Great Southern Wines

The Great Southern has an amazing array of natural landscapes and is also a flourishing wine region. It is made up of 5 distinct sub regions – Denmark, Albany, Mt Barker, Porongurup & Frankland. Each has its own distinct terroir. My favourite is Denmark (yes, I am a bit biased!). The first vines in Denmark itself were planted in the 1970s (yes, very young compared to old world wine regions but the wine industry here has come a long way very quickly and is giving the old world wine regions a run for their money). In my professional opinion, the white wines are certainly the ones to look out for in the Denmark region – sauvignon blanc, semillion, chardonnay and in the reds give the pinot noir a try. If you really want to appreciate wine then go on wine tour of the area. This way you can relax and take it all in and not have to worry about anything except having an enjoyable day out.
