High density planting is one of the approaches taken by Bass Phillip to prove that Australia can produce a jaw-dropping Pinot that is comparable with the best from the Pinot Monarch – Burgundy, France. Yes, I wish to receive exclusive discounts, special offers and competitions from our partners. In any case, high-end wine connoisseurs will have little say in whether vintners adopt new techniques for keeping their trade afloat, if they want to continue drinking wine at all. “I think climate change, and increased concerns about fungicide use, will force an acceptance of new varieties,” Walker says. The fight to keep the wine flowing will likely never end.
Liquor is available in selected ALDI stores in NSW, VIC, ACT and WA. Due to liquor licensing limitations, liquor is not sold in any QLD or SA ALDI stores.

Both offer a foretaste of the vast vineyards of Provence and Languedoc, regions from which we also source from. Home to many of the greatest Cabernet and Merlot based French wine in the world, as well as the finest sweet whites in the form of Sauternes. The Bordeaux French wine trade today involves many groups, and within each there are also vast differences of scale and quality. We aim primarily to seek out the “little big ones”, those producers who are over delivering and offering wines of great typicity and value.

Nicks Wine Merchants continue to ship wines across Australia from Europe and in particular France, as we have done for many decades. It’s always a pleasure to discover something new in the world of wine, as it is to renew many of our old acquaintances with Chateau owners and negociants. Our objective is to find value for money wines with flavour profiles that are not easily found in Australia. We endeavour to deal directly whenever possible, cutting out the wholesalers, meaning our direct imports frequently offer outrageous value for money. We have a bit of a thing for wine at Queen St Eatery; our list boasts unique selections of fun, contemporary Australian wine as well as beautiful French varieties. There’s something here for all palettes, with plenty available by the glass. We’re a relaxed and approachable French inspired restaurant and wine bar.

American vintners, just like the French, dithered in a state of denial for decades, resulting in phylloxera’s spread throughout the state by 1900. Eventually, California’s wine industry adopted the well-honed tactics of the French to stave off the bugs, often using vinifera grafts on top of American rootstocks. Eventually, methodical experimentation in southern France produced both types of genetic cures for phylloxera. Hybrids and grafted vines soon achieved a true la réconstitution, and the rest is history; and France’s early experience with phylloxera provided many of the solutions that would later be used in other wine-making countries.

Sometimes, communities of vintners would vote on whether to use carbon disulfide in an entire district, forcing even the vineyards of dissenters to be doused with the substance. By 1874, experts had finally come to a grudging consensus that phylloxera was the cause of the wine blight. But if American bugs were destroying French vines, then the French decided they would defend their local vines at all costs.
