HOW WE JUDGE WINESTATE MAGAZINE TASTING CRITERIA OUR STAR RATING SYSTEM • Our tastings and published ratings are designed with one thing in mind: to provide a useful and genuine balanced guide on wines to our readers. In order to achieve this we follow certain procedures in an activity that is notoriously difficult! There are regular criticisms of wine shows and various scoring systems; here is how we approach our tastings.

WHAT’S IT WORTH? • Prices listed are exceptional auction highs and do not include buyer’s premium.

NORTH-EAST VICTORIA

SOUTHERN VICTORIA

WINES OF VICTORIA • With Victoria in lock-down because of Covid we wanted to still put forward the fine products of the state, so came up with this tasting, held in Adelaide with judges who had either worked at Victorian wineries or judged in their shows. We urge you to support any of these wines recommended in this tasting!

BAROSSA VALLEY & EDEN VALLEY

BAROSSA VALLEY & EDEN VALLEY • One of Australia's finest dual regions, wines from here rarely disappoint. Generally known for its big flavour profiles, lately as well as the big blockbusters, more refined wines are being produced to cater to the younger market. Always a champion region for shiraz and riesling, don't overlook fantastic grenache wines from here along with emerging red varietals.

CHARDONNAY & BLENDS • This was a great opportunity to look at a big range of chardonnay wines across numerous price points. With this varietal that can be moulded and crafted with good winemaking from good fruit, price is often a guide.
