EVOLUTION: Style, variety & region. Australia burst onto the export markets in the 1980s and since then has offered the world fresh, vibrant, fruit-forward wines of exceptional value. Fast-forward to the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, and intense, concentrated examples of Shiraz, Grenache, and red blends dominated the Australian fine wine story. In between these two extremes lies the Australian premium, regional diverse offering that has always existed and continues to dramatically evolve. Taste through wine styles from classic regions and discover the emergence of new regions, particularly cooler-climate regions. Savour the evolution of Australian Shiraz, Chardonnay and both red and white blends.
