Buxton Ridge

We were very pleased to be approached by a Wine Club Member to look at the wines from Buxton Ridge.The winery is of course very close to Marysville and to the quite appalling events that we are all very aware of and to then talk first hand to Michael one of the Owners and the wine maker just brought home again the truly dreadful scenes that so many faced as they watched a fire roar towards them.

Digger's Bluff

Digger's Bluff

These are full flavoured reds that we firsdigger's logot tried in 2008 and we have been trying to make a space for them ever since as the GSM , the Shiraz and the Cabernet all " over deliver " at their pricing point and will cellar well for a good 10 years

The background of Digger's Bluff is unique and we encourage you to look at that web site for the story of a vineyard that may well set some hard goals for others to match.

"Along with music, wine has long been a passion of mine. When I first came to the Barossa to start a music festival I fell in love with the region and its lifestyle, and was inspired to become a grape grower and winemaker. I invite you to share in this journey and enjoy the wines created from our own vineyards. "

Savaterre

Savaterre

Savaterre owned and operated by Keppell Smith is located very close to the Victorian Alps at Beechworth and provides perhaps one of the very best Pinots in Australia as well as a luscious Chardonnay.

No exoense is spared in both the growing and production of these wines with very select pruning taking place to maximise both flavour and style.

Production is very limited with most of the wines being allocated annually to Quantas for First Class passengers and the rest of us share in the remainder !

Schubert Estate

Barossa Valley, South Australia

 

Schubert Estate LogoSchubert Estate THE GOSLING. This 100% Shiraz was introduced to the Schubert family and friends a few years back as a non-vintage M.R.S. (Mates Rates Shiraz). Its easy drinking style soon caught on with those who were introduced to the wine. The popularity of the Goose-yard Block wines soon convinced the Schuberts to introduce their second wine (screw cap closure) - The Gosling. It has developed into a more stylish wine with the 2005 receiving 92 points from Halliday it's a fine addition to the Schubert Estate stable.

Silkwood

Pemberton, Western Australia

This is a new vineyard for us and recommened by a holidaying West Australian here for a bit of a  break and we are most grateful to her for the suggestion as this is quite a find in that most difficult of things ; a wine that over delivers for the price and that is so true of the ' second label ' of this winery : Dingo Creek.

The Dingo Creek wines offer fine everyday drinking with a fruit driven SB and then a blend in the red with both sure to please at a price of $10 !

Small Gully Wines

Barossa Valley, South Australia

This was our find of 2008 and we are so pleased that others have agreed with our selection as we cannot keep enough in stock and people will tell others where they bought it despite our attempts to keep this winery under our hat !

Stephen Black was a Pharmacist and obviously has a great sense of humour as all of his wines have a presciption style label and wording !

Let's look at the wines :

Smidge Wines

Barossa Valley, South Australia

SMidge Logo' Our name was inspired from the numerous times waiters, friends and even ourselves who have offered that last smidge in the bottle. Now it also captures our vision for quality where each wine must be of such an exceptional standard that you won't resist another smidge, and equally, as a micro producer it reflects the volumes we make... and yes, we'll only ever have a smidge available!

By Matt & Trish - Smidge Wines

Three Wishes Vineyard

Tamar Valley, Tasmania

Three Wishes VineyardThe Whish - Wilson Family have perhaps one of the most beautiful settings ever for a vineyard and should be seen to be believed!

They produce a Pinot Noir , a Chardonnay and an amazing Riesling with the latter perhaps to become the benchmark for this vineyard as Peter WW always seems to have fun getting it to ripen and reading his comments on thier web site is always amusing.

Tomboy Hill

Ballarat, Victoria

 This is one of THE pinots of Australia - James Halliday rated this Pinot as his best !

There are 4 in their range of Pinot Noir with the The Tomboy being a single vineyard wine and The Rebellion being a blend from other Ballarat vineyards yet both are such nice wines ! We have also recently received some Ava's Picking and Smythes Creek, which are both sensational.

The Chardonnay is also available in several ways with the principal winebeing the Goldfields and again the Rebellion in this series again being a local blend.
