Yangarra's goes even higher: Four outstanding super premium releases

What I really like, more than anything, about Yangarra is that it’s a winery built around a great vineyard. That’s somewhat unusual in the world of Australian wine, where typically labels come first, vines later (when someone can afford to buy land). An…

I could almost phone in the review for this St Hugo 2015 duo. Oaky reds with warm alcohol, no shortage of (added) acidity and plenty of tannins. Job done, let’s go to the pub (and drink IPA). But I want to know is whether you covet wines like this duo.…

Michael Hall's expressive 2016 releases hit the spot

It seems like a big jump to go from jewellery valuer to Barossa winemaker. But that’s the route Michael Hall’s life has followed. From a childhood in the UK to the ‘rarefied air’ of record breaking gemstones at Sothebys in Switzerland and then back to…
