Pemberton, Eden Valley, Mornington Peninsula

Over 50 local vineyards have set up shop around Pemberton, a small tourist town hidden among the spectacular karri forests of southwestern WA. The town's high altitude and southern latitude combine to create a relatively cool, almost Mediterranean climate. This means a longer ripening period for the grapes and a well-balanced final product.

The region's superb soil is another contributing factor to its popularity. From fertile karri loam to gravelly soil on higher slopes, the region offers winemakers a variety of landscapes with which to work. Famous for its Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz, the Pemberton area has well and truly made its mark on Australian wine culture.
Eden Valley is a cool climate wine region between 400 and 600m up the Barossa range, to the east of the warmer Barossa Valley. It is of a similar size to the Barossa Valley, but given the altitude and cooler climate, Eden Valley is renowned for producing high-quality Riesling and Shiraz. Due to its cool climate, small portions of cooler Eden Valley fruit are often blended with 'sister' wines from the Barossa Valley.

The cooler climate provides optimum conditions for the long, slow ripening of the grapes, which generally retain acidity and developing complex flavours on the vine. The townships sub-regions include Keyneton in the east, Truro in the north and Mt Pleasant in the south and High Eden, located even higher up the Barossa Ranges, with even cooler temperatures.

The soils of the region is generally nutrient-poor yellow podzolic/sandy & pink quartz soils over decomposed (gneiss) granite. With its rocky outcrop, which extends to the soild, most irrigation is provided by dams, and most vineyards plant their vines close together. When compared to Clare Valley, Eden Valley is slightly higher in altitude and a little cooler, though has similar sunshine hours, but lower levels of continentality.
