Many people think of big brand wines when they think of Australia as a wine
producer, and indeed she has cornered a very successful market with such brand
wines. There is however another side to Australian wines, and that is of smaller
producers who take a more artisan approach to vine growing and wine making.
An UK wine writer observes, when commenting on New Zealand pinot noir that,
while "comparisons with burgundy are inevitable; New Zealand pinot noir is rapidly
developing its own distinctive style, often with deeper colour, purer fruit and higher
alcohol. While regional differences are apparent, the best wines do have burgundy's
elusive complexity, texture and "pinosity" and are capable of ageing".
South Africa is one of the world's most exciting wine-producing regions today, with
enormous potential for high-quality wines and is often characterised as "new world
ripeness meets old world finesse".
