Varietal Winners

Riesling

James Halliday by James Halliday
The Clare Valley is well represented, while other South Australia regions such as Mount Gambier and Adelaide Hills also get a look in. Most importantly however, a riesling was awarded the 2019 Halliday Wine Companion’s top honour: Wine of the Year. The winning wine – 2017 Duke’s Vineyard Magpie Hill Reserve – is from Great Southern’s Porongurup subregion and was awarded 99 points.
