Central Victoria's cool, mountainous terrain, ancient granite soils and very old, low-yielding vines yielded an exotic Shiraz, that defines its name with deep colour and a long, unforgettable finish. Only 33 barrels (1,675 six bottle cases) were bottled in November 2003. Count yourself lucky if you are able to grab a few bottles of either the '01 or '02.
Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass
For richer, oaked Sauvignon Blancs such as The Fuder, white Graves or Semillon/Sauvignon blends. For young and non-vintage Champagne we recommend Zalto Universal. However, the Zalto Universal is a very good all-rounder, designed for all types of wines but may not maximize the potential of certain wine as much as the Bordeaux or Burgundy glass.
Despite being the second smallest state in Australia, Victoria is home to over 600 wineries, more than any other wine-producing state. However, Victoria does not produce the most wine, as rather than producing mass quantities of cheaper wine, its wineries tend to be smaller and more boutique in style. The cool climate here produced by the coastal areas means that a wide range of wines can be made, from stunningly complex Chardonnay’s and delicate Pinot Noirs in the Yarra Yarra Valley, to savoury and rich Shiraz from Heathcote and iconic fortified wines from Rutherglen.
Our favourite producers from the Victoria region include By Farr and from the Heathcote area, Wild Duck Creek.
