Treasures from the land down under

Australia is a country that has a history of successfully blending multi- regional wines and marketing them intelligently to a wine drinking public that is more concerned with varietals than regions.

However, in stark contrast to France's AOC system - which is under constant scrutiny from marketing men wishing to simplify labels and descriptions - Australians are now pushing for more specific regionality and indeed succeeding. The success of this new regionality will depend on whether the styles are individual enough to make a difference to the consumer, of course. Australia has already tasted success with famous top end areas such Barossa, Coonawarra and Margaret River, together with a small handful of other well-known regions. For these are now well-established, producing wines of quality and individuality, whether it's Barossa and its powerful reds, the mineral curranty Cabernets of Coonawarra, or the cool-climate wines of Margaret River; but can the practice follow all over Australia? As long time advocates of 'terroir', we hope so.

Australia Producers

Australia has been through various guises over the past fifty years. Initially, small production family owned farms were turning out high end wines primarily from old Shiraz vines, which really put the country’s wines on the map. Their pioneering spirit was followed by a boom period that saw overall production soar to an industrial scale from poor-quality grapes sourced over vast areas of the country. The average wine price fell dramatically as demand soared in export markets, particularly the UK, and a reputation for cheap bulk wine has been hard to shake ever since. For lovers of fine wine though there have always been bastions of quality from the likes of Penfolds and Henschke, and we are delighted to have worked with one of Margaret River’s founding families, Voyager Estate, for many years, and whose wines have always been marked by delicacy and a distinctly old-world restraint. In the Barossa Valley, Mountadam have an enviable spread of some of the regions highest and most impressive vineyards, and they continue to innovate and release a range of delicious, authentic South Australian wines.

Appellations of Australia

The Barossa Valley is still the powerhouse behind Australian wine production. It has a warm, dry climate that is generally consistent year on year, making it the perfect region for commercial grape growing and wine production on scale. Nevertheless, it is also the home to some of the world’s oldest vineyards. Often wild and untrained, they are capable of turning out beautifully silky, intense and dramatic Shirazes. Neighbouring the Barossa to the south are the Adelaide Hills, a cooler region famed for bright, crisp Chardonnays, while to the east Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are leading the charge with a mix of Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. Margaret River in Western Australia has a more maritime climate and produces wonderfully vibrant Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blends, as well as fresh European inspired Cabernets. Riesling has found its home in the Eden and Clare Valleys in South Australia, while the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula are proving themselves very handy with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Tasmania is one of the most exciting regions in Australia, benefitting as it does from a distinctly cooler climate, making it the leading region for premium sparkling wine production, as well as elegant Pinot and Chardonnays.

Grape Varieties of Australia

Specialising in spicy Shiraz, captivating Cabernet, and charismatic Chardonnay, there is nevertheless a huge range of grape varieties grown across this enormous country, encompassing near-all of the most widely known. There is even a trend towards Spanish and Italian varietals such as Tempranillo, Nebbiolo and Barbera!
