Australian Wine Regions Growing Our Best Non-Alcoholic Wines

Wine Regions Australia - Where Our Premium Grapes Grow

At Edenvale, we source our fruit from some of the best Australian wine regions to provide the highest-quality range of non-alcoholic wines. Most of our fruit comes from South Eastern Australia, including the regions of Langhorne Creek and Currency Creek on the Fleurieu Peninsula as well as the famous Barossa Valley, Riverland and the Murray-Darling. We have also stretched all the way over to Western Australia to Frankland River to find fruit for our Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, a challenging exercise, but the result was worth it.

Here we share information about these superb Australian wine regions - where they are located, their distinct terroir and other features that combine to make many of the varietals in our non-alcoholic wine collection

So - let’s get to know some of the most famous Australian wine regions

 

South Australian Wine Regions

 

The Barossa Valley - one of the best wine areas in the world 

The Barossa Valley is one of the world’s great wine regions and is located in South Australia, about 56 km northeast of the city of Adelaide. It is instantly recognisable from its charming rolling hills and valleys, much of which is covered in a patchwork of vineyards. This impressive area is home to some of the oldest vineyards, wineries and wine areas in Australia. The region has a Mediterranean climate with warm-climate vineyards on the valley floor and cooler vineyards up in the surrounding hills. This diversity is what allows the region to produce everything from delicate white wines to the most powerful reds. There is no question - this is a Mecca for wine lovers and one of the best wine regions in Australia

 

The Fleurieu Peninsula - a popular South Australian wine-growing region 

The Langhorne Creek and Currency Creek wine-growing regions are two of five belonging to the esteemed Fleurieu zone, located south of Adelaide city centre. This is one of the most charming-looking wine regions of South Australia. It is noted for its hilly landscape and Mediterranean climate, influenced by the surrounding ocean, making the region cool by South Australian standards. The clay loams and buckshot gravel soils are well suited to viticulture and support moderate vine growth. 

Why not try our Premium Reserve Selection Grenache Shiraz Mataro, which sources most of its fruit from the Barossa Valley and Fleurieu Peninsula? 

 

The Riverland - the largest-volume wine-growing area in Australia  

The Riverland wine region is located in South Australia, northeast of the city of Adelaide, about 200 km inland. It is the largest wine region in Australia in terms of volume, accounting for half of South Australia’s output and almost a quarter of the national total. The area is characterised by a Mediterranean climate with long sunny days that give way to noticeably cooler nights. The soils of the Riverland vary significantly. The two main types are river valley soils, consisting of sandy loams over clay subsoils, and Mallee soils on higher ground, consisting of wind-blown sands over lime and clay layers.

 

The Murray Darling Wine Region  

The Murray Darling spans the Murray River and its confluence with the Darling River in northwestern Victoria and southwestern New South Wales. It is one of the largest wine-growing regions in Australia in terms of volume. Like the Riverland, the region enjoys a Mediterranean climate with long sunny days that give way to noticeably cooler nights. The soil is unique to the Murray River system and is known technically as calcareous earth, ranging from brown to red-brown loamy sand, sandy loam or loam. The surface is neutral to moderately alkaline with increasing alkalinity at depth as textures become more clayey and calcareous.

 

West Australia Wine Regions  

The Frankland River is one of the great Western Australian wine regions, about 360 km south of Perth. It is one of the most distinguished sub-regions within the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. The region boasts a cool continental climate influenced largely by the breeze of the Southern Ocean. The soils here are ironstone-based gravels and duplex sandy loams over clay sub-soils derived from granitic outcrops. These have weathered over time to create the undulating rolling hills that define the region.

Why not try, Edenvale Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, which sources most of its fruit from the Frankland River?
