Run, Don’t Walk

These seven serious offerings from up-and-coming local producers will convince you to leave home once more.

After The Fires

Forty years of work vanished during the horrific fires that swept through the Adelaide Hills, but the Henschkes are determined to rebuild.

Floral Tribute

Nic Peterkin is rethinking rosé and experimenting with the yeast from indigenous flowers. The proof is in the tasting.

Cabernet Franc

Give a wine its dues. While most of us are familiar with this black grape from its supporting role in blends, a few Aussie producers are letting it steal the show.

Lust for Life

Leave it to craft brewers to draw inspiration from the coronavirus – and no, we’re not talking Mexican beer.

Revolutionary Spirit

The history of whiskey remained largely unchanged for hundreds of years, but fortune is favouring those distillers who are keen to experiment.

Imports to Watch

Angus Hughson takes you through imports from Southern Rhône, Argentina and Northern Italy.

Room To Zoom

As luck would have it, wine is tailor-made for a lockdown.

Sommelier’s Choice

Food and wine has always been a huge part of Alex Marchetti’s life. With his father a chef and mother working in front of house he grew up with a love for food and wine, which he now shares with others in his career as a sommelier.

2020 Vintage Report

Read the latest Vintage Reports from Victoria, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Northern Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.

Young Gun of Wine Awards 2020

Not even a pandemic was enough to cancel this year’s Young Gun of Wine (YGOW) Awards ceremony. One of the most anticipated events on the Australian wine industry calendar each year, YGOW – now in its 14th year – celebrates the best of the country’s up-and-coming winemakers.

Vale Vaughn

The GT WINE team was devastated to hear news of the passing of one of the Australian wine industry’s brightest young stars back in May, Vaughn Dell of Sinapius in Pipers Brook, northern Tasmania.

Henschke Highlight

The 58th vintage of Australia’s most renowned single vineyard wine – Henschke Hill of Grace (A$865) – was released in early May.

A Milestone For Best's Great Western

Best’s Great Western is a name deeply ingrained in the Victorian wine industry with their rich viticultural heritage. But 2020 is a special year for Best’s as it marks 100 years since the Thomson family took custodianship of the winery.
