A New style of Australian Wine
The Aussies are coming up with a surprise: Elegant Pinots, Shiraz
and Chards. Green Point from Yarra Valley, Victoria has been
turning out some magnificent premium style wines.
Loire Valley Wines::
The diversity of "terroirs," climates and grapes is staggering,
and the styles of wine change accordingly. One common trait is
their refreshing acidity, and no matter how magnificent, they
are food-friendly wines meant to be enjoyed young.

From California, Rutherford Hills, and Australia to Chile and

Gew�rztraminers from Trentino-Alto Adige

immortalized by British mystery writer Agatha Christie.
