ABSTRACT
The article presents information on how wine regions in south-eastern Australia suffered due to drought, frost and bush fire in the recent past. The winter preceding the 2007 vintage season was the driest in Victoria on record, making conditions perfect for spring frosts, which resulted in the icy ground crackling beneath vignerons' feet. Then came the bush fires--early, long before Christmas, and then again in January. All these events have hit the vineyards in the region hard.
