Southern Highlands wineries featured prominently at the recent 2014 Australian Highlands Wine Show that was judged in Bowral. This small competition is a show with altitude, inviting entries from any Australian vineyard located at 500 metres or higher.
White Wine India Regions represented this year included Hilltops, Mudgee, Orange, Murrumbateman, the Strathbogie Ranges, Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley. The home region - relatively tiny in hectares planted - dominated, winning four of the nine gold medals, and six of the 16 silver medals.
White Wine In India The Southern Highlands, which encompasses the towns of Bowral, Mittagong, Berrima and Moss Vale, is just 60 to 90 minutes' drive from Sydney and has 15 cellar doors, making it a worthwhile wine-touring destination.

Indian Sauvignon Blanc If you ask a typical wine consumer to imagine a California red, they’ll almost certainly think of Cabernet Sauvignon. If you ask that same consumer to imagine a white, they’ll almost certainly think of Chardonnay.

More than a quarter of the state’s red wine grape plantings are Cabernet Sauvignon. And more than half of all white wine grape plantings are Chardonnay.
