But unlike many countries, which add Australian wines to their menus, Australia tends to drink its own. Reportedly, less than 20% of the Australian market is made up of imported wines.
There are something like 65 wine regions in the country and most of the wines we sampled came from regions around Adelaide.
Late 2019 and the early part of 2020 have not been kind to the country, with searing temperatures and seemingly countless wildfires. It's too early to tell if the wine production will be greatly affected but there are fears of some grape skins being contaminated by smoke. Hopefully none that we tated will be affected, because they were all pretty good. Below are the scores from the tasting but to learn more, why not come along to a tasting and decide for yourself?
