Variety Valley

A term commonly used in the USA and Australia (also called Varietal Wine) for a type of wine that is mainly made from one grape variety. Such a product, which is called a varietal wine in the German-speaking world or Vin de cépage in France, usually has to contain at least 75% of the specified variety overseas. In contrast to the Varietals, the second group in the New World are the Generics (generic wines) which are named after a place or region. See also under Fighting Varietals.
