Issue #56 – on sale from Thursday, January 14
Notes from the editor:
Are you into resolutions? Neither are we – except when it comes to wine and drinking better.
That’s why we’re kick-starting this new year with 10 ideas to help you uncover some deliciously different new wines. Better yet, almost all the suggestions come with the added bonus of giving back in some way. And that’s not just about rationalising our buying habits (although it helps). From planning a cellar door road trip to choosing wines with a conscience, there’s a stack of ideas in here to help you broaden your wine horizons this year.
Also in this issue, we look at the growing number of wineries acknowledging the traditional Indigenous owners of their sites on their products, and hear some varying opinions about this approach from across the industry. We also check in on that perennial summer favourite, rosé, and head to the Barossa Valley to see how the region’s producers are taking an ever-closer focus on their vineyards and individual blocks, and naming them on their labels.
In addition, James Halliday discusses Tasmania’s rapidly evolving wine industry and UK wine authority Jane Parkinson explores some cooler regions around the world, pointing to some leftfield standouts in the process. We also meet the duo behind Margaret River’s Si Vintners, Halliday Wine Companion chief editor Tyson Stelzer discusses the hot topic of wine scores, and we ask the tasting team for their most exciting wine recommendations for the season.
After all the events of last year, we’re excited to start a brand new one, so we hope this edition provides plenty of inspiration to help you start your 2021 in the best possible way.
