As you may be aware, Australia’s wine production has tripled over the last 25 years. All thanks to the ever-growing passion of Oz winemakers to produce some brilliant wines and share them with the rest of the world! The island continent has proven its eminence not only in the red wine category but in that of whites (White varietals and blends, both included) as well. From Chardonnay becoming Australia’s favourite white to the rising of new varieties like Prosecco, Arneis, Verduzzo, Marsanne, Fiano, Taminga and more, Australia’s white wine journey has so much to offer.
That said, we’ll talk about the white wine history of Australia some other day. For now, we have shortlisted the top five white varietals to let you know which wine regions grow them the best. This will directly shorten your search when you look out for some great Aussie white wines, for your next party! And yes, we can’t resist parties, so we are inviting ourselves…
Joking apart, without further ado, here are the top 5 white varietals and the regions wherein they gain the best flavours.

Also, make sure to read about the cellaring potential of white wines to age your favourite white for just the right time. Because the amount of work and patience behind a wine is worth giving it respect and attention. Cheers!
