South Australian Reds from EuroVintage

Although Australian wines have experienced a decline in recent years due to the low yield vintages of late and the oversupply previous to that, the retention of quality and value make them some of the best bargains on the New Zealand market. As a distributor, it would be short-sighted to abandon a strong range of Australian reds, as the wines will always be regarded as classic and unique styles, and with the move to greater elegance, a return to popularity is certain to occur. EuroVintage maintains a very deep range, and here, I review a selection, nearly all of which come from the excellent 2012 vintage.
