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.
The regions of South Australia state are:

  • DV - Triton Tridente is from Zamora, a little west of Toro. It's dry and hot, kind of like south CA. The wines from Toro are usually bigger and more rustic than those from Rioja - the idea is to tame the bull (Toro) and Zamora is like the kid brother of Toro. The Termanthia is one of the three or four best wines from Toro, but it's not like Rioj... Read More

  • Wolf Blass Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Gold Label 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Opens with vanilla and chocolate mint, then more vanilla and all spice/baking spice, then strawberry, raspberry, and violets. Bit of vanilla, tobacco, and cedar and a long long finish of blackberry, currant, plum, and medium oak. Very soft tannins and big rounded mouthful. Delightful. Read More
