Victoria Wine

Victoria is a wine growing state in the South East part of Australia. Because of its diverse terroirs and micro-climates, many different styles of wine can be attributed to its regions, from sparkling to dry reds and whites to dessert wines known as “stickies.” The state capital Melbourne is the epicenter, with bustling restaurants and wine bars dedicated to local bottlings.

This state was among the first to be planted with vinifera vines in the mid 19th century, particularly around the cool-climate Yarra Valley. However, it was not as lucky as other parts of the country to escape the deadly Phylloxera louse outbreak some thirty years later, and the industry suffered until the hybrid grafting solution was discovered in the early 20th century.

Victoria has six regions which in turn have many subregions:

    * Central Victoria, which has the Bendigo, Goulburn Valley, Heathecote, Strathbogie Ranges and Upper Goulburn, with many climates warm and cool. Thus it ranges from Read more »

  • Zilzie Selection 23 Sauvignon Blanc NV


    'Pale straw with a light green hue. On the nose it is slightly herbaceous with a touch of passionfruit and citrus, while on the palate there are tantalizing gooseberry and mint leaves on a bed of tropical fruits.' (D.O.T.D). Excellent as an aperitif or combine with seafood to experienced a delight match of flavours (2008 Vintage). Read More

  • Red Edge Shiraz Blend Heathcote Degree 2006


    Heathcote specialist Peter Dredge has worked with Hoddle Creek Estate's Franco d'Anna, and with Ben Riggs at nearby Sanguine Esate. Planted in 1971 to ancient Cambrian soils, the unirrigated single parcel of mature vines at Red Edge yields a scant 1.0 to 1.5 tons of fruit per acre. A tiny tot of Riesling is added to this Shiraz and Mourverdre wi... Read More

  • Ashwood Grove Petit Verdot Soft Press 2006


    This wine was very fruit-forward with jammy plum and berry fruit flavors. Traces of vanilla were present on the palate as well. This wine was not very tannic and had a soft-textured medium body. Definitely New World in style. With the abundance of fruit flavors and the easy tannins, I could see this wine being a crowd-pleaser. Read More

  • Ashwood Grove Chardonnay Soft Press 2006


    I tried this wine at the same time I also tried the Ashwood Grove Chardonnay (the non-soft press version). This wine was served slightly chilled. This wine had a somewhat fuller body, approaching what I would call a medium body, as compared to light-bodied non-soft press chardonnay from Ashwood. Tropical and citrus fruit were the feature flav... Read More

  • Ashwood Grove Chardonnay 2007


    Served slightly chilled. This wine had a nice expression of various fruit flavors including some tropical fruit, apple, and citrus. There was a faint yeasty aroma and flavor present in this wine as well. Light body with off dry sweetness and tart acidity. Read More

  • Paringa Estate Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula Peninsula 2006


    As we say in Australia "a bloody good wine" - a style between 80's and Chablis... some butter from the light malolactic fermentation with enough minerality and elagance... lost happening here... the nose has got everything, lemons, peach, nectarines, dominated by pineapple... the palate, butter, peach jam, hints of fresh lime all in great balan...
