Hunter Valley, Coonawarra

Internationally, Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s two most well known wine regions, alongside Barossa Valley in South Australia. Located about a two hour drive north of Sydney, the region is very popular for weekend escapes from the city of Sydney.

Hunter Valley’s climate includes regular droughts or floods, seemingly less than desirable conditions to grow grapes, with the hot, humid summers and cool winters. Nevertheless, the region has been under cultivation since the 1800’s and is responsible for putting Australian wine, in particular Sémillon and to a lesser extent Shiraz, on the world wine map. Winemaking pioneers such as Bruce Tyrrell (Tyrrell's Wines) and Len Evans helped the region gain worldwide recognition.

The famous Hunter valley Sémillon was for many years known as ‘Hunter Valley Riesling’ and is never matured in oak. It is however one of the most ageworthy whites in the country with bottles showing an inordinate ability to age gracefully. Bottle-aged Sémillons will often exhibit burnt toast and honey characteristics, slight nutty notes and supremely complex flavours on the palate. This palate complexity is coupled with soft acidity and the finish can be very long indeed.
Located some 380km south of Adelaide, Coonawarra in is in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia and is renowned for producing some of Australia's finest Cabernet Sauvignons on the famed 'Terra Rossa' soils. The region has a long history, with the first vines planted by John Riddoch back in 1890.

The Coonawarra subregion is a slim 2km by 5km strip along the coastline of South Australia, on a shallow limestone ridge over bright red 'terra rossa' soils. Located just 60km from the sea, the region is exposed to a moderate maritime climate, not unlike that of Bordeaux, so it's no surprise that Cabernet thrives.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of the region producing rich full-bodied wines packed full of blackcurrant and plummy fruit and the structure for long-term cellaring. Not to be forgotten, the region has the limestone soils suitable for Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling also.
