Australia produces wines of a quality that can hold their own with any and the continuing development of new vineyard areas and experiments with different grape varieties make it an exciting country from the wine lover's point of view. This book traces the evolution of wine making in Australia from its origins, giving an up-to-date picture of all the wine-growing districts, and showing how European traditions and skills have been modified to suit different conditions of climate and soil. For this particular book the author has revised the text to reflect both the wine-making process and the financial turbulence that have altered the industry in the last five years. A note on the many winery and locality names, that are drawn from Australian Aboriginal languages, are also included.
