NSW Treasures

The 16 wine regions of NSW are diverse in terroir and climate, some of which produce Australia’s leading whites and reds. From world class Semillon in the Hunter Valley, exceptional Riesling in Canberra, mineral Chardonnay from Tumbarumba, fruity Pinot Noir in the Southern Highlands and the most prized cool climate Shiraz of Murrumbateman, there is quality to be found all over this relatively overlooked state. Some other common varieties grown in NSW include Verdelho, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
