Editors notes

Handpicked make a positive change wherever possible to produce the best sustainable wine.

Light, rather washed-out ruby to orange colour, and a shy, elusive aroma of vague 'forest floor', compost and vegetal aromas. Dried flowers, too, rose petals and spices.

The palate is likewise light in weight but intensely-flavoured, the tannins soft and gentle but plentiful. A complex and quite delicious nebbiolo. A really gorgeous wine that really grows on you.

Locations

Australia

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.

Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.

Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.

With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.

Victoria

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Pyrenees

Just two hours outside of Melbourne, the Pyrenees wine region is spectacular piece of countryside. The rugged foothills and untamed ranges at the southern end of the Great Dividing Range offer top-notch winemaking conditions, as well as some incredible scenery.

A total of 44 vineyards are tucked into the Pyrenees, taking advantage of the range of microclimates among the hills. Although it's primarily known for its spicy reds, the region also produces world-class chardonnays and sauvignon blancs.

About the brand Handpicked Wines

Handpicked makes regionally expressive and site-specific wines in a growing list of the world’s great wine regions.

Handpicked Wines founder and managing director William Dong admits that he came into the wine industry knowing little about the challenges ahead; he just loved wine and wanted to make wines that people would want to share together. It didn’t take long to realise that to make truly great wines that express the best of their region he would need to invest in special vineyards and passionate people.

Capella Vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula was the first vineyard purchased, in 2013. It remains Handpicked’s spiritual home and where our winemakers are based. They now own six vineyards in Mornington, Yarra Valley, Tasmania and Barossa Valley. In other regions in Australia and around the world they work with exceptional growers who have become part of the Handpicked family over many years.
