Australian wine terroir: how does the soil affect the wine you drink?

September 3, 2017

Australian wine would not be what it is without the varying terroir, which allows for vineyards to grow so many different grape varieties. From the rich, terra rossa soil of the Coonawarra to the Mediterranean temperatures in McLaren Vale and the cooler climatic wines of Tasmania – we have a world of wine at our feet.

Australia’s wine industry has grown from a few plantings 200 years ago to a now world-renowned wine producer for quality, varietals and innovation. Australia produces nearly every major wine varietal; our ability to grow them lies in the soils and climates of more than 60 wine regions across the country. Join us as we explore the terroir of 14 of them.
