Varietal Winners

2017 Best Sparkling

All of these wines have been available at some point (and tasted by Tyson Stelzer or myself) over the past 12 months. I am aware that some practitioners, and some critics, are less convinced than I am about the quality of the Arras wines, but I am unrepentant.

Sparkling red

A tiny group of wines unique to Australia, eagerly sought by those who understand the peculiarities of the style and who, better still, are prepared to cellar them, the longer the better.
