WINNERS

Hall of Fame 2019

The Hall of Fame is a prestigious list of establishments who have achieved leading status either by winning the Main Award once or the same State/Territory or Category award three times. Each year, new successful establishments are added to Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards Hall of Fame. To maintain a current listing however, they must enter and maintain their glass rating each year, which is no easy feat! The Hall of Fame’s individual award is presented periodically to recognise an outstanding individual and their contribution to the Sommelier Profession and to training and education and the service of fine wine within the Australian Hospitality and Tourism Industries.

Winning one of the most highly regarded awards in the wine industry is a real honour. It is an incredible feeling to know we have made it this far; it makes it even more exciting for the future. It has definitely increased our guest interest and we have had a lot of amazing feedback, which is carrying the wine passion at Jonah’s even further. Guests are enjoying the read as well as the wines and that is just a great achievement!

Niels Sluiman - Jonah's

It's been really good for business. We've always been known as a destination for wine lovers and the award has now cemented that position for us. We've had customers come in and see the wine list and drink the wines because they've heard about the award and that definitely adds something special to the place.

Nick Hildebrandt - Bentley

Winning the Wine List of the Year Award has legitimised a less-than-conventional, narrative-based approach to listing and selling delicious wine. I'm sure that other sommeliers with a song in their heart and a fierce yearning to tell stories will be heartened by our success and feel more confident in submitting their offering.

Of course the great and rare are dotted through but every option is based on excellence at whatever price point. The wine flights are always of note and its by the glass selection outstanding.

Bentley maintains the position at, or close to, the summit of Sydney dining that it has occupied for more than a decade. Its list has maintained the quality it needed to win the 2015 Australia's Wine List of the Year. Now Nick Hilderbrandt and Brent Savage have four 3 glass restaurants in Sydney's CBD. While Bentley's focus is on sustainability and new producers, the great traditional winemakers, too, are given their due. Every base is covered with occasional features throwing the spotlight on neglected areas (marc, Chartreuse) or those which are well nigh impossible to source (Jacques Selosse). Exemplary.

An outstanding, comprehensive selection of wines with a compelling number of cellared wines. The classics are well represented, though there is a good number of contemporary listings too, as well as avant-garde wines for 'Wine Explorers'. The Champagne collection superb, riesling is a highlight, and there is also a good number of chenins and from the Loire, and Rhone whites, which you don't always see on Australian wine lists. Australian chardonnay, pinot and shiraz are well represented, and the Burgundy collection is mind-blowing. Barolo lovers are well-catered for too. There are too many highlights to mention and wine lovers will undeniably be in seventh heaven.

  • Wine Price: $$$
With around 2785 wines to choose from this is one serious-looking wine list. All Rockpool Bar & Grill restaurants excel in the wine department, but Perth distinguishes itself with West Australia entries and some personal touches. Therefore, the current list has a dedicated 'sommelier select' selection of landmark sherry producer and wunderkind Equipo Navazos, epic in its scope and scale. Half bottles run surprisingly deep, and, of course, Champagne is a landmark feature in this list with a wealth of grower producers matched by a collection of grand marques and big name favourites. For those embarking on serious proteins from the grill, there's superb Burgundy and Rhone reds, with Barolo, Barbaresco and Brunello compelling amongst the rich offering in this list. Around 70 wines by the glass allows guests to explore more, and to keenly match wine to dishes, something this skilled sommelier team will do with aplomb and the armoury of this outstanding, incredible wine list.

This is a big list literally and figuratively-speaking with 1250 of the world's greatest wines based on the wine collection of owner, Allan Myers. It takes five pages just to view the selection of half bottles and larger format wines! Be prepared to be amazed from the largest collection of Burgundy and Bordeaux in the Southern Hemisphere, to a comprehensive look at the wines of Victoria, especially the western half, and then multiple vintages from fabulous winemakers all over the globe. With 10 sub-categories for red wine alone it could be a long night, or you could find solace in working your way through some fine tastes - including grape rarieties like schonburger and assyritiko - by the glass.

Rockpool Bar & Grill offers quality all the way, although admittedly at a price, with one of the great Australian and French wine listings in Melbourne. The Burgundy and Bordeaux selections - so in tune with the wood-fired grill menu - is drool-worthy. Thanks to Coravin, wines by the glass can now include some superlative offerings such as aged Barolo or the $380 Torbreck The Laird. Multiple vintages of top producers is the kind of one per centers we have come to expect from the Rockpool group, together with an extensive half bottle and magnum collection (depending on your mood). A complete all-rounder, the list finishes with a comprehensive digestif listing, if you can get that far.

What started out originally as a more Italian-focussed wine list in keeping with its Sicilian namesake, Syracuse, has broadened into a thoroughly detailed and exciting world wine list that sizzles and thrills! Full of personality it goes from strength to strength and broadens its reach with a best of listing for wines by the glass, including some lovelies like 2012 La Perla nebbiolo from Lombardy by the glass under Coravin. Sparkling wines, not to mention Champagnes, are eye-opening, just like so much of the list. You are invited into a livelier, more comprehensive wine listing than you have probably ever encountered before. Soak it up. Red wines are possibly even more exciting than whites such are the depths reached with sourcing and multiple vintages offered.
