May is Aussie Wine Month. And to celebrate, the latest edition of the Dan Murphy’s Buyer’s Guide is all about Australia’s local winemaking heroes – and the stories that make them special.
Take the fantastic tale of Taylors wine. The winery was founded in 1969, when Bill Taylor Snr and his sons bought a patch of land in the Clare Valley. Four years – and a whole lot of hard work – later, their first vintage won the prestigious Montgomery Trophy for best red wine at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show. Today, Taylors is still family owned and still making some of the Clare Valley’s best reds.
Their Local Heroes story is just one you’ll find in The Guide, each one showcasing the passion our nation’s producers have for creating world-class wines that speak to Australia’s unique conditions.
And after you’ve toasted your local heroes, discover the top ten drinks trends that will get you in the know before everyone else. It doesn’t matter what your tastes are – The Guide’s got something new for everyone. Wine lovers will adore our look at the Australian winemakers who are experimenting with exotic grape varieties like vermentino and sangiovese. Beer fanatics can take a peek into the urban craft breweries that are popping up in the middle of bustling cities. And if you’re a spirit lover, we’ll show you how to mix up the cocktails that are being served in the hottest bars across Australia.
But that’s just the beginning. The Guide’s also got features on Tasmanian sparkling, cool-climate reds, Coonawarra cabernet, the best shiraz for winter, and a selection of the hottest new products to hit our range.
