Halliday's Top 100 class for 2020

James Halliday has released his top 100 wine selections for 2020.

So here's some fun facts that highlight how tough the comp is: 

1055 wines we submitted

603 of these we red wines

Of that Shiraz and blends had 215 wines submitted


2018 Chalk Hill Clarendon Syrah and 2019 Alpha Crucis Old Vine Grenache we're selected in James Halliday's Top 100 wines of 2020. Our mission is for our wines to reflect a sense of place and these two drops go above and beyond that.

2018 Chalk Hill Clarendon Syrah - a fine example of temperate-grown Shiraz. The bouquet pulsates with black cherry, spice, licorice and pepper, the palate opening with a fanfare of dark fruits and finishes with fine-grained tannins. The drinking window is open, and won’t close for decades.

2019 Alpha Crucis Old Vine Grenache - brilliant crimson hue: an intensely perfumed bouquet floats into the juicy palate of pomegranate, red cherry and spice. A gorgeous Grenache. Superlative length.
