Limestone Coast is the name of the larger region southeast of Adelaide containing Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, Mount Benson, Robe and Naracoote Ranges. All of these smaller GIs have their own varietal specialties but the unifying factor would be that the Limestone Coast catchall is the coolest region in South Australia.
As one of Australia’s oldest wine producing regions, the Clare Valley with its warm days and cooling afternoon and night breezes, is synonymous for producing slow ripening complex wines. A fine, deep red wine with aromas of blackcurrant fruits, complemented by herbaceous mint and layers of toasty oak. The palate abounds with ripe dark fruits, lifted spice and firm tannins.
