All change – to Apera, Tawny and Topaque

In a trade agreement between the EU and the Australian government, after 01 September 2011 Australian wine cannot be produced with labeling descriptors such as Port, Sherry, Fino, Amontillado, Manzanilla and Tokay.

The new naming regime is:

  • Apera (Sherry)
  • Tawny (Port)
  • Topaque (Tokay)
