My 100 Best Australian Wines List for 2012 was launched last night at Australia House in London. Here is the pdf of the whole list with my tasting notes and also an Excel spreadsheet with RRPs, UK agents and Retail stockists.

NB – It is worth pointing out that my wife, Amelia Jukes, runs a company importing wines from Australia and New Zealand in the UK (called Hallowed Ground) and three of her wines appear in this year’s 100. As many of you will know I taste wine and decide whether or not it makes the grade on merit alone and, as stated on page three and page thirty-four, of the accompanying booklet a wine’s quality is the only reason for its inclusion in this list. This rule has served me well for 25 years of commentating on wine and I see no reason to change it now. You will note that I have never written up any wines in my paid columns for which there is any perceived conflict of interest with Mrs Jukes’s work in the wine business.
