New England

The wine region of New England is located in the north of New South Wales. The mid-sized wine region makes up about one half of the Northern Slopes zone and borders Queensland and the northern regions of the Hunter Valley.

The temperatures between night and day vary greatly which is what makes it different to the neighboring regions. The vineyards of this wine region are located between 400-1000m above sea level which protects the vines from excessive heat. Grapes were planted since the 1880s by the colonial settlers making New England not only the highest but also the oldest vineyards in the state. The New England wine region is known mostly for their refined and elegant cool climate Shiraz and Chardonnay wines, although exciting new producers are venturing in to aromatic whites and other blends too.
