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 »

  • Tahbilk Shiraz Nagambie Lakes 1860 Vines 1997

    Snoothrank:

    feel that this one aged better than its fellow '96 vintage.similarly well mellowed, with rich plums and a bit of soy, but it felt more sophisticated.also the sediments were finer and less. while best to finish it soon, i feel it can still stretch for 2-3 years. still really enjoyable now :) Read More

  • Tahbilk Shiraz Nagambie Lakes 1860 Vines 1996

    Snoothrank:

    I was advised that this wine had just gone past its peak when I purchased it recently. Indeed it has. Certainly a lot mellowed compared to younger Australian Shiraz, and no longer as bold. Instead, what presented were mature plummy fruits and that wee bit of soy acid as a result of age. Was still great though, and expect to last only till end of... Read More

  • A&r Shiraz Viognier 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Naked Wines selection. A deep opaque Garnet Red in the Glass. Not a big nose, but opens with a mint and roasted cherry/cranberry; a bit of brown sugar, herbs, pepper, and tomato leaf. Medium soft mouthfeel; minimal tannins with more black & white pepper, leather, and tobacco. Opens a bit more and then cherry plum. Though a bit thinner t... Read More

  • Brown Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Ok my wine club lapsed by accident but it never will again. This winery makes some of the best reds ever. They make my favorite Zinfandel but they also make an amazing Cab. It's full of notes of chocolate and coffee, ripe fruit, and balanced acidity. I can drink this as a cocktail or my favorite meal. Read More
