Countries

Australia

Australia – A rapid rise to the international elite.

Australia, separated from the other continents by oceans for roughly 50 million years, has almost two hundred years of viticulture history. For a long time, Australians pressed their wines for their own use, with simple, undemanding vines. But later the country began to specialize in classic, European varieties. And with great success –Australian wines today enjoy great prestige and are consumed worldwide..

South Australia

South Australia: Shiraz as a driving force

South Australia, with the Barossa Valley as the most well-known cultivation area and the city of Adelaide as a wine metropolis, is without a doubt the centre of the Australian wine economy. The wines produced here have brought the Shiraz from “down under” worldwide recognition. They are fully concentrated wines with dark-berried cassis fruit and masterfully supportive oak wood spices. But Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Riesling play more than just a supporting role.

McLaren Vale

McLaren Vale: Fruit abundance, paired with elegance

Just 35 kilometres south of Adelaide city centre, a seemingly Mediterranean wine and culinary scene has established itself. In addition to wine, olive oil, cheese and other gourmet products are produced in McLaren Vale. In a Mediterranean climate, full-fruited Shiraz vines are grown in sparse soils. But Chardonnay and many specialties also succeed exquisitely. Viticulture here is steeped in history more than anywhere else in South Australia. The first vines were already planted here by 1838.

Grape varieties

Shiraz

A hint of pepper

The legend stubbornly persists that the Syrah variety came from the Persian city of Shiraz. Yet, researchers have shown that it is a natural crossing of two old French varieties: the red Dureza from the Rhône Valley and the white Mondeuse blanche from Savoy. Wines from Syrah are gentle and concentrated. They smell of dark berries, violets and liquorice, and amaze with a piquant touch of white pepper. As varietal wines, they are found on the northern Rhone, as in the Hermitage or Côte Rôtie appellations, as well as in Swiss Valais. In the southern Rhône Valley, Syrah is often wedded with Grenache and Mourvèdre. In 1832, a Frenchman brought the variety to Australia, where it became the emblem of the national wine industry. There, the weightiest versions develop with typical notes of tar and chocolate.
