Wine Australia Masterclass Area :
For over forty years the Barossa Wine Show has been a key element in building best practice winemaking and wine quality in the Barossa. This masterclass highlights the diversity of the Barossa’s rare and distinguished wine offer, through these trophy winning wines from the 2017 show.
Since 1842 Barossa has become home to more than 550 independent grape growing families, many with the 6th generation still working the same plot of land, supplying quality grapes to more than 170 wine companies. It is a multi-layered cultural region, synonymous with fine wine, regional food, art, music and heritage.
The best Barossan wine sit comfortably alongside the great wines of the world. Barossa Shiraz and Eden Valley Riesling have led the way as regional heroes, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro, Grenache, Semillon and fortified wines all contributing to Barossa’s standing as Australia’s global wine region. Barossa offers rare, handmade wines from the world’s oldest vines.
Barossa incorporates both the Barossa Valley and Eden Valleys, making it one of the only wine areas in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions.
