SOME INSIGHT INTO THE WINE REGIONS WE FAVOUR
🇨🇱 CHILE, has a long viticultural history for a New World wine region dating to the 16th century when the Spanish conquistadors brought Vitis vinifera vines with them as they colonized the region. In the mid-19th century, French wine varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenère and Cabernet Franc were introduced.
Primary red wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenere, Syrah, Malbec and Pinot Noir.
Primary white wines: Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
🇦🇷 ARGENTINA, is the fifth largest producer of wine in the world. Argentine wine, has its roots in Spain. During the Spanish colonization of the Americas, vine cuttings were brought to Santiago del Estero in 1557. There are many different varieties of grapes cultivated in Argentina, reflecting the country’s many immigrant groups. The French brought Malbec, which makes most of Argentina’s best-known wines. The Italians brought vines that they called Bonarda, although Argentine Bonarda appears to be the Douce noir of Savoie.
Primary red wines: Malbec, Bonarda, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah Merlot, and Tempranillo.
Primary white wines: Pedro Gimenez, Torrontes Riojano, Chardonnay, Chenin and Torrontés Sanjuanino.
🇪🇸 SPAIN, has over 2.9 million acres (over 1.17 million hectares) of vineyards planted, making it the most widely planted wine producing nation. The third largest producer of wine in the world, the largest being France followed by Italy. This is due, in part, to the very low yields and wide spacing of the old vines planted on the dry, infertile soil found in many Spanish wine regions. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 400 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the country’s wine production is from only 20 grape varieties.
Primary red wines: Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Monastrell.
Primary whites wine: Albariño, Palomino, Airen, and Macabeo; and the three cava grapes Parellada, Xarel·lo, and Macabeo.
🇦🇺 AUSTRALIA, is the world’s fourth largest exporter of wine with approximately 750 million litres a year to the international export market with only about 40% of production consumed domestically. Wine is produced in every state, with more than 60 designated wine regions totalling approximately 160,000 hectares; however, Australia’s wine regions are mainly in the southern, cooler parts of the country, with vineyards located in South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, Tasmania, and Queensland. The country has no native grapes, and Vitis vinifera varieties were introduced from Europe and South Africa in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Some varieties have been cultivated by Australian viticulturists, for example, Cienna and Tarrango.
Primary red wines: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Primary White wines: Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Sémillon, and Riesling
