A Ripper Barossa
One Price Collapse
Best Ever Affordable

Winemakers Pushing Quality Up Affordability Up

A Friday special for Riesling drinkers as the Donnybrook has not been at this price since the initial release in June, 2011. Also wishing to keep stocks rolling along I set a ‘one day only’ price on the Trial Bin 809. This bold red contains Barossa, being a blend of Cabernet and the warm climate variety from Portugal, Bonvedro, which has been wrongly identified for 80 years.

Edward Gleeson
Clare Valley
Riesling 2018
The first release was the 2011 and the 2018 is the sixth. Clare is associated with Riesling and competes with those from the the peaks of the Eden Valley for the best of South Australia.

Must rate as the best variety to drink when you simply feel like a glass in the late afternoon, with or without food. At the Friday price a limit of one case per order.

Kitts Creek
Barossa Valley
Shiraz 2017

This is the style of Barossa Shiraz which is confronting to European tourists. Big and bold as that is what nature creates then left to mellow in seasoned oak is our approach to handling the full ripe, boldness of the far north Barossa.

Will cellar but why bother as the energy of youth is given up for what may or may not unfold.

Trial Bin 809
South Australia
Cabernedro 2013/2017

Trials Bins continue because as they evolve they deliver customers better value wines. Recall winemaker Parker is working with a parcel of the Barossa Valley Bonvedro which is fabulous but far too confusing a variety for any other company to sell.

To this he adds Cabernet of various proportions-hence the name Cabernedro. At the Friday price there is only joy and no downside. Limit of one case per order.

The winemaking team concentrates on lifting quality plus they are well aware that value for money or as I say lifting affordability is also essential.

Benjamin and I know what we are doing. Grow our customers choices, lift the quality while lifting the affordability.

I got a survey from Westpac the other day; score on a scale of 0-10 whether you would recommend the bank. Yep, recommending banks is a real simple thing yet not a single person has asked my advice!

Then I read this in the Wall St Journal, 16/5/2019: ‘Much of Corporate America is obsessed with its net promoter score, or NPS, a measure of customer satisfaction that has developed a cult-like following among CEOs in recent years. Unlike profits or sales, which are measured and audited, NPS is usually calculated from a one-question survey that companies often administer themselves.'
Instead let me repeat this lovely passage from last week: ‘For me the Barossa is where, I guess, myself and many other wine consumers started their wine journey. It’s a very recognisable and well-loved region. They market themselves so beautifully that the industry recognition amongst consumers is very high. If we talk about Australian wine, not just here but around the world, it’s the Barossa that is known. I think that recognisability is really important, it’s helped a lot of consumers have confidence in making their choices, because they know what they are getting with a Barossa wine , it’s got credibility and history.' Jane Thompson-founder, ‘The Fabulous Ladies Wine Society’ and the Australian Women in Wine Awards.

I guess that is a 10/10, the same score as Benjamin and I. Still good Barossa costs more so his crew spend a lot of time finding affordable wines that taste like the Barossa.

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.

Postcards of the Future
‘New School’
Barossa Valley
Montepulciano 2017

It takes a long time to alter the varietal mix of a region and the tastes of a country. Australia does this better than most as the old traditions which led to firm rules in the ‘old world’ do not exist.

The New School Italian variety combines these traditional ways with the approach of a new wine country.

Barossa Valley
Shiraz Mataro 2015

Barossa Shiraz offers a rich taste though we believe this is enhanced by 20% Mataro which adds palate weight and flavour depth on the mid and back palate.

Exceptional wine comes from the vineyard but single varieties may be lifted to another level when combined as found in this Bengalee.

Albion Hills
Langhorne Creek
Shiraz 2016

The first Albion Hills was a 2011 Cabernet from Langhorne Creek, a special wine parcel we purchased. The idea of Albion Hills is higher quality than our other Langhorne Creek offerings.

With that said the price has dropped for this vintage because of winemaking and bottling efficiencies while the quality is up particularly from better oak.

It's All Barossa Valley - 100% Guaranteed No.6

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.
