WINES OF NSW

WINES OF NEW SOUTH WALES • Our first state performs well again across multiple varieties and multiple regions, from cool climate to warm climate. Not surprisingly the standout class was the semillon class which Australia is making its own. The other was shiraz which performed well across multiple vintages, a great credit to the viticulturalists and winemakers.

BAROSSA VALLEY & EDEN VALLEY

BAROSSA VALLEY & EDEN VALLEY • A very nice judging of wines from arguably Australia’s best known wine region. As expected here we saw lots of flavoursome, richly styled wines, but interestingly also a move towards mid-weight more elegant styles. However, our view is “don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”. When you have the flavour that others dream of why would you tamper with it? Go with your strengths!

HOW WE JUDGE • WINESTATE MAGAZINE TASTING CRITERIA OUR STAR RATING SYSTEM

CHARDONNAY & BLENDS • This is the clay moulding variety where winemaker’s skill comes to the fore. Of course you need the quality fruit to start with but of all the other varieties chardonnay is mere putty in the hands of a great winemaker. Check these out!
