The Glug view of wine is to preserve the differences. Thus, we bottle off numerous small amounts rather than blend up one large lot.
The Barossa Valley has over 6000 hectares of Shiraz divided into numerous small family lots from a few hectares to 10 or 20 hectares. Even large holdings will be sub-divided into manageable blocks and in any case the topography will dictate this to enable the farm to be worked efficiently. Thus, what we buy from one of these farms we will bottle separately when warranted. This is hopeless if you are selling a branded wine to every store in Australia as they want continuity with the next order being the identical wine.
The beauty of on-line is that Glug can list dozens of wines with slight differences and prices, graded by quality, and let the customer choose.
Thus, we made 50 cases of this Kitts Creek. Incidentally the 2018 is a good vintage.
