The Limestone Coast in South Australia is located in the southeastern corner of the state, bordering Victoria in the east. It is one of the most significant wine zones of the country, not only responsible for consistently producing some of the most highly acclaimed wines but also contributing almost one third of all quality wines produced in the state.
A wide range of grape varieties of both colors perform exceedingly well in the Limestone Coast but the red wines are of particular importance, none other than Cabernet Sauvignon which produces some of the most sought after wines. Shiraz and Merlot are the other prominent red grapes. The cooler parts of the zone are suitable for white varieties like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Viognier.
