Issue: June 30, 2011

The Australian reds and whites in this group come diverse Aussie regions. The hot Barossa Valley is home to Shiraz, but not far away, in the Eden Valley, it's cool enough to grow Riesling. It's also safe to say New Zealand can still hang its shingle on Sauvignon Blanc. Yet it's Pinot Noir that has been garnering attention of late. Well, if there's a true California wine, it has to be Zinfandel. Zinfandel always comes with a big smile and a bear hug. And, interesting wines are being made from a range of grapes in diverse regions around the world. Wine Spectator's Bruce Sanderson brings you wines from all these regions.
