Relaxing in the Barossa

Whether it’s great wines, great food or picturesque rolling hills the Barossa Valley pretty much has it all. We have spent a very quite couple of days here just relaxing and taking it easy.

There was a patchwork of crops in green and brilliant yellow on our way to the Barossa – a stark contrast to the Wilpena area.

We only visited one winery, Jim’s favourite, “Rockford” and surprisingly kept our purchases to a minimum. The lovely old stone buildings of the winery are well maintained.

Lunch at the local pub was very enjoyable as well.

The vines have all been pruned and look very bare but the streets are lined with trees in blossom.

Tomorrow we are making our way to Renmark or Mildura for a couple of days.

    Ok so what does minimum really mean? Was the Basket Press on offer and if so how many?

    Hope you enjoyed which ever iconic one you bought.

    Love H&T

      The Basket Press is all sold out until they release the next vintage (next March) so I chose the 2011 Rifle Range Cab Sav, which is also excellent, plus a great Rose – everything they have is very good.

    It was – and almost too big, but Jim managed to finish it.
