Discover the grape variety: Canari
The Canary is rarely found in today's vineyards. Its origins are probably in the Pyrenees, precisely in the Ariège. Its repertoire of alternative appellations is vast. Boudalès from the Cévennes becomes folle noire in Fronton. It is also known as chalosse noire, ugne noire or canaril, and can be recognized by its early buds. The very productive vine shows remarkable vigour. Even the black rot does not get the better of this variety. The shoots are covered with foliage, the most exposed parts of which turn red in the autumn. When the grapes reach maturity, which occurs in the second late season, the Canari displays compact, section-shaped bunches of small to medium size. The fins are sometimes very crowded, gathering berries with characteristic colors. The bluish-black shell protects a very juicy flesh. A rather lightly coloured and ordinary wine emerges from the vinification of this variety.

Located in the Southeastern corner of the continent, with a generally cool, ocean-influenced Climate, Victorian wine is remarkably diverse, producing all sorts of wines and styles in different climates. In all, the state covers almost 250,000 square kilometres (over 90,000 square miles) of land (almost the same Size as the US state of Texas), well under a quarter the size of its western neighbour, South Australia, and less than a third the size of New South Wales to the North. As such, Victoria's size - and to some extent, the state's viticultural history - can defy generalization.
