Wines from this region are referred to in winemaking circles as "the middle palate of Australia". The red wine from this area is frequently used in small proportions of various multi-regional blends to give middle palate definition. The best wines from the region display a dark color and a rich, ripe bouquet, with the blackberry notes brighter than from Barossa wines, with the tannins quickly developing a velvety character. Although seductive at an early stage, the wines have deceptive cellaring potential.
