GREAT SOUTHERN WINES OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Wine growing and wine making are difficult pursuits even in the best seasons. These wines all play to the real underlying strength of Great Southern – the fact that the region experiences a maritime Mediterranean climate that delivers steady and defined seasons. These are characterised by generous winter rainfall, moderate spring temperatures and a long, dry growing season throughout summer, to the end of harvest in autumn. The climate is perfect for premium table wine growing; cool with dry summers and wet winters.
