The commercial successes of Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc in the 80s not only laid a strong groundwork for the wine sectors in Australia, but also highlighted the vast potential and richness of their wine regions. Australia, with its sprawling landscapes, boasts a myriad of wine-producing pockets, each with its unique climate and terroir. From the warm, dry regions of Barossa Valley and Mclaren Vale, renowned for their bold Shiraz and southern French varieties, to the cooler climates of Victoria, which produces elegant Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays as well as aromatic varieties like Riesling/ Sauvignon Blanc etc, the diversity is astounding. The Hunter Valley's Semillon and Margaret River's Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux blends further underscore Australia's prowess in producing world-class wines.

New Zealand, though smaller in size, is no less diverse. The country's wine regions stretch from the subtropical Northland to the continental Central Otago, each offering distinct characteristics. The maritime climate of Marlborough, characterized by its rocky, well-draining soils and extended, sunny days moderated by chilly evenings, has made it a powerhouse for Sauvignon Blanc production. Meanwhile, regions like Lake Wanaka, Hawke's Bay and Wairarapa are gaining acclaim for their reds, especially Pinot Noir and Syrah.

Both Australia and New Zealand have consistently demonstrated their commitment to quality, innovation, and sustainability in winemaking in the past 20 years. These nations have nurtured a culture of excellence, with winemakers who are deeply connected to the land and are constantly pushing boundaries to produce wines that reflect the true essence of their regions. Our collection stands as evidence of the incredible diversity and the progressing artistry in winemaking, showcasing a vast array of terroirs and a nod to the expertise of winemakers in the southern hemisphere.
