Yarra Valley in Victoria is arguably the best Australian wine region for cool climate wines. It is a bit warmer than Burgundy but at the same time a little cooler than Bordeaux. Add the rich and well structured soils and you will get a perfect recipe which is ideal for viticulture.
De Bortoli Wines is using classic grape varieties for such climate as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. But don’t you forget to taste De Bortoli Shiraz, Sauvignon, Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon while there on Three Koalas Winery Tasting Tour of Yarra Valley :))
