Australia in many ways epitomises freedom and attitude in the New World. Producing every style of wine imaginable from innumerable grape varieties - the most famous being Shiraz - innovation and experimentation have been the hallmarks of this great wine producing nation for decades. Indeed, Australian wine often hits a sweet spot in the relationship between price and quality, and as such is extremely popular in export markets. This led to overproduction and oversupply in the 1980s and 1990s as big brands began to dominate the industry, eventually damaging the reputation that early producers had worked so hard to promote. Nowadays we are witnessing a dazzling return to form, with ever more artisan and terroir-focused producers crafting wonderfully expressive and appealing wines, as they seek to demonstrate that Australia is a worthy contender.
