Gurvinder Talks Australia
In this episode of True Grape, Tidings writer and Contributing Editor Gurvinder Bhattia talks with Matthew Lane of Australia’s Wynns Coonawara Estate. It’s Wynns’ Shiraz 2009 that holds their attention this time. Australia’s winemaking history follows the typical journey taken by pretty much every winemaking nation. In other words, Australia has had its ups and downs. Hitting the heights of popularity with its almost singular production of shiraz to experiencing the downturn of public interest in its product, Australia has been able to climb out of that rut to achieve greatness. Australian winemakers have come to truly embrace their terroir – climate, soil conditions and all – to produce what wine lovers contend is wine that exemplifies what it means to focus on quality and produce the best possible wine.
