2021 James Halliday Wine Companion


he James Halliday Wine Companion is the most comprehensive guide to Australian wine and wineries. The Halliday Wine Companion is the go-to guide for wine ratings, regions, varietals, winery reviews and a curated selection of the best wines in Australia. The 2021 edition is the result of hundreds of hours of tasting by the Halliday Wine Companion team. After 9000 reviews of Australian Wines, Swift + Moore are proud to represent exceptionally recognised producers including Wangolina, Dowie Doole, Hugh Hamilton Wines, Kirrihill Wines and Latitude 34 Wine Co. Special notes of mention got to Wangolina who has been named one of the Top Ten Dark Horse Wineries and are now identified as a 5 Star Winery. Congratulations to Anita Goode and her team.

"This is the darkest of all the dark horses, having been content with a terse two-line winery summary in the Halliday Wine Companion that in no way did justice to owner/winemaker Anita Goode or her wines. Things are happening at Wangolina, Anita making admirable wines, including gruner veltliner and excellent Mount Benson semillon and syrah." - James Halliday

We are also pleased to congratulate DOWIE DOOLE who has been elevated to a Red Star Winery, joining Hugh Hamilton wines. This is a recognition of 4 successive years of 5 Star winery ratings.
