Matt Kramer Speaks…

“There are really only two kinds of wines in the world, wines that taste like they come from somewhere, and wines that taste as if they could come from anywhere. Australia, to both its benefit and its detriment, has become the world’s master of wines that taste like they could come from anywhere.”

“From a fine wine perspective, and I emphasis that phrase ‘fine wine’, Australia’s mega-wineries are the enemies of Australia’s hundreds of, what I call, ‘fine wine ambition’ producers.”

“The biggest difference between Australia and California is that in California it’s the high-end little guys who are setting the pace and the big boys try to copy them as best they can.”
