About Clare Valley
Clare Valley Facts
Clare Valley is northwest of the Barossa Valley, and home to some of Australia's finest Rieslings. It is distinctly cooler and yields more precise and sometimes more austere wines, with typical minty undertones and more red than dark berry flavors. Sauvignon Blanc is increasing in popularity, no doubt riding the coattails of New Zealand's success with the variety in the export market, and is planted here too.
