Region Coonawarra

Coonawarra

The first vines were planted in Coonawarra by John Riddoch in 1890, however it was not until the renewed interest in table wine production in the 1950's that Coonawarra was brought into the limelight. Located almost 380 km southeast of Adelaide, Coonawarra is today one of the most famous red wine regions in Australia. Its weathered limestone terra rossa soils, avaibility of water and relatively cool maritime climate make it a unique viticultural region. Extremely flat and unprotected, Coonawarra is exposed both to the swinging influences of the cool Great Southern Ocean and hot, dry northerly winds. Spring frosts also pose a major threat with the potential to wipe out entire crops. Mechanical harvesting is widely employed in the region although smaller producers prefer to tend their vines by hand. Coonawarra is best known for classically-styled Cabernet Sauvignon, although in good years, Shiraz from the region is also very compelling.

Winery PEPPER TREE WINES

Pepper Tree was established in 1991 in the Hunter Valley. The estate produces fruit from its own extensive vineyard holdings in the Hunter, Orange, Coonawarra and Wrattonbully regions. Amongst its offerings, Peppertree produces a number of single vineyard wines. Their Hunter Valley vineyard, planted primarily to Chardonnay is located in the Mount View area of the Lower Hunter Valley in the sheltered foothills of the Brokenback Range. Peppertree’s vineyards in Orange are anchored mid-slope on Mt Canobolas and are also planted primarily to Chardonnay. The estate sources its Cabernet Sauvignon from their Coonawarra and Wrattonbully vineyards. Each wine in the Pepper Tree Single Vineyard range is made to express the best of the variety and the region.
