Since the Rare Ozzies book was published in late 2019 several producers of these varieties have come to my attention. They are listed below. If you know of more producers of these varieties please let me know
An amazing Spanish variety now making its mark in Australia. In the Rare Ozzies book there are seven producers mentioned, along with comments fro Ash Radcliff of Ricca Terra, Val Bassham of Bassham wines Lynn Rathgen of Whistling Eagle and Natasha Killeen of Stanton and Killeen.
Latest producer is Linnaea Vineyards of Heathcote. That's their label above.
Norton is widely regarded as the best of the American vine species to produce a wine which tastes most like wine made from V.vinifera. In fact many tasters cannot distinguish Norton from wines made with European varieties.
It is rare in Australia. The only producer is Bago Vineyards in the Hastings River region of NSW.
