2022 Australia's Wine List Awards - Entries are open!
Located in the iconic Sydney Opera House, it is fitting that Bennelong won Best Listing of Australian Wines at the 2020 Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards;
A bold and distinct wine list with a near entire focus on Australian wine, a treatise to local product in Australia’s most recognised architectural monument. The ambition could have faltered, but hasn’t, this is a near encyclopaedic collection of Aussie wine with judicious inclusions of mature releases, vertical tranches of prestige wines, a good selection of zeitgeist wine styles and avant garde producers, alongside boutique offerings from some of Australia’s hardest-to-source artisan vignerons. You could quibble that Champagne is the permitted non-Australian interloper, but wow, that section is so impressive it’s almost a conversation in itself. By the glass does justice to the rest of this outstanding wine list with diversity and interest in the general listings and it all elevates with rarities, prestige wines and mature releases in the Coravin ‘premium’ selection. The pay off is realised here, a vision splendid and dedicated. This is so very impressive.
