Australian Wine
Australian wine is sunshine in a glass. It generally delivers an ultraripe style of wine that's extreme: heavily fruit laden, loud in extract, potent in alcohol, dark in color, and deeply aromatic—not surprising given the climate. Australian wine is very popular, particularly in the United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand, Canada, and Germany—the five countries that import the majority of Australian wine.

Australian Wine
Although Australia commands a lot of shelf space in major export markets, it's actually the seventh largest wine producing country by volume after France, Italy, Spain, the United States, Argentina, and China. Australian Wine

Australian Wine
Australian wine has become hugely successful because the bulk of it names the grape variety on the label, offers loads of clean fruit flavor, and is generally quite wellpriced. Critics argue the wine is unsubtle, unchallenging, and overripe, but Australia is more than this when you look to top wines by this country's better producers.

Australian Wine
Wolf Blass Platinum Label Barossa Shiraz 2002 is a fine example of what this island can do. This wine combines subtle layers of black fruit, chocolate, and smoky flavors, as well as fine, ripe tannins and vanilla-spice oak beautifully integrated into the palate. It is built to last.

Australian Wine
Wolf Blass Yellow Label Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the bestselling Australian red wines in North America. Not surprising, really. It consistently provides easy pleasure with ripe tannins, perfect balance, and openhanded amounts of black currant, cassis, vanilla, spice, and mint in the glass, and a long finish after the swallow.

Australian Wine
Last year, Australian [yellowtail] was the top-selling wine brand in the U.S. The [yellowtail] range is comprised of eleven varietal-labeled bottles that cost about $6 and five single-variety reserve wines that cost about $9. Some of them are persuasive value for the money—particularly the Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet-Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This may surprise you, but the wines are actually not dry—the sugar is disguised by bold fruit and balancing acidity—yet another case of wine drinkers thinking dry and drinking sweet.

Australian Wine
[yellowtail] Chardonnay 2005 starts with the perfume of sun-ripened oranges and lemons and carries through with zesty flavors of bright, fleshy citrus fruit, and then finishes with vanilla and coconut.

Australian Wine
[yellowtail] Merlot 2005 is pure cherryvanilla with a creamy mouthfeel.

Australian Wine
[yellowtail] Cabernet-Merlot 2004 layers cherry-vanilla with clean cassis flavor and gentle tannins.

Australian Wine
[yellowtail] Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 is perhaps the best value of all with rich blackberry liqueur, leather, and enough concentration and length to deliver considerable value.
