South Australia Wine

South Australia is the strong arm of the Australia wine industry, where the majority of the country’s wines are produced. Some of the biggest labels originate from this state, from the mass-produced tables wines to rare, highly prized cult bottlings such as Penfolds, Grant Burge and Henschke Hill of Grace. And in a vast range of styles from sparkling to sweet. Due to a successful quarantine against Phylloxera, which hit the east of the country and otherwise devastated Europe, South Australia can boast some of the oldest original vines in the world.

The pride of the region is Shiraz, the signature grape brought over from the Rhone that thrives in many of the area’s microclimates. But each region has its own variation in terroir and weather system, lending to diverse styles and grape-growing trends from the warm, bold, red-driven Barossa and Coonawarra regions to cooler climate, white-producing Clare and Eden valleys.

  • Rosemount Estate Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2015


    This wine is a deep purple color with cranberry hues around the edges....nice clarity as well and some bubbly goodness maintained around the edges of the liquid. Smells that remind me of blackberry, cassis, hints of cranberry, Earthy muttled spice, and woodsy chocolate. Flavors that are chocolatey, heavy berry and subtle tartness of cranberry,... Read More
