Australian wine has always been thought of as rich, ripe and fruit-forward, which is no bad thing, but look beyond the surface and you will find all kinds of incredible wine! With some of the world's most fertile valleys and varied landscapes, Australian wine is not to be missed.
In the South of Australia is the Barossa Valley, home of stalwarts Penfolds, easily one of the biggest names in Australian wine (if not the biggest!). Best known for their first wine, Grange, they have since grown into titans of the Australian wine industry.
Other Australian wine superstars who we are delighted to work with include trailblazers Henschke, who for over 150 years have been producing sustainable wines from their families’ vineyards all across Barossa & Eden Valley. They too are widely celebrated for their Shiraz, though don’t miss out on Henschke’s fragrant Julius Riesling and creamy Eden Valley Semillon! The Henschke range is the perfect showcase of Australian wine and its many triumphs.
The Barossa Valley is full of extraordinary producers, and we’re also amazed by the wines of Torbreck Vintners. With nods to Scotland’s rugged highland, these Australian wines, with names like Woodcutter and Runrig, never fail to surprise.
Beyond the Barossa & Eden Valley both Timo Mayer and Jane Eyre are making stunning Australian wine in the Yarra Valley. We’re also big champions of family vineyard Ochota Barrels, whose rock’n’roll wines capture the spirit of punk with their diverse range of blends. You really do feel like you are drinking “Texture like Sun”!
Meanwhile in New Zealand you'll discover a symphony of cool-climate elegance.
