Australian vineyardThere was a time when no self respecting connoisseur would go near an Australian wine. Yet this tradition of European snobbery has waned in recent years as Australia flexed its viticultural muscle and displayed to the world the strength of the wine it has to offer.

At the Drinks Cabinet we’ve got a great selection of some of the best Australian wine online. Whether it’s a famous vintage like Penfolds Grange, or the freshest offerings from the Yarra orHunter valleys, there’s a wealth of good wine available from this massive wine grower.

That’s not to say that the journey has been easy. Although the British brought vines with them when they settled in Australia it was left to other groups – like the Germans in the Barossa Valley for example – to make the most of Australian wine’s potential. For much of the 20th century Australian wine was stuck in the doldrums of churning out sweet fortified wine and it wasn’t until the 1970s that it truly came of age (to such an extent that in 2000 it managed to export more wine than France to the UK).
When it comes to grapes the major players in Australian wine are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. In terms of whites Chardonnay remains by far the most dominant variety and Australia has succeeded in setting the benchmark for this wine globally.
