Barossa Valley: A Region Unlike Any Other
When you think of celebrated wine regions it’s only natural for your brain to go to Burgundy or Tuscany or Napa or any of the other regions that get their own sections in wine shops. But on the southern edge of Australia sits a region that is just as good as any of those: the Barossa Valley.
Just north of Adelaide, the foothills of the Barossa Valley provide a tapestry of ancient friable red clay loams combined with a warm and dry climate that creates a unique environment for vines to develop fruit that has a vibrancy and depth of flavor unlike anywhere else on earth. The region is particularly known for its Shiraz and features some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world, dating back to the 1840s.
