An affair to remember
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. When Sir Isaac Newton devised his third law, he probably wasn’t thinking of Australian wine but he could have been. After the world’s most enthusiastic wine importers fell rapturously in love with the well-made, user-friendly wines of Australia, those who made them can hardly have foreseen that they would fall just as resoundingly and as rapidly out of love with them. Australian offerings have endured a roller-coaster relationship with overseas drinkers. Now the scent of romance is back in the air, writes London-based Jancis Robinson in The Age.
