New Great Value Bush Telegraph
Borderland Estates 'Bush Telegraph' South Australia Classic Dry Red 2013
Region: South Australia
I believe all who drink wine have admiration for those who labour hard to make the greatest wines, some of which sell for $1000 a bottle. At times we may envy those who can afford the wines.
Back in the day to day world over 30% of wine is sold in casks and much of this is very good.
In-between these two extremes, yet under $12, is where we enjoy ourselves and spend a lot of time crafting wonderful tasty reds and whites.
Large mistakes are made when wine is graded and then sold and we think we are particularly good at seeing what others miss. At least one of the reasons is because we are prepared to buy many tiny amounts whereas a large business only deals in say 200,000 litre amounts.
Smallness is good as it preserves the differences and ecvery wine made is different to every other.
This Borderland shows our strength which is to duplicate the boldness of a Barossa Shiraz for a much lower price. You can’t of course but the art is to see how close you can go. With that said the Bush Telegraph is wrapped around a core of Cabernet.
