AUSTRALIA

In 1788 the first vine cuttings from the Cape of Good Hope arrived at the penal colony with the First Fleet. It took over 40 years successfully to launch domestic production but things moved on apace. Nowadays Australia is the world's fourth biggest exporter of wine with 60% of production going overseas.

There are over 60 designated wine making regions across the country, and a total of over 160,000 hectares under vine. The vineyards are predominantly, and unsurprisingly, found in the cooler southern parts of the country. The climate though is still a significant challenge with serious drought an ongoing problem and the risk of bushfires sweeping the land an ever present threat.

All the major varieties are grown, and a large factor in the country's boom and continued success is the predominance of clear, varietal labelling appealing to english and non-english speakers alike, in a very congested and sometimes baffling market.

TASTING NOTES

Peace of Eden comes from two low-yielding vineyards on the Eastern facing slopes of the Barossa Ranges. Crystalline purity is the hallmark of this Riesling whose bright citrus-lime fragrance leads to a palate that is dazzlingly crisp and full of Granny Smith apple, pithy lemon and flecked with subtle petrol notes. A delicious, sinewy Riesling that deserves some serious attention.

TASTING NOTES

The 2013 vintage was a terrific year for high quality Barossa Shiraz. Yields were low due to a low crop-set, but ripening conditions were near perfect and the Shiraz grapes achieved beautiful ripeness, vivid colour and superb flavours. This is vibrant deep Barossa Shiraz in all its glory! Brooding dark plum, liquorice and chocolate combine with a fresh and vivid...
