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:

  • Brown Brothers Milawa Vineyard Moscato 2008


    This is our favorite Moscoto. We buy it whenever we find it and drink it soon after. Just shared a bottle at our Chinese New Year Party and it was the favorite of everyone; better of two different Moscoto's served tonight,. Sweet, not dry. A good pick to please a diverse crowd looking for something nice and cool and sweet on a warm evening.... Read More

  • Yabby Lake Vineyard Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula 2006


    This is a wine that really suits me. Lots of tropical fruit in the nose. Grapefruit did standout though (not very tropical). Rich and creamy taste with good acidity and long finish. 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

    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
