They scare every French winemaker because the quality that goes into a $10 bottle of Australian wine is exactly the same quality that goes into the top of their line.
他们把全法国的葡萄酒生产商都吓坏了,因为一瓶十美元的澳大利亚葡萄酒品质与法国最好的产品不相上下。

Partly it's been spurred by domestic growth: though historically not big wine consumers, Australians now drink an average of 26 bottles of table wine a year more than any other English-speaking nation, although less than a third of the average Frenchman's needs.
