Australian Wine by Region and Style
by Christina Pickard
Few corners of the wine world defy its stereotype more than Australia. Sure, there are kangaroos and crocodiles, dusty red flatlands and sparkling white sand beaches. But there’s also craggy mountains, lush pastures, misty mornings and crisp, cool evenings. That’s not to mention varied soils and more than 100 different grape varieties planted across the country in 65 designated wine regions. Australia is a vastly more diverse winemaking country than it’s given credit.
