Riverland

Riverland, the most productive part of the South Eastern Australia GI, is a vast sprawling sea of vines straddling the Murray River from the town of Morgan in the west, eastward right to the state border with Victoria where the vineyard tracts continue but now fall under the Murray-Darling GI designation. Dependent on the Murray for irrigation and largely producing bulk wines and undistinguished blends, yet the region produces a few wines of note and is responsible for a number of viticultural advances, most notably mechanized vine pruning. One of the top wines of the region is the Echelon Petit Verdot by Kingston Estate, made from the largest single planting of this, the rarest Bordeaux variety, south of the Equator.
