Australia is blessed having ample sunshine of which allows our grapes to reach maturity to perfection. No matter what the vagaries of a certain red grape variety, there definitely will end up being a part of Australia which can provide it all it would need. Even toughies including traditional Malbec or even black-as-pitch Petit Verdot turn out a treat.

In general, the drier the particular wine district, the more often than not it is going to generate rich, full flavoured styles which numerous people come to affiliate with Australian red wine. Nonetheless, Australia also has cool climatic conditions perfectly suited to red styles that produce lighter and more sophisticated red wine styles.

The world's classic high grade red grape varieties are all located in great quantity in Australia.

Cabernet Sauvignon has got several organic "homes" throughout Australia's wine districts. The well-known Coonawarra terra rossa soils have generated exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon for more than a millennium, whilst few locations can come close to matching Western Australia's Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon for absolute stylishness.

In much cooler districts the troublesome grape Pinot Noir matches well, while the versatile Shiraz, expresses itself incredibly effectively in just about all except the coolest locations. Several of the milder local climate regions tend to be also home to that eccentric and splendid Australian speciality wine beverage, sparkling red Shiraz.

Hardly any other grape has such a exclusively Australian character as Shiraz. Attempt to clone they might but the bulk of the world's wine makers won't ever capture that mulberry, spicy, kind of ‘wild' taste of which can only be Australia's very own.

Shiraz (the same grape as Syrah throughout France's Rhone Valley) most likely was one of the earliest grape vine types to appear in Australia in 1832. So comfortable was it on its completely new turf that plantings prospered and it wasn't very long before the nation wide populace began to take it for granted. Nevertheless, from the eighties folks had started to understand precisely how adaptable it could end up being, its characteristics varied dependent upon the actual area in which it ended up being produced.

Every type surfaced from elegant, peppery cool climate types (Heathcote in Victoria) to far more strongly flavoured spicy styles of Coonawarra and Margaret River to strong and minty (Clare Valley), fairly sweet and chocolaty (McLaren Vale), muscular, and ripe-fruited (Barossa), plus leather and rich (Hunter Valley).

Shiraz, with which has ordinarily been combined both in cool and warm parts of the country with Cabernet Sauvignon can also be combined with Grenache and Mourvedre in warm environments.

Recently, with the quantity associated with higher plantings of Viognier in Australia, wine-makers have considerably more often blended Shiraz Viognier permutations. Typically, Shiraz Viognier blends possess a perfumed nose and much softer tannins which make these wine beverages suitable to have while quite at an early age.
