US market primed for Australian premium wines as economy rebounds

With signs the US economy is picking up, a leading international wine judge believes now is the time for Australian premium winemakers to renew efforts in selling across the Pacific.

Rieslings from the US, Germany, New Zealand, France and South Africa — and for the first time the Czech Republic — are up against the Australian product at this week's International Riesling Challenge in Canberra.

A member of the judging team is International Riesling Foundation president Jim Tresize, from New York.

He argues Americans are increasingly looking to wine that complements an increasing interest in food that is lighter and healthier.
