Gippsland Wines are distinctive. They are flavoursome with strong varietal features. Generally they are not mainstream Australian wines, more full flavoured than full bodied and more elegant than harsh. They are good wines to accompany foods. Above all each winery is offering a unique experience.
Fruits are ripening quicker and are sweeter. Vintage (grape picking) is now 3-4 weeks earlier that 40 years ago. Paradoxically the frost damage risk in Spring is now longer by 3-4 weeks because the air is drier and there are more clear night skies.
