Clare Valley

Northernmost winegrowing area (GI) in the Australian State of South Australia northwest of Barossa Valley, There are the sub-areas Auburn, Clare, Hill River, Polish Hill River, Sevenhill and Watervale. It is one of the oldest wine growing areas in the country; the first Sevenhill Cellars winery was founded here in 1851. The mountains lend a somewhat cooler climate, but despite the drought, most of them are artificial irrigation, which is reflected in lower yields. The most important types of white wine are Riesling and Sémillon, the most important types of red wine Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Shiraz. Riesling has special qualities and is also lavishly developed. The importance is also documented by the 27-kilometer "Riesling Trail" for hikers and cyclists that leads from Auburn to Clare. Well-known producers are Eldrig, Grosset, Knappstein, Leasingham, Mitchell, Paulett's, Pikes and Wolf pale,
