Padthaway is a relatively new South Australian wine region established in 1963 on the Limestone Coast, but not becoming a named GI until 1999. It was developed primarily by two of the largest Australian wine conglomerates, Lindeman’s and BRL Hardy because of soil similarities to the more famous Coonawarra region to its south. Although plantings of Shiraz and Cabernet outmeasure all others, the region is probably most associated with Chardonnay (25% of total plantings) thanks to the popular Lindeman’s bottling of that grape with the region’s name on it in the 1990s.
