Top Wineries of Australia 2020: 4 to 1

Cullen: Best known for being a biodynamic, carbon-positive winery crafting beautiful cabernet-based red Diana Madeline and chardonnay Kevin John, as well as pure cabernet sauvignon named Vanya after the winemaker. And occasional bottlings produced according to the biodynamic calendar. Yalumba: Best known for Barossa shiraz and grenache, Eden Valley riesling, Coonawarra cabernet. Yalumba is truly an all-rounder. Noted for championing the traditional Aussie cab-shiraz blend (The Signature dates back to 1962), and the less-trad viognier. Penfolds: Best known for Grange, and a bevy of similarly statuesque red beauties, but also stunning chardonnays Yattarna and Reserve Bin A. Yarra Yering: Best known for sublime cabernet sauvignon and Bordeaux-style red blends, shiraz, pinot noir and blends of Portuguese red grapes, from some of the Yarra’s oldest vines.
