AUSTRALIAN WINES ONLINE
Such is the size of Australia and the size of its wine industry, it can quite easily viewed as an amalgamation of all the different grape varieties and styles of wine of Europe. After all the original vineyards of Australia were in the main set up by experienced wine growers who emigrated to Australia from the different wine growing countries within Europe. Wine is produced in every Australian State and throughout this large continent there are more than fifty designated wine regions, all contributing to the fact that Australia is the World's fourth largest exporter of wine and fortified wine combined.
Adam and Eve forgot Australia since it has no natural grapes of its own and todays most popular grape varieties (which the majority of originated from Europe in the late 18th and early 19th centuries) are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Riesling. Pinot Noir is trying its best to establish a presence, but competing with the high quality Pinot Noir wines from the perfect soil and climate conditions of New Zealand's South Island is proving very difficult.
Australian wines, especially the reds have made enormous strides forward on the quality front over the last thirty years or so. The richness, depth of flavour, complexity with the capability of long cellaring have all contributed to Australia's ability to command similar high prices to the top growths of France Italy and Spain. A good example being "Penfold's Grange." The white wines of Australia seem to be dominated by the chardonnay grape. The conditions in many parts of Australia for producing this wine are ideal and is reflected in the very large volumes of easy drinking produced, as well as top of the range chardonnay wines for special occasions.
The following are the most important and well known wine regions of Australia and Alexander Hadleigh wine Merchants, Southampton, Hampshire, UK maintain a very large selection of wines from each region for sale online or at our Southampton shop: Barossa Valley wines, Clare Valley Wines, Hunter Valley Wines, South and South Eastern Australia Wines, McLaren Vale Wines, Rutherglen Wines, Victoria Wines, Yarra Valley Wines, Coonawarra Wines, Western Australia and Margaret River Wines and Tasmania Wines.

Jeffrey Grosset established his winery in 1981 in the historic township of Auburn, Clare Valley, 100 kilometres north of Adelaide. The winery is stylish and functional and reflects the attention to detail that extends to the Grosset estate-owned vineyards and winemaking. Jeff is best known for his iconic Rieslings, and he has almost single-handedly been responsible for the renaissance of Clare Valley Riesling. By combining a disciplined approach and decades of experience, Grosset consistently achieves the purest expression of variety and place.

Dandelion vineyards is the venture of Zar Brooks, his wife Elena and growers Carl Lindner and Brad Rey, with wines made from the Barossa and Eden Valleys, Fleurieu and McLaren Vale. Nick Stock, one of Australia\'s leading journalists, has described Dandelion as follows: \'Brooks has teamed up with his winemaking wife Elena, a woman whose talents are outweighed only by her tolerance, in an exciting new venture called Dandelion Vineyards. . The approach is remarkably simple and sees Elena making wine from a suite of beautiful old vineyards identified by Carl Lindner and Brad Rey across that blessed curve that runs from the Barossa, up through the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills and down into McLaren Vale.\'

This winery changed hands in 2016 with one family company, Brown Brothers taking it off the hands of another, its founder, Phil Sexton. So associated is Innocent Bystander with the Yarra Valley that the new owners made the intelligent decision to build a new winery in Healesville, just across the parking lot from Giant Steps. They quickly signed contracts with all the grape growers that Phil used for Innocent Bystander, so that the style of the wines remains unchanged. This regional and varietal style, reflecting the soil, climate and topography of the cool climate in the Yarra Valley is the base upon which the reputation of Innocent Bystander has been built.
This deep coloured 16 Stops Shiraz is youthful and vibrant, with a lovely dark fruit and spiced plum character on the nose.
