Australia’s wine regions are, like Australia’s wine, always improving, and the Fleurieu Peninsula cracks our top 30 thanks to its happily ameliorating culinary options. Just a short drive from Adelaide, this area has long been a producer of excellent and many varied wines, but now they are being beautifully matched with excellent and many varied meals, from McLaren Vale down to Victor Harbour and beyond.

One of the world’s great unsung wine regions, the ‘Flerr-yerr’ combines gorgeous grape country with sparkling coast and some Murray River country to boot. Boutique producers rub shoulders with big names, and getting lost in the leafy lanes inevitably yields some sort of comestible delight. The Star of Greece beach-side restaurant is a must-do.” – Max Anderson
