Red Wines – Aussie reds

Aussie reds! Who could imagine a world without them? Our reds can be big, bold, and full-flavoured or lighter more delicate cool climate wines. Unlike white wine, red wine is made by fermenting the juice, skins and seeds together, then pressing the wine.

Most red wines undergo malo-lactic fermentation, a process that converts harsh malic acid into softer tasting lactic acid to create a more supple wine. Maturation is an essential step in producing full-bodied red wines, while lighter reds are bottled earlier to capture freshness.

The most popular of our reds include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Of course, we can't forget that uniquely Australian red: Sparkling Shiraz. Reds are a great for BBQs or hearty winter feasts and go well with beef, lamb and other red meets. They can also be enjoyed with pork, salmon, duck, and turkey.

Wines from Tasmania

Tasmania is an outstanding tourist destination, rich in history and with ever-changing natural beauty, all seemingly within a short drive of wherever you may be…when wine tourism is added, the mix is an intoxicating one.”
James Halliday
For a long time, Tasmania was considered too cold to grow grapes. Experts recommended apples, cherries and apricots as a suitable crop, and grape growing was actively discouraged. Fortunately, a few European contingents recognized that the climatic conditions were very similar to their wine-growing homelands, and went ahead and planted grapes anyway.
As it turns out, the cool climate is perfect for grape growing - and the conditions are almost identical to those of Burgundy, the spiritual home of Pinot Noir. If you’re a lover of fine Pinots, you’ve probably already discovered the sublime versions that Tasmania offers. Incredibly silky in texture and elegant in structure, the wines have a quiet power, with complex dark berry and cherry fruit flavours highlighted by truffle, mushroom, game and spice. Food match? Pinot and duck are a match made in heaven.
