Summary: The Hero of Zero wines are hand-crafted from the best quality fruit sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, including McLaren Vale and the Barossa. With meticulous handling in the vineyard and winery, the pristine fruit will have less exposure to anything harmful that may normally require the addition of preservatives. Our wines are crafted to be brightly coloured, exotically fragrant, full-flavoured and critically, they sing without the addition of preservatives. Perfectly suited to many cuisines, these wines are also crafted to ensure they are suitable for Vegans.
Winemaking: Healthy and problem free Chardonnay is selected in the vineyard and then picked in the cool of the night and then rushed to the nearby winery for a fast and focused vinification. Fermentation is cool in a closed static fermenter before a short maturation on lees and bottling. The resultant wine is then consigned to large steel tanks (charmat method) where the wine undergoes steady carbonation and sealed under cork.

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.

New South Wales
Home to 14 official wine regions, New South Wales offers a diverse and wide-ranging expanse to produce wines that appeal to every palate.
From Australia’s oldest continuous wine region – the famous Hunter Valley – to exciting new cool climate regions such as Orange, the Southern Highlands and Tumbarumba, these regions can be found to produce some of the best Australian Wine around. Recognised as the second-largest wine-producing state in Australia, New South Wales is also the most populous state with its wine consumption far outpacing the region's wine production. Although the Hunter Valley region is well known, the majority of wineries are located along the Murray and Darling Rivers (in the south-east of the state) which supplies water for many of the region's wineries.
Other regions within New South Wales include the Canberra District, Cowra, Gundagai, Hastings River, Hilltops, Mudgee, New England, Perricoota, Riverina and the Shoalhaven Coast.
Situated on the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, surrounding the town of Tumbarumba, this wine region ranges from 300-800 meters in altitude. With the first vineyards planted in 1982 this appellation is more-or-less evenly split between red and white varietals. Tumbarumba's signature wines are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for sparkling and table wines. In recent years, the newer plantings include Merlot, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Shiraz and Viognier. The latter varieties helped by the warm dry seasons experienced in the region. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir make up around 80% of the total plantings. The region is reputed as New South Wales’ coolest climate grape-growing appellation with the majority of grapes produced in the region sold onto the major wine companies. Small parcels of fruit do stay in the area with a select number of growers producing under their own labels.
