Red soil for red wines
eighty kilometers north of Adelaide, the capital of the state of South Australia, lies the Barossa region with its Mediterranean climate and varied terroirs. It consists of two very different valleys, Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, which are very well suited for the cultivation of red and white grape varieties. The soils of the Barossa Valley, located 200 to 250 meters above sea level, are red to brown, rich, alluvial and deep. They are therefore ideal for red wines. On the other hand, in the Eden Valley, located about 500 meters above sea level, the best white wines thrive on the acidic, gray and stony soils. The vines here have plenty of water reserves needed for ripening, resulting from generous rainfall in the spring and cold, wet winters. The dry, warm conditions of summer and fall produce fully ripe grapes with wonderful flavors.
