Let's take a look at Victoria's vineyards and pair some recipes with the wines being made there.
Australia looks like a slightly ill-formed cookie with a single bite taken out of the bottom. On the southeastern side of the bite, the land mass dips down just a few degrees further into the Southern Ocean, creating a slightly lopsided effect. Victoria makes up this southern-most section of Australia's mainland and produces about 15 percent of Australia’s wine. Its boundary to the north is the Murray River; to the south, the Bass Strait separates the mainland from Tasmania. Chardonnay is doing very well in the cool coastal areas of Victoria. The oldest region in Victoria is Yarra Valley, a slice of lush hill country that produces spicy Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
