Deep Woods Estate, McHenry Hohnen, Vasse Felix and Voyager Estate have been named on Young Gun of Wine’s Top 50 Vineyard list for 2021.

The list was compiled to feature the vineyards which best exemplified the values of sustainability, innovation and growing great wine.

Judges included viticulturists Catherine Kidman, Mark Walpole, Mary Retallack and Lee Haselgrove and the Australian Financial Review’s wine and drinks columnist Max Allen.

Ms Retallack said the awards were an opportunity to celebrate the innovative and regenerative approaches being taken to produce quality grapes.

“I was absolutely inspired by the holistic approach that winegrowers are taking to fully integrate their practices, nurture the soil, vines and surrounding ecology while minimising intervention,” Ms Retallack said.

“Smart decision-making saves time and resources, and this demonstrates a confidence in growing wine grapes that comes with experience and observing the land.

“The sharing of these valuable insights accelerates practice change, celebrates regenerative approaches and everyone benefits.”

The list was made up of 20 vineyards from South Australia, 11 from Victoria, eight from New South Wales and the ACT and seven from Tasmania.

Young Gun of Wine is an events and media company based in Victoria.
