Fleurieu Peninsula is a wine region within the state of South Australia and is named after French explorer Charles Pierre Claret de Fleurieu. It experiences cooler temperatures than most of the state’s higher and more inland locations, lending itself to a variety of grapes and styles.

It is divided into these subregions:

    * Currency Creek: eastern, most recognized for Sauvignon Blancs.
    * Kangaroo Island: with a maritime climate best suited for Cabernet and Merlot as well as Shiraz, Chardonnay, Riesling and Viognier.
    * Langhorne Creek: in the northeast, temperate with ideal ripening conditions. Mostly known for reds with Cabernet, Shiraz, Merlot and Malbec. Verdelho leads the whites with Chardonnay close behind.
    * McClaren Vale: the most celebrated part of Fleurieu. Known for old vine releases and elegant Rhone-style blends. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre (GSM’s) are popular as well as Cabernet, Merlot, Viognier Read more »
