      Halliday March Issue

    They say great wine is made in the vineyard, so this issue that’s where we went.

    Viticulturists and vineyard managers are often the unsung heroes of the winemaking world, so we wanted to share their stories. How do they approach the vines in their care and provide the foundations for truly great wine? Sarah Gamboni meets three people charged with tending some of our best vineyards to hear their insights.

    This issue, we also venture further afield to Italy’s Piemonte where South Australian winemaker Dave Fletcher is preparing to open his new cellar door in a converted old train station. It’s been a long time in the making. UK-based Jane Parkinson gives us 15 syrah wines from beyond Australia that are bound to meet the coming cooler season’s wine criteria. We also take a tour of France’s Languedoc-Roussillon region, which has seen vast wine improvement in recent times, now offering brilliant quality and value.

    Closer to home, we focus on the beguiling wine style of petillant-naturel (pet-nat), Campbell Mattinson provides his take on riesling and James Halliday gives us the rundown on pinot noir in Australia. Also, don’t miss our trip around McLaren Vale to catch up on this stunning South Australian region – producers are going from strength to strength with a diverse collection of incredible wines.

    PLUS… Free this issue is your go-to guide to some of the best cellar door experiences around Australia. Our Halliday Weekender has everything you need to plan your next getaway exploring wineries, sampling great wines, dining on top produce and soaking up vineyard views.
