Fine Aussie wines applauded in 100 Best list


This year’s 100 Best Australian Wines includes 12 producers who have been included in every single list since its inception in 2004.

The 12 producers are De Bortoli, Fox Gordon, Jacob’s Creek, McWilliam’s, Mitolo, Penfolds, Peter Lehmann, St Hallett, The Lane Vineyard, Tyrrell’s, Wirra Wirra and Yalumba.

Written by Matthew Jukes, the list represents the finest one hundred Australian wines available on the shelves in the UK this year.

Jukes said: “It is fascinating to see that boutique operators rub shoulders with giants and while large portfolios like Penfolds have notched up a massive 29 wines over the years, with De Bortoli (24), Yalumba (23) and Peter Lehmann (21) there are also a few notable names like Jim Barry (13), Tim Adams (13), Petaluma (12) and Tamar Ridge (10) who have missed out on two years’ of lists and so narrowly miss receiving the Hall of Fame accolade, but still have performed at a massive run rate more recently.”

This year 23 estates have gained Hall of Fame status and their portfolios of wines, along with this year’s 100 Best, will be used in Jukes’ continued push to celebrate and educate the world about fine Australian wine.
