South Australia

South Australia (SA) is Australia’s wine heartland, producing most of the country's wine and boasting some of its oldest vines. The dry, hot climate ripens grapes fully, making bold, dense and concentrated wines.

The Barossa Valley has a rich viticultural history with patches of bush-trained vines, many more than 100 years old. It is first and foremost a red wine region. Shiraz is king but cabernet sauvignon, grenache and mourvèdre play an important part, too.

Close to the Barossa is the Eden Valley, a windswept series of elevated hills producing exceptional shiraz and floral riesling. Just north of the Barossa is the Clare Valley, which represents Australia's pinnacle for riesling, where elevated vineyards temper the intense heat, producing dry whites of immense class and purity. The region’s powerful and muscular reds can be outstanding too.

On the coast south of Adelaide is McLaren Vale, which vies with Barossa to be SA's best red-wine region. The climate is warm enough to...

On the coast south of Adelaide is McLaren Vale, which vies with Barossa to be SA's best red-wine region. The climate is warm enough to guarantee lush, chocolatey reds from shiraz, grenache and cabernet, while its strong maritime influence invests elegance in chardonnay, viognier and marsanne. Nearby Langhorne is cooled by the lake and nearby sea, and grows grapes of very good quality at a low cost. These excellent-value wines are marked by a softness and fullness of flavour. The Adelaide Hills area east of the city are cool and provide the perfect ingredients for lemony sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. Coonawarra, further south-east behind the Limestone Coast, is South Australia's leading cabernet region, the unique terra rossa soil and maritime influence producing grapes with intense flavours and fabulous structure.

Peter Lehmann

Peter Lehmann Wines is located in Australia’s Barossa Valley, to the north of Adelaide. The company was started in 1979 by winemaker Peter Lehmann at a time of serious overproduction in the Barossa, where independent local growers with unsold grapes were facing the real possibility of financial ruin. Lehmann’s consortium of investment partners was set up with the aim of coming to their rescue, and resisting an Australian government proposal to grub up precious Barossa vines, something he considered unthinkable. An undeniably risky business venture back then, the company became a quality-conscious producer, saving Barossa from the brink of failure and also making the Peter Lehmann name world-famous for reliability and value for money in the glass.

Under the ownership of the Swiss-based Hess Group which took over in 2003, the company has continued to flourish, making wines from all the major grape varieties. Andrew Wigan is the current winemaker and one of Australia’s very best. He oversees a huge portfolio which is absolutely consistent, from entry-level bottles such as Weighbridge and 88 Growers Semillon, a Society exclusive, to fine wines. The company’s commitment to the Barossa and local growers has been rewarded with access to over 900 vineyards - unparalleled in the region. Today, Lehmann wines are well-respected examples of their type with many of them ranking among our members’ favourites for everyday drinking. The iconic Stonewell Shiraz is a blend of top Barossa...

Australia Vintage 2019

It’s hard to give a blanket picture of how Australia has done in any particular vintage as, frankly, it’s huge! Regional variation notwithstanding, 2019 generally looks good in most regions after an excellent 2018. Drought, though, continued to be a problem, and rising temperatures in places such as McLaren Vale mean that alcohol levels are only going in one direction.

However, I would urge members not to base their view of the entirety of Australia on what is going on in Barossa or McLaren Vale. 2019 in Margaret River produced some excellent wines and this continues to be a world-class region for elegant, silky and delicious cabernet-based wines. Tasmania, Yarra and Mornington Peninsula have also shone in the 2019 vintage and demonstrate how fantastic Australia is for cooler-climate winemaking. Thanks to Margaret River and Mornington Peninsula’s sea influence (therefore keeping temperatures cooler) and the microclimates of Yarra Valley and Tasmania, these regions are set to...
