The Prosecco of the Year
This is a fresh, crunchy, lively prosecco with just a touch of sweetness – hoorah! It’s built around the varietal markers of nashi pear, lemon and a spicy edge reminiscent of rocket. It’s about as well-crafted and delicious as prosecco can be. And refreshingly dry. King Valley, look out!

Best Regional Oil
JOSEPH Cold Pressed – A fantastic oil. Lovely clean fresh nose of ripe tomato, apple, sweet citrus and grass. Great transfer of aromas to palate all in balance with added fresh nut and spice characters. Light yet creamy mouthfeel. Good balanced bitterness and textured pungency with a lingering length. Delicious.
The Real Review
#1 of 44 Prosecco in Australia
Palest yellow colour, bright and fresh. Bath salts, white pears, lemon curd and red apples - aromatically vivacious. It's round of bead and bristling with crunchy green-apple acidity. Ultra-dry with a measured tease of mid-palate sweetness. Very good

Tasmania's House of Arras has been awarded the sparkling category winner this year, with their 99-point example; they also host three other wines in the top-rated list. When talking sparkling red, the uniquely Australian sparkling shiraz and a McLaren Vale blend, the JOSEPH Sparkling Red, all feature.

The Real Review
#1 of 28 Nebbiolo in Australia
Garnet with tawny edges - very Euro. Dried roses, bitumen firm oak, concentrated and ripe fruit, fragrant. It's powerful and built to unfurl over the next decade. Time in the glass releases latent tannins. Excellent wine.

2019 JOSEPH First Run – Best Multi-Regional Oil
Judges Notes: Complex nut, artichoke, fig leaf and green grassy aromas. Fresh aromas persists on the palate and aftertaste. Light but creamy mouthfeel with a homogenised blend of chilli pepper, bitterness and astringency on the finish. Long length and delicious.
