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.

  • I am a South Aussie and Adelaide is a great wine destination, Barossa Valley is 1 hour drive, Clare Valley is a 1.5 hr drive, McLaren Vale is 45 minute Drive, Coonawarra is 4 hour drive and Adelaide Hills is literally a suburb.
