Australia, 1997

1997 was an erratic Australian vintage. Yields were generally down due to low budding and erratic conditions, and in South Australia and Victoria a heat wave shut down the ripening process temporarily, as vines closed down to survive, while Western Australia escaped the heat wave of the eastern states. A cooler end of the summer saved the day for some appellations, which produced some wonderfully concentrated, complex reds. A very good year for Cabernet Sauvignon by and large.
