries, does wonders for thinking about wine flavours in a fresh way.'
BEST SELLERS
Goat Square Barossa Valley Shiraz 2014
Barossa Salt of the Earth
Goat Square Barossa Valley Shiraz 2014
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
This is quite a beautiful red with wonderful satisfying flavours. Ben and I are attracted to the primary flavours of youthful, rich, fleshy reds as long as the flavours are ripe and in particular the tannins are not obtrusive. Tannins can build in the wine in several ways. Continual pump-overs during  more detail...

Telegraph Road SA Cabernets 2010 (Second Release)

This is the greatest wine Glug has ever made. Hang on what does that mean?
