The Grampians is an Australian wine region located in Victoria, slightly west of Melbourne. It is located near the Grampians National Park and the Pyrenees hills. The area is majorly dominated by red wine production, particularly Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although Other Varieties are produced its this stunning region. GET FREIGHTED Cellar Door offers you a chance to taste and experience some of what Grampians has to offer.
Sandy, clay filled soils based on granite have also been a particular feature of the region's terroir. These are relatively infertile and free-draining, but still hold enough water to keep vines hydrated throughout the dry growing season. The small amount of stress that these soils bring make for a harder-working vine that will produce concentrated, high-quality grapes that create intensely flavored wines.
While Shiraz is by far the most important variety in the Grampians, many other varieties can be found in the vineyards here. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are used here in the production of sparkling wines, while Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling and Pinot Gris are among the top still wines.
