Kitts Creek does exist and drains, east-west across the northern part of the Barossa Valley. The valley rises from the northern side of creek into a low range of hills which marks the northern limit of the Barossa Valley.
The Barossa Valley is about 30 kilometres in length and we favour grapes from the central to northern limit as these provide the rich, full bodied styles which Glug favours.
Mataro while one of the three heritage varieties was not promoted on wine labels till about the 1980s and it is a pleasure to now see many small wineries actively making and promoting the variety. Offering a range of Mataro’s was a Glug project from the start as the variety being complex belongs on the table of serious wine drinkers.
This is happening which has saved the remaining small mature plantings.
