Can’t travel to your favourite Australian wine region right now?

Then, let the vino come to you!

Our friends at Laithwaite’s Wine People are featuring a super selection of reds and whites grown in some of the country’s favourite spots.

Get your hands on these delicious drops.

Shiraz, McLaren Vale, SA

What: Deep River Black Label 2020.

McLaren Vale is home to many of Australia’s most iconic reds. It’s partly thanks to growers like Mike Rogers. Mike’s vines grow on iron-rich soils near the Onkaparinga River, which has carved out spectacular deep gorges through the foothills.

Tasting notes: Experience vibrant mulberry and spice on a rich, smooth palate. It all makes for a profoundly satisfying, full-bodied Shiraz.


Taste the magic of McLaren Vale from the comfort of your lounge chair.

Merlot, Cowra, NSW

What: Leogate Gatecrasher 2016.

It might not be common knowledge, but Cowra in the Central Ranges is home to several top boutique vineyards. It’s one of a few wine regions within a few hours’ drive of Sydney and part of a fantastic wine trail that leads from the Hunter Valley to Mudgee and down to Orange, Cowra, and Canberra.

Tasting notes: The Gatecrasher Merlot fills the palate with plenty of plush plum fruit. An absolute delight.

Pinot Grigio, Adelaide Hills, SA

What: Avera 2021.

Barely a hop, skip, and a jump from the SA capital, the aptly name Adelaide Hills is a gorgeous area with a rich grape-growing history. Here, lighter style whites and reds thrive, and this Pinot Grigio is no exception.

Tasting notes: Hints of fresh-cut spring flowers entice, while flavours of nashi pear, white peach, and citrus make for a dry, crisp white that’s perfect for a sunny day.

Sauvignon Blanc, King Valley, VIC

What: Primero 2020.

Located in Victoria’s High Country region, the picturesque King Valley is renowned for its premium cool-climate wines. They include classics like this Sauvignon Blanc and many Italian styles.

Tasting notes: The full-flavoured Primero delights with flavours of passionfruit, gooseberry, and citrus with a subtle and refreshing minerality.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, WA

What: Howard Park Miamup 2017.

The Margaret River is one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world. Surrounded on three sides by stunning coastline, its ocean breezes run through the vineyards and are the secret weapon for growing these world-class wines. Cabernet and Chardonnay are signature varieties, and Howard Park demonstrates why.

Tasting notes: This is a triumph of blackberry, cassis, bay leaf, and black olive flavours.


All roads lead to Margaret River. When they don't, let the featured Cabernet Sauvignon transport you there.

Pinot Noir, Tamar Valley, TAS

What: Holm Oak The Protégé 2020.

Located north of Launceston with a river snaking through its heart, the Tamar Valley is instantly satisfying with its mostly boutique wineries found among gorgeous scenery. This is Tasmania’s oldest grape-growing area and its winemakers have clearly perfected their craft.

Tasting notes: The Protégé is something to behold. Fresh and fruity, it’s bursting with cherry and strawberry fruits on a silky palate. Moreish and easy drinking.


The Tamar Valley deserves a ringing endorsement for its wines, including its Pinot Noir.
