Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Western Australia

The wine regions of WA sit at the state’s southwest tip. The famed Margaret River region, with its warm maritime climate, lies roughly 200 kilometres south of Perth. Rainfall is high here compared with other Australian wine regions, but it falls mainly during the winter. Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular planting, and winemakers often blend it with Merlot to create Bordeaux-style wines. Margaret River is also distinguished for its Chardonnays, with their high natural acidity and concentrated stone-fruit aromas. Malolactic fermentation and barrel ageing further lend complexity to these special wines. Sauvignon Blanc is also widely planted here and often goes into blends with Semillon. Wine production also occurs in the Great Southern region, which includes the subregions of Frankland River and Mount Barker. Here, they produce floral Rieslings, peppery and elegant Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Other wine regions in this large state include Blackwood Valley, Geographe, Peel, Pemberton, Manjimup, and Swan District.

About the brand Amherst Winery

Norman and Elizabeth Jones planted the 2-hectare Dunn’s Paddock Shiraz vineyard in 1989, and Amherst Winery was born. They followed this up by planting 1.5 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and half a hectare of Chardonnay in 1998. The winery sits 20 kilometres southeast of Avoca in Western Victoria’s beautiful Pyrenees wine region. Both Norm’s grandparents and his great-grandparents had farmed the land at Amherst, and when Norm got the chance to buy some of it in the 1970s, he seized the opportunity to hold on to a bit of the family heritage. Today, second-generation vigneron Luke Jones owns and operates the business, carrying on the tradition of high-quality, small-batch winemaking. Even as a teenager, Luke was involved in the vineyards, helping to plant them, and has played a part in nearly every vintage since then. Luke spent 15 years in the wine industry in hospitality, retail, and wholesale sales, also earning a diploma in Wine Science. In 2008, he took over winemaking duties at Amherst. Since its first commercial release of Shiraz in 1995, Amherst has gained a reputation for elegant, cool-climate, handcrafted wines that wow both critics and wine lovers, also achieving a five-star winery rating in the Halliday Wine Companion. The winery’s range includes such wines as Dunn's Paddock Shiraz; Chinese Gardens Cabernet Sauvignon; Rachel's Rosé; and Daisy Creek Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Shiraz Cabernet.
