In general, warmer and sunnier
climates produce riper flavours and
more robust textures. (If it’s too hot, the
wine’s structure will suffer.) California,
Australia and South America are
packed with warm vineyard sites, while
some Niagara vineyards can produce
this style in particularly warm vintages
such as 2007, 2010 and 2012.
