Other important Australian reds besides Shiraz include Grenache, Mourvedre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, along with small quantities of Tempranillo, Malbec and a few others.

Pinot Noir performs beautifully in Western Australia, while Grenache and Morvedre can be found in several areas, including New South Wales and Barossa. These two Rhone varieties are often blended together; recently a highly acclaimed and popular Austrlaian red is GSM, referring to three grapes: Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. This blend is loosely based on the famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine from France's Rhone Valley.

Excellent versions of Cabernet Sauvignon are produced in several reigions including the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and Langhorne Creek.
