Australian Sparkling Wine
10th January 2015
Australia is home to an amazing array of diverse climates. Many of Australia’s best sparkling wines have been either made in Tasmania or contain substantial components that have been sourced there.
The majority of sparkling wine is made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
Sparkling wine comes in all shapes and sizes – white, red, pink, dry, sweet, light, rich – but it’s the bubbles that differentiates sparkling from other wines.
Vines first arrived in Australia with the First Fleet in 1788.
Australian sparkling wine exports to the UK increased by 43% in the 12 months ending November 2014.
The UK is the largest export market for Australian sparkling wine, accounting for a third of all Australian sparkling wine exports.
