Kind of silly for them to be making muscat out there, because like everywhere else, muscat is in short supply and must be newly planted or budded over. In contrast, there are plenty of Aussie Cab and Shiraz grapes, as well as other premium grapes, going wanting. Not everything is super-premium quality, of course, but plenty of real quality producers overplanted, and the glut is sucking them dry. Yes, Australia is losing market share, but we haven't really seen that in kosher product. The cheap grapes are the ones already available in surplus, not the ones that may be made available in the future through new or converted plantings.
W just finished the 2012 harvest. If they budded over now, they would have some new variety available for 2014 in light commercial quantity. If we make use of what they have a glut of, it will be available for 2013.
