For our look at an #aussiewine region this week we're heading to Great Southern in @westernaustralia with this #regram from @foresthillwines - Perfect #greatsouthernwine picking weather! That peak in the background behind the mist sits at 670m, great spot for #riesling and #Chardonnay. The Great Southern is made up of five distinct subregions. Inland, with a continental climate and moderate rainfalls are Mt Barker, where the first plantings were made at Forest Hill; the Frankland River, renowned for its very fine Rieslings; and granite-studded Porongurup, home to one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges. At the bottom, on the coast, with a maritime climate and higher rainfall are Albany – once home to the whaling industry, but now home to tiny vineyards like Willoughby Park’s Kalgan River Vineyard (Halliday calls it a “mighty mouse of a vineyard”) and Denmark, famous for its lush Karri forests and spectacular seaside scenery … now making a name for itself with its spectacular wine. Along with establishing what areas produced the best wines, the Great Southern has pretty much established what grape varieties it’s good at. It’s good at the classics. Rieslings are scintillatingly fresh, nervy, and linear, and astonish with their intensity and purity. Chardonnays are crisp, elegant, flinty and polished, with great flavour and texture. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc shine here as well, vibrantly grassy and herbaceous, but with a tangy tropical fruit zing. Savoury cool climate Shiraz, rich in pepper and spice, fine-boned, deeply flavoured Cabernet, and supple, elegant, evocative Pinot Noir predominate in the reds.

Spunk Nat 2017. They said you'd never make it. #spunk2017 #v17 #petnat #greatsouthernwine

It has been a productive few days in the Margaret River and Great Southern wine regions (this is the car boot stash that remains - It has been raining a lot, so the ones we were saving for a rainy day were scoffed immediately and didn't make the group pic). Note the cask and trusty cheapo non-winery sparkling red waiting patiently in the background. They know their time will come #thirstytraveller #margaretriverwine #greatsouthernwine #wineoclock🍷

A new release from Forest Hill winemaker Guy Lyons. It's a ripper. Nostalgic yet racy. Awesome seeing how the younger generations of winemakers in the region are expressing themselves w/ classic regional varieties like this. Btw, how good is Porongurup Riesling!? Great story behind the wine & its gorgeous label. I had a chat to Guy recently & in his words... "The vineyard is called Springviews and is a south facing site on the west side of the Porongurups. Awesome spot. The property has sping fed soaks in the middle of the property but the soils are all old laterite based. Planted in 1985, and interestingly the Riesling cuttings came from the Forest Hill vineyard (block1). The site is dry grown and quite cool, getting the southerly breezes. For the last few years the Riesling has gone to the Howard park Porongurup Riesling.
Label name is Lowboi, which is name of the farm my mum grew up on in Tambelup. Artwork is Bella Kelly who was an incredible Noongar artist in the great southern. She painted a lot of landscapes of the Stirlings and Porongurup range." Regarding the wine... "Chill it and give it an hour to open up, really mineral aroma, smells like wet stone and bath salts to me. Has about 4.5g/l sugar too." #lowboiriesling #foresthillwines #guylyons #senseofplace #terroir #terwahhh #porongurup #lowboi #greatsouthernproduce #greatsouthernwine #riesling

Introducing the new release @alkoomiwines 2017 White Label Chardonnay which retails for $15 a pop.

Alkoomi hail from the Frankland River in WA’s Great Southern Wine Region. Alkoomi is an Aboriginal name meaning ‘a place we chose’. And the logo is a depiction of the unusual grass tree which grows in the same gravelly soils as the vines.

This bottle has a super power. The power of making its lemony-coloured contents vanish very fast! On the nose it has lovely vibrant grapefruit notes alongside baking spice, nuts and fresh orchard fruits. In the mouth it’s juicy and refreshing with a minerality to it and lovely melon and vanilla infused peach notes coming through.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #sample #tcweekdaywine #tctastingnotes

So stoked with this spanking new release from @lowboiwines This Porongurup Riesling is not only about the beautiful art on the bottle, but as much about the art that lives inside. How much better can WA Riesling get?! ⚡️💥 #greatsouthernwine #lowboi #porongurup #riesling #drygrown #1985 #bellakelly #sommswithattitude #swa

That’s a brand new sign for our front entrance 👍 #cellardoor #winery #greatsouthernwa #greatsouthernwine #amazingalbany #denmarkwa

First release of our 2017 Riesling from Springviews Vineyard. The incredible artwork by Bella Kelly, a massive thank you to her family for the privilege of using it on our labels. Also thanks to @graphicas_design for all the label work! #bellakelly #lowboiwines #porongurup #greatsouthernwine

Happy FRIYAY! Cheers to the weekend with @myattsfield_vineyards 🥂

Not a bad night to be sipping on this beauty. Just about sold out of this one which is a shame! Delicious and so refreshing in these warmer nights #rosé #shirazrosé #gilbertwines #lovethelabel #lovethewine #refreshing #mtbarker #greatsouthernwine #greatsouthernwa #amazingsouthcoast #familyrun

Newly released label Lowboi is sure to shine.. I have been honoured to work with the great paintings of Noongar artist Bella Kelly 1915-1994 for Springviews Vineyard, Porongurup. This is an amazing Riesling #greatsouthernwine
