Australia's newest wine group, Barrington Estates, plans to export 80% of its wines from its 6400 tonne crush next vintage to European and US markets.

Nick Haselgrove, chief winemaker said that Barrington would produce "a super premium portfolio of icon brands." He predicted that the export market, with Haselgrove as the largest component, would be 200,000 cases.

Barrington which went on a buying spree last year acquired Yarraman Road Estate in New South Wales, Hay Shed Hill at Margaret River in Western Australia and its two most recent acquisitions were Mount Avoca in Victoris and Haselgrove in South Australia.
