Barossa Valley Reds


In the sea of enjoyable, easy drinking reds that Australia offers the consumer it is all too easy to overlook the premium quality wines that cost only a little more but offer so much more in quality in enjoyment.

These two premium Australian reds are absolutely delicious to drink now and sing with the ripe fruit characteristic of the Barossa Valley.  They represent truly remarkable value for money for wines of this quality.

Smalltown Vineyards is a merger between two famous Barossa winemakers Rolf Binder of Magpie Estate and Tom White.

They encompass vineyards from many of the Barossa’s prized districts – Gomersal, Kalimna,  Eden Valley and beyond.  Working with exceptional vineyards these two great winemakers use minimal intervention, a basket press where relevant and natural ferments in open top fermenters with careful use of oak ageing.  In doing so they capture the magical flavours of the Barossa.

We are offering a Mixed Half Dozen of 3 bottles of each of:

The Black Craft Shiraz 2020                                 £9.95
Good Luck Club Cabernet Sauvignon 2021.     £11.50

Smalltown Vineyards, Barossa Valley

The Black Craft Shiraz 2020
Barossa, South Australia

Made from 100% Shiraz, this wine is sourced from the finest available vineyard sites across the premium Northern Barossa Valley. It is fermented in open fermentors, then aged 11 months in a variety of oaks, all American and French, of which around 35% is new.

Deep purple in colour, it has an enticing nose of blackberries with a hint of vanilla pod. It is bursting with succulent, ripe blackberry fruit with a sprinkling of black pepper, but it is beautifully fresh – not a hint of jam.  There are soft tannins, good acidity, a touch of liquorice at the finish and great length. Totally seductive and fantastic value for this quality!




Good Luck Club Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Barossa, South Australia
This is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 28-year old Barossa valley vines.  It is then aged for 24 months in a mix of new and 3-year-old oak barrels.

It is a deep purple in colour, and has a gorgeous nose of cassis and eucalyptus with a trace of cedar.  In the mouth it is silky with ripe, concentrated fruit abounding with cassis and summer pudding flavours and a hint of lead pencils. The tannins are soft and for all its concentration the wine is very elegant.  There is good length.  Deliciously easy to enjoy!
