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 »

Victoria on Snooth

  • Sam Plunkett "Whitegate Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Outstanding. Inky purple in the glass w/small separation ring. A chalky minerality, blackberries and an uplifting boost of spice and pepper boost the back end. Chocolate notes fill in the blanks. Mild tannins w/well balanced lead to a juicy but relatively short aftertaste. Drink now - Paul 89 points Read More

  • Redbank the Long Paddock Shiraz Victoria Australia 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Had this at dinner last evening not bad, not terrific, a bit of herbs and spices. Balanced and very easy to drink, with soft tannins and low acidity. Perhaps just too easy, but could very easily serve as a daily drinker. I see it was listed as a Wine Enthusiast 'Top 100 Best Buys' for 2013. Read More
