Regions explained The Barossa

The Barossa

The Barossa is undoubtedly Australia’s best-known wine region, encapsulating the sub-regions of the sun-kissed Barossa Valley and the cool climate Eden Valley. Famed for its old vines and bold reds; and from Eden Valley some of Australia’s (and indeed the New World’s) greatest Riesling. Shiraz is the red variety synonymous with Barossa, with producers such as Henschke, Penfolds and St Hallet setting the standard for this varietal in Australia. With a strong European history, Barossa offers wines of concentration, affordability and varietal variation. With a move towards understanding the region’s distinct terroir, the Barossa Grounds project is an ongoing journey to investigate and articulate the diverse characteristics of the sub-regions or ‘parishes’ of the Barossa Valley and their influence on wine style, particularly Barossa Shiraz.
