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.
Compared with other Australian states, Queensland produces a relatively small amount of wine. However, it does comprise a number of wine-producing regions, including the Granite Belt, the Scenic Rim/Gold Coast Hinterland, Wide Bay–Burnett, South Burnett, Darling Downs, and Brisbane/Greater Brisbane/The Sunshine Coast. Here, vineyards often are at higher altitudes to counteract the state’s hot climate. The Granite Belt, on the Queensland/New South Wales border, features 250-million-year-old granitic soils and some of the highest vineyards in Australia (at more than 1,000 metres above sea level). The region produces more than 60% of the state’s wine. The Scenic Rim/Gold Coast Hinterland produces both a number of emerging varietals, such as Verdelho, Chambourcin, and Viognier, and classic varietals, including Chardonnay, Shiraz, and Merlot. Queensland’s largest wine region, South Burnett, boasts warm summer days and crisp, cool nights; terra rossa soils; and such varietals as Semillon, Chardonnay, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
