Where It's From

Region / South Australia

View more wines from South Australia

South Australia has a warm climate with little precipitation during the growing season, making it difficult for winemakers to irrigate their vineyards. This means smaller yields for the farmers, but the stress on the vines from the shortages of water also results in a higher quality fruit. For that reason, many of Australia's best wines come from South Australia and it's best known district, Barossa Valley. You'll find lots of Shiraz in South Australia, naturally, but you'll also find some great Cabernets, Rieslings, and Chardonnays.

When casual wine drinkers think of Australian wine, they probably think of the critter-laden labels of Yellow Tail and The Little Penguin, among others. And while large wine companies dominate the Australian list, there are also a great number of smaller producers creating highly-rated, award-winning wines.

The majority of Australian wine is produced in South Australia, with most of that (those “critter wines”) carrying a South Eastern Australia appellation. Subregions such as Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are home to smaller producers and higher quality wines. Victoria and New South Wales are also significant regions, and wines from Western Australia are reaching America in increasing numbers.

Though Shiraz is the grape most associated with Australia, they’ve also had great success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Grenache.

RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Oct 2006
The most intriguing of these fortifieds is the non-vintage Sun Dried Shiraz, which is fashioned from Shiraz grapes that have been allowed to raisin for three years (similar to a Vin de Paille). It boasts a dense blue/purple color, huge raisiny, floral, scorched earth, and blackberry notes, and a port-like viscosity and intensity. This is stunning stuff, but I have no idea how it will evolve in the bottle.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2008
Sweet and syrupy, a heady Port-like nectar of rose-scented cherry and spice flavors, lingering on the focused finish. Impressive. Drink this with a ripe cheese. Drink now.
