Emerging Varietal Wines of Australia will cover about a thousand wineries who are producing wine from about 100 different 'alternative' grape varieties. The aim of the book is to provide a guide for the growing number of wine consumers who are looking for information about innovative wines.
As part of the project I have turned up some interesting new wines, including one without a name.
Rimfire Winery in Queensland are producing wine from a block of old vines which are defying all attempts to identify the variety. So they've called the wine 1893 after the year the block was planted.
