Fabulous New Ultra Value Red
Borderland Estates 'Tumbleweed' South Australia Classic Dry Red 2013
Region: South Australia
I can now place myself in the category that it's never too old to learn. Not only has the business matured but so has the winemaker Benjamin and coming up fast is Greg the assistant winemaker.
Spending 2015 and 2016 pondering how to make better value Big Red specials has turned up some new ideas. It shows in this Borderland though of great help is a special parcel of red we purchased from a grower down in Langhorne Creek which sits in the background.
We find you can make tasty interesting wines and sell at great prices if the volumes are small though we feel for those who have to gear up and make say 100,000 cases as you have to turn to the Riverland to get the base volume making the job very hard.
You will discover good value in the Tumbleweed though its place is to be part of your regular drinking.
