Meet the Decanter experts

Uncorked • A snapshot of what’s happening in the world of wine

ORGANIC VINEYARD AREA INCREASES GLOBALLY

IN BRIEF • Stay up to date with the latest wine news on decanter.com, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter @Decanter

A drink with… Vanya Cullen • Fifty years ago, Margaret River pioneers Kevin and Di Cullen planted Cullen vineyard in Wilyabrup. Daughter Vanya Cullen became chief winemaker in 1989 and has ensured that quality, integrity, sustainability still underpins everything they do. Cullen Wines was certified organic in 2003 and biodynamic in 2004, was Australia’s first winery to be certified carbon neutral in 2007, and has been carbon positive since 2019

Rethinking your drinking • Winemaking has an impact on the environment – that’s inarguable. Efforts to lessen that impact have begun across the industry, but what can the concerned consumer do?

10 PRACTICAL WAYS YOU CAN HELP

Zero waste, zero packaging, zero emissions

Cornas to drink now: my top 20 • Chunky, spicy, deep, earthy, brooding, sulky, glorious… One of the great joys of Cornas is that you never know quite what you’re going to get. But if you time it right, Cornas can really hit the mark

Champagne rips up the rule book • NV and MV – only one letter different, but in the Champagne world the two signify daringly different conceptions of what a ‘house blend’ can or should be. Is it just a premium-end fad, or could non-vintage be about to change forever?

Torbreck • It’s not even three decades old, yet this Barossa estate is making some of Australia’s most collectible wines. Its rapid rise to success is down to the pedigree of its vineyards and an uncompromising approach to picking dates, as its chief winemaker Ian Hongell reveals

Barolo 2017 & Barbaresco 2018 • Two vintages beset with a range of climatic challenges, but the resulting wines have exceeded expectations. Follow our expert’s guidance and explore his pick of 40 top buys, including Riserva wines from Barolo 2015 and Barbaresco 2016

The finest Ports for all seasons • If ever there were a winter season to explore and indulge in the heady satisfactions of the Douro Valley’s fortified delights, then surely it is the end of this year and into 2022…

REBULA/RIBOLLA GIALLA The rebel story continues • The Brda Home of Rebula Wine Experience, now in its fourth year, is aimed at building a global reputation for a local grape

Distilled • Your guide to the latest trends in spirits and cocktails

WHAT TO DRINK NOW… Whiskey Sour

FIVE OF THE BEST: SUSTAINABLE SPIRITS

Essence of place • A dedication to consistency in their signature blends hasn’t always allowed Cognac houses to put any focus on provenance. But priorities shift, and some producers are increasingly looking to take things back to the vineyard

Cognacs with a sense of place: eight to try

White onion tarte tatin with mustard seeds • A delectable combination of creamy texture, mustard heat and the sweetness of the onions makes for a challenging match – but it can be met with wines of equally strong character and dimension

When in Rome • The...
