Cabernet Sauvignon
First appeared in Australia at the beginning of the 1830s and today, it enjoys much success in many regions across the country, particularly in the Yarra Valley and Margaret River.

Merlot has proved a good investment for many wine growers by providing a backup for other crops that may not develop high yields in certain weather conditions.

Red Wine Styles of Australia

Semillon has always been at home in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. Its has flavour of honey and apricot. 

Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris
Over the past two decades, Pinot Grigio and Pint Gris have grown popularity in Australia and are now firmly placed in mainstream white wine market.

The Verdelho variety has found most success in Australia in the Margaret River region of Western Australia and the Hunter Valley in New South Wales.

White Wine Styles of Australia

Style of Wine Produced

Great Dividing Range in Eastern Australia:

This is a major landform consisting of mountains and uplands.
It brings height and acts as a barrier to tropical rain systems that come down the east coast effectively creating a rain shadow.
The only major wine region on ’wrong’ side of range is the Hunter Valley which typically experiences mid-summer and harvest rain

Geographical ranges

Mount Lofty Ranges in South Australia:

This range makes viticulture possible in Adelaide Hills, Clare, Barossa and Eden Valleys

Geographical ranges

Weather patterns:
Prevailing cool weather patterns from the cold Southern Ocean moderate the warm northerly influence of the hot inland

Higher latitudes (further from equator) are cooler → southern Australia is much cooler than the north
Temperature decreases approximately 0.65°C for every 100 metres in altitude

Factors influencing
the climate

Australia has mediterranean climate, the cooler areas at found at altitude or close to the coast.

In Australia the biggest problem is Drought.

Weather can also cause vintage variation.

Climate and weather

Climatic and geographical features

Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is one of the most difficult varieties of grape to grow, and is not as heavy as other red wines. Pinot Noir can be meaty and herbaceous.

Grenache was one of the most widely planted grape varieties in Australia before making way for Shiraz. Grenache holds its own very well, and is also a wonderful partner with other varieties.

Red Wine Styles of Australia

Chardonnay is now grown in many of Australia's wine regions, and it can range from citrus and herbaceous notes to a deep tropical bouquet.

The Riesling variety of grape has been grown in Australia since the 1800s. It has been particularly successful in the Barossa region of South Australia, where German settlers first planted it in the 1850s.

Sauvingnon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc is commonly blended with Semillon in Australia, giving it an extra touch of fig.

Darling Scarp range in Western Australia:

This is the edge of the Yilgarn Craton and roses only to 400m.
The best Western Australian regions are on this scarp - from Perth Hills down to Pemberton
