Where It's From

Appellation / 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.

Heartland Spice Trader 2013 / 750 ml.

2013 / 750 ml.

Item #: 86402

VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2016
Deep ruby. Ripe, spice-accented plum and cherry on the deeply perfumed nose. On the palate, juicy, tightly focused blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are sweetened by a touch of dark chocolate. Closes spicy and taut, with dusty tannins adding grip and structure.
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2016
The blend is approximately 50-50 in this full-bodied but firm, slightly closed wine. The cassis, cedar and vanilla aromas and flavors are spot on, so just give it another year or two to soften. Drink 2017–2025.
