Authentication of wine is important as it gives an advantage in promoting the reputation of a brand and also protecting the integrity of it against fraud due to adulteration. It is essential to focus on what markers need to be identified when developing methods for authentication. My project aims to understand the unique characters that are inherent in Australian wine regions producing varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz to ensure the provenance of wine claimed to be from a particular Australian region.
