The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Pinot Noir: Does size matter? Emphatically not for pinot noir; these wines are all produced in small quantities, but in precisely the right regions.
Shiraz and friends: These eight wines come from eight regions spread across New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, a testament to the flexibility of shiraz in adapting to almost any combination of climate and soil. There is every reason to suppose it will be unruffled by such climate change as may occur over the next 50 years.
Cabernet Sauvignon and friends: The domination of Western Australia will continue to be a fact of wine life, although Coonawarra’s absence this year doesn’t mean its demise.
