One of the catalysts in the new world wine revolution, Australia has a somewhat mixed reputation with regards to its wine production. Many discount brand wines popped up as a result of the initial success of small volume wineries, and somewhat diluted the market leaving consumers with mixed feelings about the quality of Australian wine. Beyond the heavily discounted supermarket bargain bin, Australia has been producing some of its best ever wine in recent years and is home to some worldwide respected wineries and winemakers. Benefiting from truly unique terroir and changing attitudes to mass-market wine, there has never been a better time to sample the delights of Australia’s winemaking genius.
