Australia

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.

South Australia

If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.

Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!

Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.

Langhorne Creek

Less than an hour drive south east of Adelaide, you'll find the country town of Langhorne Creek. It's full of family wine growers some who've been making wine in the area for up to six generations. It's most well known for producing red wines of high quality, in particular Cabernet and Shiraz.

Langhorne Creek experiences ocean breezes which moderate the otherwise warm climate. The town is on the banks of the north to south flowing Bremer River which flows on to Lake Alexandrina. The river frequently floods across the vineyards (particularly in winter) bringing up silts which contribute to the regions terroir.

Whilst it may still not be the most well known of South Australia's many wine regions, plenty of outstanding wine comes from there.

About the brand Commissioners Block

Eager to expand his flourishing business E.J. Roberts sought to purchase a block of scrub land which lay adjacent to the railway line connecting Merbein with the main Mildura to Melbourne line. The block earned its name when, in 1913, it was purchased from the state rail authorities with the help the Railway Chairman of Commissioners. The old Roberts Estate wine cellar at Merbein is built on the Commissioners Block.
