Ask an international winelover to name Australia’s most famous wine region and they’re likely to say the Barossa. With its big, bold Shiraz, some made from the world’s oldest Shiraz vineyards, and names such as Penfolds, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek choosing the Barossa as home, it’s no wonder it’s held in such high esteem. However, there’s much more to South Australia than the Barossa; take for instance the Limestone Coast, which encompasses the regions of Coonawarra, Mount Benson, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, and Robe. With its unique strip of terra rossa soil, this zone is responsible for reds, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon, that can take on some of the world’s finest. For a concentrated cluster of wineries where eco-responsibility is the norm, McLaren Vale is number one or it’s a hop, skip and a jump onto the ferry over to the pristine wilderness of Kangaroos Island for wild animals, breath-taking views and out-of-this-world wine!
