The Barossa is undoubtedly one of Australia’s greatest wine regions. It is nowadays a mainstay of the Australian ultra-fine market and home to large, medium and small wine producers. Its old vine legacy is a key pillar of the region’s identity, but this is underpinned by the variations of landscape, geology and micro-climates. The diversity of styles is remarkable.
This eJournal by Andrew Caillard MW and Angus Hughson explores the Barossa in 2022 charting its history and future with tasting notes and reviews of over 350 wines including a focus on local Grenache and Mataro.
