Australia

Australia has an amazing array of climates which is reflected in the propensity of its wine regions towards certain grapes. Marketeers are busy linking each region to its own grape – Clare Valley for Riesling for instance – but it’s more complex than that because it’s fun to explore different expressions of each grape variety from multiple regions. Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet all come in multiple guises and then there are blends with, for example, Sangiovese, Mourvèdre and Marsanne. South Eastern Australia is a catch-all appellation, this sobriquet allowing producers to blend wines sourced from Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales. You might think this means trucking grapes huge distances, but it isn’t always so as these three states meet between the Murray Darling and Riverland areas which form the power house of the Australian wine industry. Irrigation from the mighty Murray River keeps these vineyards alive, and an awful lot of fruit groves too. The Wingara Wine Company, now owned by Freixenet of Spain, is south of Mildura in Victoria. The Murphy family’s Trentham Estate, complete with riverside restaurant, is just north in NSW.
