Australian Wine Returns to Its Roots
Barossa Valley and Eden Valley
This is an ancient land—it was settled by Aboriginal communities thousands of years ago—and the diversity of soils and the differences in microclimate from one hillside to the next allow an incredible tapestry of wine styles to be produced there.
Journey to this coastal region—less than an hour’s drive from Adelaide—to try heavy hitters like Grenache and Shiraz, but also grape varieties from around the world.
The Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley
Go to these regions in Victoria for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay boasting remarkable wines of detail and complexity.
This is Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay country, and while there are certainly other varieties being successfully grown and vinified, the big two find a depth of expressiveness and an elegance of longevity that is rare anywhere in the world.
