Encompassing the watershed of the King River, this is an increasingly important grape growing region, albeit one of extremely varied terrain. The King River joins the Ovens River at Wangaratta and the King Valley region runs south through the Oxley Plains for 25 kilometres (16 miles) to Moyhu before entering a number of narrow valleys with steep, well-timbered hillsides in the foothills of the Alps. At its northern end is Milawa, which is at the lowest point of 155 metres (509 feet). At the southern end is the Whitlands plateau, at 800 metres (2624 feet), one of the highest wine grape growing areas in Australia. It is fertile country capable of producing high yields of good quality grapes across the full spectrum from Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon. The region supplies grapes to an extraordinary number of leading wineries across South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, a factor that has not helped in establishing its identity to the Australian public at large.

  • So that backs up the theory that most Zinfandel's don't age well?We spent the morning at an NSO rehearsal, then went further into the district for a late lunch at Ocean Prime.  It was our first dining experience here and we found it quite nice.  Sandra heard that the Obama's had dined here recently.The performance was decent (being a rehearsal, ...

  • James, I've found the A to Z and King Estate pinots aren't half bad for around $16 at our Total Wine.Having visited our son many times in Portland we have tasted fairly extensively in Willamette Valley. Looking at my spreadsheet, my purchases from the wineries we visited pretty much start at the $25 mark and climb to $85. Read More

  • Interestingly, found a Montebello edged out a Dunn from the same mature vintage recently, though both could've been WOTN, with very tough competition from the Musigny. Two meals, one seafood and white, the 2nd red meat and red wine. Every single bottle gets my *buy* recommendation. Interestingly, was down in the tropics just north of the equator... Read More

  • Redbank Wines Pinot Gris King Valley Sunday Morning 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet tart on the nose with layered aromas of pear, nori seaweed, citrus pith and rose petals. A bit on the subtle side, this has a very attractive texture, transparent, gossamer thin yet with some tensile strength and energy behind the mineral and apple core flavors. The acidity is nicely supportive and brings out a fine mineral note on the bac... Read More
