Australian Cool Climate Wine Show

2014 Australian Cool Climate Wine Show


While the majority of wine grapes in Australia are grown in warmer regions, many of Australia’s super-premium, world class wines come from cooler regions. Experts attribute this to the slow ripening and accumulation of flavours promoted by cool conditions prior to harvest.

The Murrumbateman Cool Climate Wine Show began its life in 1999 and was born out of the vision and commitment that a small band of local grape growers and winemakers had to create a wine show that was truly dedicated to benchmarking the unique winestyles produced from cool climate wine regions.

 In 2011, and its 12th year, the show has “grown up”, and become the Australian Cool Climate Wine Show at Murrumbateman, an official title which more truly reflects its national status.
