Australia


Gone are the days of those artificial Chardonnays and Shirazs, Australia has really grown up as a wine country and has discovered its sense of regionality (don’t say ‘terroir’). The buzz words at the moment are ‘cool climate’ as areas like Tasmania, Yarra Valley etc are being planted to Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling.
