A wine trip to Australia wouldn’t be complete without snapping a few photos of the terra rossa soil found in Coonawarra, part of the Limestone Coast.
Most of Australia’s great Cabernet Sauvignons are produced in this region. Overall production in the region is 90% red. All of the early vineyards were planted on this famous red soil, but the region has since expanded a bit.
The guys from Majella took us to see the soil after our memorable breakfast. Our other favorite producers from the region: Parker, Wynns, Leconfield and Penley Estates.
