exciting new wineries sneaking in as Halliday's picks.
Congratulations to wineries like Cullen, House of Arras, Grosset,
Bass Phillip, Clonakilla, Yarra Yering, Leeuwin, all of whom won
top awards for their flagships. However, it was great seeing
newcomers like Thomas Wines and SC Pannell recognised for wines

Wine of the Week
Best Cabernet Blend - 98 Points!
Wine Companion 2015
Vanya Cullen describes the 2012 Diana
Madeline as “possibly a once-in-a-lifetime
wine.” This release marks a string of
outstanding releases, demonstrating that
Cullen is in top form as Diana Madeline
holds its place as one of Australia's
benchmark wines. Scoring a whopping 98 and
winning the Best Cabernet Blend wine
category in Halliday's new guide cements the
Halliday 98 Points! Gary Walsh 97 Points!
Tyson Stelzer 97 Points!
Ralph Kyte-Powell 95 Points!
Floral perfume, regional seaweed, aniseed
and bay leaf, mixed berries – red, black and
blue – backed with beautiful mocha and cedar
oak. Medium bodied, super fine dense
‘graphite’ tannin – to the tooth –
freshness, fruit weight, flavour, elegance
and length. All here. Not a hair out of
place, and yet, has character and charisma.
Vivacious. Not trying too hard." -
