The Southern Fleurieu's undulating slopes and gentle hills pose no limitations to viticulture. It is quite a distinct region, with the quality of the wines made to date almost certainly leading to further plantings and developments.
The climate is very strongly influenced by the vast expanses of water surrounding the region. The region's soils are suited to viticulture and support moderately vigorous vine growth.
The main wine styles produced include Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
