Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Natural and organic wines from the Adelaide Hills feature heavily on the Noma wine list. “Their winemakers are youthful, energetic, very interesting and talented,” says Kleppe. “And they’re really looking after their vineyards, to produce the most delicious wines.”
The Adelaide Hills is at the centre of South Australia’s wine country. Located in the Mount Lofty Ranges east of Adelaide, bordered by the Barossa Valley to the North and McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek to the South. Important to note, Adelaide Hills is also the closest wine region to Adelaide, making it the perfect quick getaway, weekend long lunch or cellar door tour destination. You'll find an exquisite range of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz and Merlot. We recommend visiting the home of Australia’s most famous red wine, Grange, at Penfolds at Magill Estate, just 15 minutes from the city. (The Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant is an amazing added bonus).
Highlights: Some of Noma's favourites include Lucy Margaux, Commune of Buttons, Manon and Gentle Folk Wines. Try them around Adelaide at wine bars such as La Buvette and Blackwood restaurant.
