Region South Australia

South Australia is the driest state on the world’s driest continent. Covering almost 1 million (984 377km) square kilomteres, it represents 12.8% of the Australian land mass. Sweeping plains are intersected by a spine of relatively low lying ranges, the Mount Lofty/Flinders Ranges which extend through the heart of the State. Over 50% of the state is elevated at under 150 metres. The Great Artesian basin covers almost one-third of the State. The major river is the River Murray which lethargically makes its way into the Southern Ocean. This water mass has a moderating effect on climate, particularly in the southern regions of South Australia where most vines are planted. Summers are generally hot and dry with relatively mild nights. Winters are cool. Rainfall occurs mostly during late autumn/winter (May, June, July, August). Drought and salinity are major concerns. The principle wine regions in South Australia are; the Adelaide Hills, Barossa (comprising the Barossa and Eden Valleys),

The principle wine regions in South Australia are; the Adelaide Hills, Barossa (comprising the Barossa and Eden Valleys), Clare Valley, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Coonawarra and the Riverland. Vineyard expansion has also extended to Wrattonbully, Mount Benson, Bordertown, Robe, Southern Fleurieu and the Flinders Ranges.

It is a tradition for many wine companies to make multi-district blends from South Australian fruit – the idea of house style taking precedence over regional definition. Penfolds pioneered this concept. The vagaries of vintage variation can be evened out by fruit selection, ensuring quality at a high level. However there is debate that this concept comes at the expense of the ‘soul’ of the wine. Penfolds Grange is probably the most famous multi-district blend and is an excellent counter-argument.

If anything all of those great old names – Steingarten, St Hugo and Lawson’s – have not really benefited from this repositioning on the secondary wine market. St Hugo has always been one of Coonawarra's leading Cabernets with an enviable track record of quality. The wine is a made from select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, mostly older plantings, all grown on the iron rich terra rossa soils over limestone. However it is no longer regarded as a member of the forward pack of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignons. However St Hugo does represent terrific value. The wines are consistently good showing refined varietal intensity and flavours, fine tannin structure and good flavour length. Lawson’s Shiraz, named after Robert Lawson, one of the early pioneers of the cool climate Padthaway region, is also a well regarded wine with a similar cachet. It can still claim regional definition, consistency of quality and value, but it rarely achieves the top note of Australian Shiraz. The Padthaway fruit is drawn from a single vineyard planted in 1968 on deep sandy soils on gentle eastern slopes surrounded by eucalypt trees. These are rich, flavoursome wines with plenty of rich Shiraz fruit definition, a touch of menthol and ripe mouth-filling tannin structure. Centenary Hills Barossa Shiraz is also a good value wine showing good regional characters and volume of fruit. Steingarten, once regarded as one of Australia’s great Rieslings, has become something of an enigma. The wine still shows up on the market sometimes defying expectations. Jacaranda Ridge – which was much vaunted at release in 1982 – seems to have disappeared off the radar screen. This is a wine that has had a troubled evolution. Conflicting wine making philosophies and technical problems have slowed progress. A 2003 vintage was released in 2007. Generally the Orlando Jacob’s Creek Saints range represents excellent value.
