New South Wales is the birthplace of Australian wine, with the Hunter Valley home to Australia’s first commercial vineyards. Today there are 14 dynamic wine regions in New South Wales. In each one, you’ll find unique wines and tourism experiences – from sunny beaches and misty mountains, to friendly country towns and delicious local produce. 

MOST POPULAR WINE REGIONS OF NEW SOUTH WALES 

HUNTER VALLEY

On a tour of New South Wales wine, the historic Hunter Valley wine region is a must-visit. It was established in the 1860s and today it’s one of Australia’s best-known and most-visited wine regions, thanks to its easy two-hour drive from Sydney, award-winning cellar doors, top restaurants and stunning scenery. The Hunter Valley is famous for its unique Semillon wines, alongside ChardonnayShiraz and a growing list of alternative varieties suited to the warm climate. 

SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS

On Sydney’s doorstep, the Southern Highlands is a popular destination for its wine tastings in boutique cellar doors, regional produce and top restaurants in historical towns. Expect sophisticated country charm – this is where national parks and forests meet formal gardens, celebrity-owned estates and boutique shopping. The climate is quite cool, thanks to the higher altitude, and there’s a small but growing community of independent producers crafting elegant wines, including Chardonnay, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. 

CANBERRA DISTRICT

Surrounding the city of Canberra, the lush and hilly Canberra District wine region produces premium cool-climate wines. It’s home to around 140 vineyards that span New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. Discover elegant Shiraz and fresh Riesling, plus a range of other red and white wines. There’s also contemporary cellar doors to visit, a fast-growing food scene and all the attractions of Canberra a short drive away. 

ORANGE

About three-and-a-half hours west of Sydney, Orange is one of the highest vineyard areas in Australia. The weather is relatively cool and the landscape is dominated by the now extinct Mount Canobolas volcano. This young but fast-growing region has become a serious dining destination thanks to its brilliant wines, restaurants and local produce. There are more than 60 wineries and top-quality examples of Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, plus elegant sparkling wines

MUDGEE

The Mudgee wine region is a popular weekend getaway thanks to its flourishing food and wine scene, arts community and boutique shopping, set within a historic, down-to-earth region about three-and-a-half hours from Sydney. Its wine community is known for innovation and sustainability, so expect architectural cellar doors, creative winemakers, and vibrant red and white wines grown in sustainable vineyards.

The 46 hectares that make up Trentham Estate’s vineyards sit on a winding riverbank at Trentham Cliffs. The ideal terroir of red loam over limestone soils combined with nurturing water from the Murray River allows the vines to flourish.

Meticulously managed by viticulturist Patrick Murphy, the vineyard today comprises over twenty different grape varieties. The oldest vines were planted over half a century ago.
Harvest typically begins at Trentham in mid to late January – slightly earlier than most wine regions of Australia due to the warmer climate of the Murray Darling. Grapes are picked and crushed at optimum ripeness to produce the perfect flavour.

Trentham’ s winery has been operating since 1988, where it has grown from the initial 30 tonne crush to a minimal but state-of-the-art facility handling up to 5,000 tonnes of premium fruit each vintage. It allows the flexibility to perform different winemaking styles, resulting in the diverse and always consistent Trentham Estate wines.

Trentham Estate Shiraz

Trentham Estate Shiraz

THE GRAPES Shiraz, also known as Syrah, is thought to originate from the Rhone Valley in France and it continues to be the most predominant variety in this region. In 1831 James Busby collected cuttings from France and brought them to Australia. By the 1860’s Shiraz was established as one of the most important grape varieties in Australia and has developed an excellent reputation and is sought after worldwide.

THE VINTAGE ‘Late but great’ sums up the 2017 vintage. Good rain in spring, followed by mild weather and only short heat waves resulted in grapes ripening slowly on the vine. It was certainly an unusually late harvest but the wines are something to be proud of – well balanced fruit, plenty of flavour and distinct varietal aromas.

THE WINEMAKING Once harvested, the grapes were de-stemmed and pumped into the fermentation vessel. The fruit was fermented on skins for 7 days before pressing. After pressing, the wine was matured in a combination of new and aged French and American oak barrels. The wine was then blended and bottled in June 2017.

THE WINE Dark vibrant red in colour with lifted aromas of black cherry and chocolate. On the palate concentrated dark fruit flavours are complimented by subtle oak characters of mocha and spice. Full bodied and well-structured with firm ripe tannins providing balance and length.

THE FOOD Excellent match with any grilled red meat or a rich casserole.

ANALYSIS Varietal: Shiraz Alcohol: 14.5% Acid: 6.4 g/l pH: 3.51 Sweetness: Dry
