Winemaker: Alex Russell
The Riverland in South Australia is a long-established, warm climate wine producing region, located east of the Barossa Valley, a 2½ hour drive north east of Adelaide. It is distinctly unique and offers an environment and landscape like no other, no surprise it is now the largest wine growing region in Australia.
The Riverland's history is strongly linked to irrigation and the area's suitability for growing vines. The region enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate and has vast acres of fertile soil and a readily available water source in the Murray River.
This area is also recognised for its unique style development of alternative wines. Alejandro Wines are pushing the boundaries with excellent value and great varietal wines.
