Vintage Cluster possesses 1,500 hectares of grape plantations, mainly located at Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, and Coonawarra.
Hot and dry climate is the gift for Barossa Valley being one of Australia's oldest producing regions. It is home to the finest vineyards in South Australia, with its most famous grape variety, Shiraz. The climate here is ideal for brewing full-bodied red wines, reinforced wines, and full-bodied white wines.
The McLaren Vale, one of the oldest producing areas, is located in the southern part of Adelaide. The annual average precipitation is 560mm, and the soil types are diverse, with various combinations of sandy, clay and limestone soils. The main grape varieties are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Semillon, and Sauvignon Blanc.
The Clare Valley is one of the northernmost producing areas in South Australia. Due to soil type, altitude and climate here are diverse, the grape growing is also unique. Although the climate is hot and dry, the vineyards do not need to be irrigated, so the grapes produced here are rich in flavour and the main grape varieties include Chardonnay, Semillon, and Riesling.
Coonawarra is the home of Australia’s best Cabernet Sauvignon. Thanks to the typical maritime climate, dry and mild summer, perfect location--only 100 km from the coastline, and Australia's most famous red soil, it is a reputation that has been earned over more than 120 years.
The Riverland is the largest wine producing region in Australia and is home to 1,000 wine grape growers representing 20,600 hectares of vines. The two main types of soils are river valley soils and Mallee soils, and the mean rainfall is 135mm during the growing season. The main grape varieties grown in the Riverland are Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Viognier and Grenache.
