Australian wines in the Old Dart

I had to read a recent piece in the Daily Wine News twice before believing what I was seeing.  At a presentation of Australian wines at the Australian Wine School in London, under the auspices of Wine Australia, Tim Atkin MW said ‘Australia is more exciting today than at any point in my life as a wine writer.’ He was joined by Andrew Jefford, the distinguished English wine author who recently said that top end Australian chardonnays could effortlessly compete with grand cru Burgundies.

Do you agree, James?

I'm not James! However, I'd have to agree. Not because I'm jingoistic... but it would be hard to argue that there have ever been as many styles of wine available in Australia as there are right now. So, no matter what floats your boat, there are now multiple options to satisfy. Whereas 50 years ago it was pretty much only fortifieds.

I am glad that I have observed this blog. Ultimately anything not a crap, which we understand quite usually. The web site is lovingly maintained and up to date. So it really should be, thank you for this welcome transform.
