First Poll Closed
The first poll is now closed and it is rather interesting, although the numbers are small. Probably surprisingly Pinot Noir won, just ahead of Barossa Shiraz. This is probably a reaction to two things: one, overly big and ripe Australian (Parker) wines, two, the vastly improved quality of Pinot lately. Barossa Shiraz still does well. It is Australia's unique contribution to the world of fine wine after all (apart from Hunter's Semillon, which people talk about, but don't drink much).
