Australian Wines


Australia: far away, very hot, and with an overvalued commodity currency. The distance, the issue that too many reds taste slightly roasted or stewed, and the high prices being asked for the country’s many splendid reds mean that SVS is not, at least for the moment, going to offer a wide range. We like to concentrate on the country’s great strength, Shiraz.
