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:

  • Jen Pfeiffer the Rebel Tempranillo 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines Selection. Deep dark purple red in the glass. Opens with Baking Spice, Yeast, and Almond, then off to a grassy Cherry, 5 spice, and cigar box, ending with Vanilla, Cola, and Blueberry, Leather and Cream. Most of these carry over to the palate, but more fruit forward and with bits of coffee and green spices. Still a bit young, but w... Read More

  • Parsons Flat Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Padthaway Shiraz Cabernet 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The 2007 Parsons Flat is by far the favorite wine for both me and my wife. I am down to my last 3 bottles and that makes me sad. I hope I can find something else as good as I no longer see Parsons Flat anywhere. Read More

  • Greg Norman Australia Estates Shiraz 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I have a sinus infection so take this review for what it worth. Drank this over three days. I was surprised this wine leaned to a more old world style with limited fruit on the nose and palate, it was a bit herbaceous. It has a good level of acidity and mildly tannic on the finish. Not bad but nothing I'm likely to seek out. Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher


  • Red - one of the problems with recs for places like World Market and Total Wine is that you have to get the recommendations from someone in your area. The stores will have similar wines in most places, but there may be local differences, based on what's available from the local distributors. My suggestion is to look at Costco if there's one near...
