Caledonia Australis

Certified Organic

Inspired by a landscape that reminded him of his beloved Scotland, explorer and squatter Angus McMillan was so moved by his first view of eastern Victoria from Mount Macleod in 1839, that he “...named it at the moment Caledonia Australis”. Caledonia, an old name for Scotland, and Australis, meaning southern is the region now known as Gippsland. Today certain privileged vineyard sites around the Gippsland town of Leongatha are proving to have the terroir essential for producing high quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines.

Caledonia Australis was the vision of a group of wine enthusiasts in the early 1990s to create quality Burgundian style wines, assisted by our talented wine maker and Master of Wine, Martin Williams, who shares this vision. Their approach to winemaking is true to Burgundy style. They seek the natural expression of regionality to produce wines that faithfully reflect their vineyards strengths and uniqueness. They embrace the principles of minimal winemaking intervention, applying contemporary technology as appropriate to achieve similar or superior results to traditional techniques. The results are wines of classic style and outstanding quality.
