Congratulations, Theresa Breuer! Just a few weeks after she left these shores, Theresa was named German Winemaker of the Year by influential European wine magazine Falstaff. Great news among many snippets in this month’s newsletter. We’ve had various domestic releases, such as the excellent 2015 single-vineyard Rieslings from Frankland Estate , Wantirna Estate‘s 2014 Lily Pinot and a leftfield, limited-edition Chardonnay from Airlie Bank. There’s also been a clamour for the 2013 Chablis from Louis Michel and new Rhônes from Pierre Amadieu of Gigondas. On top of that, Australia’s unquenchable thirst for Pittnauer‘s Blaufränkisch rosé and Scorpo Pinot Gris can at last be slaked – for now, at least.
