Immense natural beauty
Eighty kilometres south of Adelaide is Currency Creek, a wine region heavily influenced by the moderating effects of both Lake Alexandrina and the Southern Ocean. The region’s first wine vintage was in 1972, three years after the first vines were planted
The dominant grape varieties are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Merlot. Currency Creek’s proximity to large bodies of water helps guard against extreme climatic variation, which in turn protects vines from damaging events such as spring frosts and hail.
Along with the immense natural beauty of the region it is also well-resourced in terms of water supply. Underground bores help to compensate for the light rainfall.
