The average consumption of wine in Australia is more than other countries like United States, United Kingdom and New Zealand. A recent study has concluded that on an average 4 week period, 55% of Australians who are eligible for drinking have drunk an average of 21 glasses of wine, which is more than New Zealand, UK and USA where on an average of 4 week period, only 30% of people have drunk around 10 glasses of wine.

Most of the Australian wine-makers mention about the contents and origin clearly on the labels (on the front and back) and other details about the wine. Some of them also suggest about the best foods for complimenting the wine with or the other way around. Red wines get their sparkling deep red color due to the process in which the grapes are crushed along with their seeds and skins. This process allows pigmentation color red to enter in to the juice. White wines, on the other hand, are made with separated skins after crushing them. The quality and superiority of the wine is attributed to the quality of grapes used in making them. A popular wine “Shiraz” is named after its grape variety and is famous for its rich ripe plum and pepper flavors. The color of the wine is deep crimson which is due to the color of the grape variety used in making it. Other popular red wines like Merlot have a softer rose petal like flavor and Grearche has a highly perfumed and soft taste.
