Why Buy Australian Wine Online?
Australia, the Land Down Under, has become a major and exciting force in international wines. Australian wine is taking the world by storm, due to the quality of the grape stock combined with the skill and experience of our winemakers. This enables us to produce a superb and wide range of wine styles. And buying Australian wine online could not be easier.
Most people know of Australian Shiraz – that fruit-forward wine now known and enjoyed around the world. Yet these fabulous complex wines represent but a small part of the overall Australian winemaking scene.
Australia is sometimes described as the perfect wine producing country. It has a land mass as great as the United States or western Europe, with a diverse climate from cold to cool to warm and a wide variety of soil types, including the famous Coonawarra terra rossa. These natural advantages coupled with the irrepressible free-spirited character of the Australian people, has encouraged Australian winemakers to build on the great traditions of winemaking, to create delicious wines of stunning quality, diversity and uniqueness.
Wines from Australia are usually denoted by their grape variety. Aside from Shiraz, Australia also produces fine Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and plenty of Cab-Shiraz blends and some distinct Aussie wines. And don’t forget our Australian sparking whites and reds – just the wines to keep your taste buds tingling.
Delicious concentrated ripe fruit, harvested at the peak of perfection is easier to obtain in Australia than almost anywhere else in the world. Australian wines are a delight on your palette with their different aromas, flavours and taste sensations crafted from each of the different grapes, blends and regions.
The perception that Australia is a hot, flat and desolate place is incorrect. True, we have red deserts in central Australia and there is our famous 'outback'. But it's a country of extremes in climate and landscapes, including mountain ranges with plenty of snow in Winter, tropical islands and rainforests, beautiful beaches and exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.
Australia is also home to two of the seven modern wonders of the world and the world's oldest existing culture. The Sydney Opera House is one of the world's premier performing arts centers and Ayer’s Rock, the monolith now referred to by its official Aboriginal name of Uluru, is known to hundreds of millions of people around the world. At sunrise and sunset it's sandstone composition creates breathtaking color displays.
Our native animals such as the kangaroo and koala and birds like the Kookabura and the world's second largest flightless bird the Emu, are unique to Australia. And our native wildflowers have to be seen to be believed.
