Light, refined and delicate

Light, refined and delicate

It’s true that these two words are not often associated with Australian wine but this is simply down to the age old stereotype. The further exploration of Australia’s coolest regions and research into the various sub-regions and micro-climates has been driven by the trend for lighter, easier going styles of wine and has resulted in numerous easy drinking style reds being produced across the country with the finest, premium examples being found in Australia’s coolest climates.

If you are living on the lighter side of life and looking for wines to suit, Pinot Noir is leading the way for Australia’s lightest wines but even within one grape variety, a range of style and weights can be produced from the country’s diverse climates. The coolest climates produce the lightest styles, Tasmania being responsible for the most elegant style. Tasmania is not only the county’s most southern region, but being a small island surrounded by coastline, it is considerably affected by the cool winds that blow in from the surrounding ocean. The Glaetzer-Dixon Pinot Noirs are the lightest and most elegant in style with refined cherry fruit. Dr-Edge also produces terroir driven Pinot that has a slightly more earthy quality than the Glaetzer-Dixon wines.

Inland Australia is also capable producing a light style of wine. Pinot Noir thrives in cool climate Yarra Valley due to elevation altitudes. Notable examples can be found from Hoddles Creek or Mayer.
