It's remote, windswept, miles from nowhere, incredibly beautiful and is home to some of Australia's finest wines. Its vast landscape has been scientifically poked, prodded, studied, surveyed, explored, evaluated and examined – and it has been declared one of the most ideal winegrowing regions in the state. Its wines are applauded and adored by the wine experts – the very first wines from the region are still one of the most awarded Western Australian wines today. Yet despite the astonishing critical acclaim and the incredible value for the quality, WA's Great Southern region is only now beginning to register on the radar of the general wine consciousness.
Too remote (approximately 360km from Perth) too large (approximately 100 x 150 kilometres square), the conditions too difficult, the region too big, the wineries too small, the subregions too varied, the wines too hard to categorise ... it's no wonder the Great Southern has been put in the 'too hard' basket for so long. But the wines it is producing are too good to ignore, and the people of the Great Southern Region are a tenacious bunch and they know they're not onto something just great. They're onto something spectacular.
