REGULARS

Savoury to Sparkling

Two contrasting styles of wine showcase the unique character of their makers: elegant, avant-garde and experimental.

Bio Revolution

While he might have started out as an unintentional environmentalist, distiller Peter Bignell is leaving others in his eco-friendly wake.

Smoke Signal

Everyone agrees Australia has experienced a hellish summer, but debate rages over the extent of smoke taint on the 2020 vintage. The proof will be in the tasting.

Tempranillo

Nothing says Spanish red wine better than tempranillo, but the flexible variety is also finding a home in a number of Australian regions, where our hot dry climate is testing its tenacity.

Viking Invasion

The wild heirloom Norwegian yeast brought back from the edge has brewers here in a fizz over its fast turnaround.

Zero Per Cent

For those wanting a quality drink but without the alcohol, distillers are crafting options that are full of flavour. Say goodbye to that lemon, lime and bitters.

Café Paci

As soon as its doors opened, Café Paci staked a claim as one of Australia’s best, where minimal intervention is the name of the game when it comes to the wine list.

Lucky in Red

You wouldn’t expect a fifth-generation Austrian winemaker to find themselves in China’s Ningxia wine region, but Lenz Moser was presented with an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Going Global

From supermarket shelves to La Place de Bordeaux, wines from Chile and Argentina continue to make their mark on the world.

Tempt Not

A friendly reminder that Gwyneth Paltrow can’t hold a candle to our aromatics.

Sommelier’s Choice - Adrian Filiuta MS

“Ultimately, my work resonates with my passion for travel, meeting people and experiencing new cultures,” says Merivale Group Sommelier Adrian Filiuta MS.
