Learn Aussie Wines

Learn Aussie Wines

Learn about Aussie Wine Regions – All Aussie Wines are on Sale this Month at Taylor’s! Australian Wine Regions As the map above shows, the bulk of Australia’s wine production is in south eastern Australia, chiefly in the regions of South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.  Western Australia’s Margaret River has been producing some of Australia’s best Cabernet and Chardonnay for years and is finally starting to gain the recognition it deserves among wine lovers around the world.   Queensland has a number of great wineries but is a small player and the cool climate Tasmania has begun to impress many with it’s Pinot Noirs in recent years. Australia’s wine growing area are categorized by the GI (Geographical Indication) system, similar to our AVA system which was established in 1994.  The largest or most generic GI is the state (i.e. South Australia) followed by zone (Barossa), region (Barossa Valley, Eden Valley) and sub-region (High Eden).  South Australia’s Barossa Valley is Australia’s most widely recognized region and his home to some of the oldest vines and vineyards.  South Australia is also home to the notable regions of Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Riverland.  Victoria’s most recognizable region is the Yarra Valley and New South Wales boasts the Hunter Valley and Riverina regions.  Margaret River is Western Australia’s most famous GI, but Great Southern and Perth Hills are two up and coming regions to keep an eye out for.
