The Blackwood River Valley is one of Australia’s newest wine regions and also one of its most picturesque with lush pastures, majestic trees and gentle winding rivers. Nestled in the heart of the South West of WA, it is now home to 19 wine producers and 50 vineyards and 15 cellar doors with grape varieties include chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc, semillion and shiraz and smaller plantings of viognier and pinot noir.
Since first plantings in 1976, the area has taken advantage of its favourable soil and Mediterranean climate (dry summers and wet winters), producing high quality, award winning wines.
The flavours of this distinct region manifest in complex, earthy undertones for the reds and golden honey flavours in the whites. In addition, the region has built a reputation for its fruit wines and ciders. Definitely a region not to miss.
