Temple Bruer

Langhorne Creek, South Australia

Temple Bruer from Langhorne Creek in South Australia make certified organic wines. All of the red wines we stock are preservative free, while the white wine Verdelho is a low preservative wine. This is a great alternative to traditional wines made with tradtional wine making techniques for those who can often suffer an "allergic reaction" to wine. In many cases the reaction is due to the sulphur in the wine, which is used to preserve it.

Wowique

 Adelaide Hills, South Australia 

A very impressive wine that was recommended by our good friend, Stephen Black, at Small Gully. We were taken aback by the complexity of this wine - and its pedigree was recently recognized by James Halliday who awarded it 94 points. The grape is Chardonnay, but it is a zesty full flavoured style with attractive malo characteristics but not overly buttery like some Chardonnays.

Arete

Barossa Valley, South Australia

Arete is a vineyard hailing from the Barossa Valley. The name comes from the aggregate of qualities, as valor and virtue, making up good character, "virtue, excellence", lit. "that which is good".

St. Brioc Wines

 McLaren Vale, South Australia

We have two wines from this tiny producer - The Cure and The Fraternity, both of which are terrific examples of big, well balanced McLaren Vale Shiraz with berry and chocolate flavours - characteristics that we have all come to love in this region. The venture was actually set up by Jo Madigan and our dear friend, Trish Wenk of Smidge Wines. 

Beach Road Wines

McLaren Vale, South Australia

Beach Road Wines is the joint venture between the Husband & Wife team Tony and Briony Hoare; Briony (pictured below with Mitch!) has been involved in the industry since the early 1990’s, working around Australia with brands such as Lindeman’s, Rouge Homme, Wynn’s, Penfold’s, Seppelts, Tulloch’s, Seaview and Rosemount. Time in Mildura helped develop a passion for Italian varietals, and this followed a vintage in Piedmont, Northern Italy, where she worked with Barbera, Nebbiolo, Gavi, and Moscato.

Neil Hahn Wines

Barossa Valley, South Australia

The Hahn Family is in many ways synonymous with the Barossa Valley as they have farmed the area for over 5 generations from when the 'first' Hahn arrived in 1846 and over the years they have grown to now own nearly 50ha of vines and a thorough understanding of how to make wine! All of their wines are very luscious and a thumb print of the range is the forward style copied by many but here it is a style that they have always made and it is enjoyed by many people around the World especially throughout Asia - these are all very fine affordable wines:

Oscar's Estate

Barossa Valley, South Australia

This wine is one of the 'finds' of late 2010 with a wine that is total Barossa Valley power! It is a cracking Shiraz from Darren Zimmerman's vineyard on the Roennfeldt Road in Marananga from vines planted by Darren's father in 1936. This is pure unadulterated Barossa power and at the price the wine has quite rightly caused immense interest to all - this is Barossa taste at its very best!

 

Greenock Creek

Barossa Valley, South Australia

 "Greenock Creek Vineyard & Cellars, owned by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, remains one of South Australia's iconic wineries. Start with a great terroir, add in old vine material and meticulous winemaking, and end with extradordinary results" Robert Parker Jnr

The Shiraz series, Alices, Creeckblock, Seven Acre, and Roennfeldt Road are perhaps the standout wines from this iconic vineyards.
