Issue #46 – on sale from Monday, May 6

Even though this is our seventh annual cellaring edition, it’s the first time we’ve examined the process of creating a home cellar. 

Issue #46 of Halliday magazine

We found three passionate wine collectors who kindly opened their homes to show us their distinctly different cellars. From a flexible space adjoining the kitchen, to a wine room that acts as a functional showroom, and a no-holds-barred underground cellar for thousands of bottles, these spaces provide an inspirational – and voyeuristic – peek into what’s possible.

Continuing our cellaring theme, James Halliday provides his thoughts on the best approach to ageing wine, plus we round up 10 essential rules for storing it, and also investigate the growing issue of wine fraud. Meanwhile, UK-based wine writer Jane Parkinson goes the other way – for anyone who loves young and fresh wines, she shares some brilliant insights into the international styles that are made for immediate drinking. Also on the topic, our deputy editor Casey Warrener revives our old section called For & Against, asking two top winemakers to argue the case for young wines versus aged examples.

We head west in this issue, too, putting the spotlight on some of Perth’s best wine bars, also running through some of the stellar wines and styles that just keep coming out of Margaret River. In addition, David Sly looks at the rise of grenache, winemaker Ben Haines shares what’s next, we follow an enticing wine tour in Chile, and learn that comedian Merrick Watts is a true wine aficionado.
