Australia. Oh, Lucky Country
Just returned from a 10 day visit to the East Coast where I was lucky enough to taste a few wines including two shiraz/syrah. There are only two shiraz on the East Coast? Well, no! In the area I visited there are about 5 wines made from shiraz/syrah grapes and about 80 wineries. Not anywhere on the East Coast that you know? Probably not as I’m talking about the East Coast of the USA, Virginia to be precise. What’s so special about Virginian wine and what has that got to do with Australia being a lucky country? Ever tasted Virginian shiraz/syrah?
