Old vines and classic wines
If you could only choose Australian wine region to truly showcase the history, evolution and revolution of Australian wine then you could do a lot worse than pick the Barossa Valley. There are sixth generation grape growing families in the region, custodians to Australia’s largest collection of old vines with blocks dating back to the 1840’s.
In recent years, traditional Barossa varieties like Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro have been
joined by a new wave of Mediterranean varieties, suited to the region’s soils and climate. The region has also been invigorated by a new breed of winemakers who have challenged the status quo while still maintaining an inherent love and respect for the Barossa traditions and culture.
