    Which wines will excite you the most this year? What drinks will become your new favourites?

    For the first edition of the new year, we did some crystal-ball gazing to determine the top drink predictions for the next 12 months. Even if you're a creature of habit when it comes to wine and tend to shun the trends, a dynamic scene lies ahead. Wine quality is constantly improving across the country, producers are making styles their own, regionality is shining through, and us wine lovers have more quality options to choose from than ever before. Our 2018 hit list leaves no doubt we're in for another year of great drinking. 

    Also in this issue, Dave Brookes examines the whole-bunch winemaking process, James Halliday gets excited about grenache, and David Sly looks at the rise of Mediterranean-style wines. Plus, we meet Margaret River winemaker Josephine Perry, and also match wines to some jaw-stretching burgers with a clean, green twist. 

    For anyone keen to plan a break this year, we take a trip to the New South Wales' Hilltops as well as Heathcote in Victoria, and head further afield to Scotland's famed Speyside region. In each case, we talk to some of the best producers and outline some highlights to inspire a little wanderlust. 

    For those of you feeling strapped after the holidays, we've also included a handy guide to almost 80 wines priced $30 or less to help kick off your new year of sensational drinking.
