South Australia is located in the central south of Australia. Bordered to the south by the pristine Antarctic / Southern Ocean, it carries the mantle of being the “driest state in the driest continent”. The State is home to numerous very unique wine regions, each with their own geographic, geological and climatic conditions.
Producing approximately 50% of the total wine made in Australia, South Australia boasts several premium wine regions, including: Adelaide Hills 20 km East of Adelaide, Barossa Valley 70 km North East of Adelaide, Clare Valley 70 km North of Adelaide, Coonawarra 350 km South East of Adelaide. McLaren Vale 45 km South of Adelaide, and the Riverland 250 km East North East of Adelaide.
Each of these areas grows a range of varieties. At GISA we produce wine from the first 4 above listed regions. It is a commonly held belief that each region is ideally suited to growing 1 variety over the range of others.
We match the region with that variety to make what we believe is the best possible wine.
