Throughout the dynamic Granite Belt wine country, red and white varieties grow almost equally between red and white varieties. Shiraz, being the first grapes planted in the region, is the most distinctive wine style, followed by cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, semillon, merlot, sauvignon blanc and verdelho – although sauvignon blanc and merlot are not as prominent as the other grape varietals.
