Issue #42 – on sale from Wednesday, September 5

I'm not sure anyone expected a riesling to win Wine of the Year, but our awards this year brought a couple of surprises. 

Issue #42 of Halliday magazine

The winning riesling comes from this issue's cover star, Duke Ranson, and his special site in Porongurup, WA, where he works closely with winemaker Rob Diletti. Turns out he's got a great story to tell too, as do our other award winners, so we loved talking to all six passionate producers for this issue.

Also in this edition, we delve into Australian chardonnay and chat to some of its star winemakers to hear where this variety is headed. And if that inspires you to seek out some examples to try – they're bang-on for spring – we showcase a diverse dozen from around the country.

We also take a trip to New Zealand's stunning Waiheke Island and Costa Brava in Spain, both with many incredible eating and drinking opportunities, as well as investigate the vast Great Southern region of WA. You can also hear from TV chef and long-time wine lover Rick Stein, choose some enticing recipes from Adam Liaw, and learn a little more about sherry, with UK-based wine writer Jane Parkinson selecting 12 standout styles. Plus, don't miss our guide to 100 of the latest and greatest red wines
