AUSTRALIAN WINES [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 24 September 1926

AUSTRALIAN WINES . Multitudes of good Australians, that is, those who are by way of taking a "little wine for the stomach's sake," to-day readily accept the vintages of their own country, satisfied that they are at once wholesome and beneficial, and that have a distinguished reputa- tion throughout the Empire. Moreover, the good Australian's sense of patriot- ism is stirred by the knowledge that the colossal sum of £18,000,000 is in- vested in the industry, and, that, with one or two minor exceptions, the in- dustry is entirely Australian. For up- ward of half a century, Lindeman's Wines, for example, have commanded the unstinted appreciation of cultured palates, and, as a consequence, the name, Lindeman, has been indelibly in- scribed In the records of the Australian Wine Industry.
