Australia, 1995

1995 was a challenging vintage in the vineyards in South and Southeast Australia, which were hit by spring frosts and drought respectively, and the summer was dry, but not especially warm. Quantity was down in the Barossa and Clare Valley, but quality was very good in early-ripening varieties like Shiraz, while the later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon struggled to ripen.

Meanwhile, Western Australia had a dry, hot summer producing grapes of perfect ripeness, and both Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon performed very well.
