Named from the Aboriginal word meaning ‘honeysuckle rise’, the Coonawarra was Australia’s first widely recognised wine region. Located along South Australia’s Limestone Coast, the Coonawarra hangs it hat on its Cabernet Sauvignon, which flourishes in its famous 100 kilometres of terra rossa soils. These rusty red loam and clay soils preside over a limestone base (ensuring quality drainage) and under a maritime climate they nourish the Coonawarra’s premier Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Shiraz, Chardonnay, Riesling, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Malbec and Merlot also thrive in the Coonawarra, where vines date back to 1890. The first winery in Coonawarra commenced by John Riddoch in 1896 is known today as the famous Wynns Coonawarra Estate.
