PROSECCO TAKES ON A ROSEY GLOW

CHARDONNAY ROOTS DISCOVERED

AMONG THE VINES - WINE STAYS CLOSE TO HOME

A YEAR OF HEAT, DROUGHT AND FIRE

NEW WINE PRODUCER MAKES AN IMPACT • Mapleton Vineyards might be a relative newcomer to the Tasmanian wine industry but after recently raking in awards it seems they’re set to soar.

NOT ONE TO MINCE WINE OR WORDS

GAPSTED: A QUARTER OF A CENTURY ON • As Gapsted Wines hit their silver anniversary, they reflect on where they’ve been and share a taste of what’s to come.

Risk Reaps Rewards

JOURNEY FROM THE OLD COUNTRY TO THE NEW • Pioneers of the Orange wine region in New South Wales, Highland Heritage Estate proves that winemaking is in their blood.

WINE OF THE YEAR Special Awards Feature 2020 • Featuring the winners and placegetters for each varietal category tasted throughout the year. Plus profiles of the Australian and New Zealand winemaker and wine company of the year.

HITTING THE RIGHT NOTES • THE FINE ART OF BLENDING

WINNING FAMILY RECIPE • Today, Saint Clair wines are sold in over 60 countries, throughout Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and the Pacific. As part of the company’s steady expansion, in 2016 it purchased Lake Chalice, acquiring over 50 hectares of vineyards at Rapaura and in the Waihopai Valley.

WHEN YOU’RE ON A GOOD THING… • “The primary focus of everything we do at Church Road is around ‘mouthfeel’, getting a nice fullness, roundness and plushness. A lot of the things you do to enhance texture actually make the wines less fruity and more aromatically interesting, which to me is a real positive, but it’s not everyone’s focus.”

A STELLAR SUCCESS STORY • “Having been awarded this prestigious title is a vindication of our commitment to innovative winemaking that builds on tradition; not bound by it but seeking to build on the generations of history and heritage that have built our company.”

TRIPLE THREAT • “Being trained as a chef he sees flavours to such a depth he can make sure he captures the absolute quality of every grape.”
