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.

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.
Located to the north of the Great Dividing Range in Central Victoria, approximately an hour and a half’s drive from Melbourne, Heathcote is well known for their award winning Shiraz wines, which is characterized in this region by a deep dark ruby colour with a rich silky tannins. The wine region is situated between Bendigo and Goulburn Valley and borders New South Wales to the north. The grapevines of Heathcote are planted along the sides of the hills of Mount Camel. Due to the elevation of the terrain, the cool winds keep the grapes cool and the temperature regulated which aids in a slow and steady process of producing only the finest wines. Another important factor that aids in growing the grapes is the calcium rich Cambrian soil that has good water retention capabilities. Because of this, the wineries of Heathcote rarely need to irrigate their vineyards. Due to these favourable conditions, the wines from Heathcote tend to be extremely rich and flavourful.

About the brand Chalmers
The Chalmers family’s commitment to innovation and excellence has made them a pivotal force in the Australian wine scene for several decades. Through its nursery, vineyards, and wine brands, Chalmers encourages viticultural diversity and smart site-to-variety matching as it works to sustainably grow and authentically craft regional Australian wines. Chalmers wines are the result of years of experimentation and refinement, from the soil to the bottle – Australian wines that pay homage to their continental heritage. Although the Chalmers viticultural story dates back to the late 1970s with grapegrowing and vine propagation, the winery has been producing its own wine only since the early 2000s. Beginning with the Murray Darling Collection in 2003, Chalmers experimented with many French, Spanish, and Italian varieties to find grapes that could produce high-quality fruit in warmer, drier growing conditions. After several vintages, Chalmers sharpened its focus on Italian varieties, of which they had more than 30 in the vineyard, and created Chalmers wines. The Chalmers range focuses on individual varietal wines, each with its own unique personality. The wine company also makes a suite of fun, everyday-drinking wines under its Montevecchio label as well as single-vineyard Heathcote wines Le Sorelle Shiraz and Arturo Malbec.
