Issue #59 – on sale from Thursday, July 8
Notes from the editor:
How many great new red wines do you need to know about? The answer is 70 – and they're all in this issue.
It's all too easy to turn to our same favourite wines time and time again, but in this edition, we're all about mixing things up and trying something new.
Enter all seven members of the Halliday Wine Companion tasting team, who have each chosen 10 standout wines they believe are worth a closer look. They also share their thoughts on what constitutes a great wine because it's not always about the highest-scoring trophy contenders. There are wines that tick all the boxes and simply bring joy when they're shared with family and friends. Whether you love big and bold reds, lighter and fresher styles, or something in between, they're all in here and waiting to be explored.
Continuing the theme, the team also tells us what they think are Australia's most exciting red wines right now, and wine writer David Sly looks at the classic cabernet shiraz blend, which continues to shine. f that's too much red wine for you, our mini-mag inside this issue is packed full of stellar whites, offering even more options to switch up your usual selections.
Also inside, London-based wine authority Jane Parkinson rounds up 12 South African wines that she's loved in recent times; Jane Faulkner takes us on a tour of Victoria's Yarra Valley, where she's inspired by producers old and new; and we ask two top sommeliers for their best ideas for pairing wine with food.
We also had a phone chat with actress Sarah Jessica Parker about her collaborative wine range with New Zealand's Invivo, and asked sommelier Dom Robinson about his epiphany wines that have led him to the top wine job at Melbourne's Attica.
