South Australia Wine

South Australia is the strong arm of the Australia wine industry, where the majority of the country’s wines are produced. Some of the biggest labels originate from this state, from the mass-produced tables wines to rare, highly prized cult bottlings such as Penfolds, Grant Burge and Henschke Hill of Grace. And in a vast range of styles from sparkling to sweet. Due to a successful quarantine against Phylloxera, which hit the east of the country and otherwise devastated Europe, South Australia can boast some of the oldest original vines in the world.

The pride of the region is Shiraz, the signature grape brought over from the Rhone that thrives in many of the area’s microclimates. But each region has its own variation in terroir and weather system, lending to diverse styles and grape-growing trends from the warm, bold, red-driven Barossa and Coonawarra regions to cooler climate, white-producing Clare and Eden valleys.

  • Mcguigan the Heist Shiraz 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Relatively light in clarity, showing light rusty red tones as far as color goes.....legs are minimal but rather an oily film around the inside of the wine glass. Aromas of plum, vanilla, slight dark berries and boysenberry/strawberry.....perhaps some muted peppery spice too. Flavors of muted baking and peppery spice, tart raspberry, currant an... Read More

  • The Magic Box Amazing Cabernet 2018

    Snoothrank:

    The coloration is quite purple-ish, with black cherry hues around the rim and with decent clarity. The aromas give off hints of vanilla oak, subtle spice, plum like fruits and perhaps a wee bit of smoky leather. Flavors are of ripe fruits and berries, such as plum, cherry, currant and even some mocha/milky chocolate. The mouthfeel is slightly... Read More

  • Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon Lost Block 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Pours cranberry juice colors with tawny tinges around the edging and shows some murky suspension.....definitely a few years young. Aromas of fruity ripe berry, such as strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry/cranberry. Cinnamon spice is noticed in the background and oak laden alcohol is detected as well on the nostrils. Flavors follow suit, wit... Read More

  • Yalumba the Y Series Viognier 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Admittedly, this South Australia Viognier has with lots of almond, lychee nut and pear on the nose - though perhaps a bit overly intrusive; entry is spicy with some acidity and almond-like bitterness. Clean, and excellent with Chinese fare. Also good value. 86. Read More

  • The Black Chook Shiraz-Viognier 2016

    Snoothrank:

    This modestly priced Shiraz (4% Viognier, negligible) has a nose of menthol, cooked black fruit and plums. Powerful on entry with more menthol lozenge, almond and blackberry concentrate. Very McLaren Valley; very Oz. Could age a couple more years, but perfect for the BBQ now. Excellent quality - especially considering the price point. 88. Read More

  • I am a South Aussie and Adelaide is a great wine destination, Barossa Valley is 1 hour drive, Clare Valley is a 1.5 hr drive, McLaren Vale is 45 minute Drive, Coonawarra is 4 hour drive and Adelaide Hills is literally a suburb.
