Aussie Wine in the US

Original post by Stephen Harvey, Feb 7, 2017.

I am hoping to get some input on what Aussie wine the Snooth Community is seeing on the shelves [either retail or restaurants] in your local areas.

US wine in Australia is still very much limited to the bigger wine companies eg

Argyle Pinot Noir

Stags Leap

Berringer

Etude

Occasionly the big guns from Napa will appear on the Auction Sites.

I am always happy to give any recommendations if you are looking for an Aussie experience

Now I am back doing some posting I will keep my eye out for US wines over here and see if any you think are worth me having a look at.

Stephen hasn't shown here in awhile, but would be curious about his perspective on these bottles:

 

Stocked with the finest classics or the newest of new wave, a full cellar is a happy cellar. 
Great Southern Land- Australian Classics from a Trio of Cellars

Despite having fallen out of fashion, Australia has more to offer the discerning drinker than overblown pointy wines and industrial plonk featuring a marsupial on the label. First, there’s terroir, from the cooler maritime climate areas like Grampians to the drier, more continental conditions of the Barossa and Clare Valley. Second, there are truly venerable, dry-farmed vines, many dating from the 19th Century. Third, there’s a serious commercial vine-growing tradition that dates to the 1820s. And finally, there’s value: relative to other benchmarks, older Australian wine (with a few exceptions) remains affordable. Today we’re pleased to offer an assortment of aged Aussies ranging from crystalline dry Rieslings, to strapping Barossa Shiraz, to classic honeyed Rutherglen Stickies. Happy hunting! *Please note wines are in the warehouse and will be available Wednesday, 2/21.*

Yeah so would I.  I'd also like to have a cellar loaded like the picture.

Lots of sweets. Too bad.

Was at a tasting of Australian wines a week ago and there were some pretty spectacular wines there. Even a great Pinot Noir.

Who knew?

Lots of good stuff being made and interesting grapes and techniques.

I'm really enjoying the 2015 vintage in OZ.  Some really interesting and very good wines coming out.

Good man, Paul.

I'll bet that I've marked 50 or 60 posts as Spam, this weekend.  Then you find 9 pages (or whatever it was) before I even logged on, today.  Then I marked another 7 or 8 of them to get down to here.
