New South Wales Wine

New South Wales is state and wine-producing region within the Federal Commonwealth of Australia, and one of the first to be populated with and planted by European settlers. It boasts a wide array of regions and climates from the Shoal Haven coast to high altitude in the Great Dividing Range to warm inland along the Murrambidgee and Murray rivers (a.k.a. the “Big Rivers”) to cooler climates in the Swan Hill and Murray Darling, with each section excelling in their own varietals and styles.

Hunter Valley is the best known region in the state, regarded for its prized Semillon that was originally planted in the 1820s by James Busby, who is credited with being the “Father of Australian Wine.”

  • Tyrrell's Wines Old Winery Verdelho 2012


    Clear but incredibly pale yellow in the glass. Interesting, it almost looks like water. Herbal, vegetative nose reminds me more of a sauvignon blanc. Very refreshing on the palate--initially a melon flavor but then lot's of lemon. Excellent acid gives it the refreshing quality. US$11.69 at Total WIne. Read More
