AN AUSSIE DREAM
This mixed cases shows off the true beauty of McLaren Vale and Eden Valley. South Australia is responsible for over 50% of Australia’s wine production. Whereas Eden Valley dates back to 1847, and is home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz and Riesling vineyards.
*Tasting notes included*
Australia is a New World wine country with attitude! As diverse as it is intriguing, there’s never been a more exciting time for the perception and interrogation of Australian Wine. A bad Aussie brush tainted most with flamboyantly obtuse examples of Chardonnay and Shiraz in the noughties, but FRET NOT!
Unique terroir, typography and soil types are allowing a sense of individuality to prevail, as we’re seeing wine production develop with an intrinsic edge by a passionate wine community full of attitude. With 5 predominant regions (South Australia, NSW, Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland) the Aussies are beginning to produce premium wines from a diverse range of varieties (over 100, did we mention?) and styles. Forage through some cooler climate South Australian producers to get started, it certainly will not disappoint.
