Australia, 2014

Western Australia stole the show, with brilliant conditions in 2014, while in the east a cool, wet spring with late frost was far from the perfect start. A heat-wave followed, which went some good way to compensate, although bushfire smoke hindered quality in some vineyards.

South Australia and the Barossa saw low yields and a late harvest, with the weather commanding the style of the vintage – lovely, fragrant, aromatic reds (Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon) with moderate tannin levels.
