Wine Styles

The region is renowned for its Shiraz, winning accolades around the globe, but the Barossa is much more than Shiraz. Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mataro (also known as Mourvedre) and Merlot are in plentiful supply and wine styles include the famous GSM Rhone style blends.

Eden Valley Riesling has gained an enviable reputation, with characteristic crisp citrus flavours. Other traditional white varieties in the Barossa include the versatile Semillon and finely structured Chardonnay.

In recent years, Barossa winemakers have successfully introduced new varieties to regional line-up. Viognier has become a Barossa speciality, both as a stand alone variety and, uniquely, blended with Shiraz. Other new varieties include Tempranillo, Zinfandel and Marsanne.
