Australia has been the World of Wines biggest success over the last 35 years. Driven by innovation, investment and a belief in making the best possible wines they have established a reputation for quality, consistency and value. Such great areas as Coonawarra, Hunter, Barossa, Clare, Yarra and many more, lead the top end. Many larger, new expanding areas such as Riverina are producing excellent more everyday wines. Shiraz and Chardonnay started the rush but now Rieslings, Semillons, Cabernets, Merlots, more than make their mark.
