One of the world's top wine authorities, Matthew Jukes takes a liking to some top FTP producers

Once a year, London-based Jukes compiles his list of the 100 best Aussie wines going around. He has a truly international perspective and so when he says our local drops are right up there, you know the wines are being judged alongside the world's best. I've taken all the work out of the task and compiled some mixed pack suggestions from FTP producers who feature heavily in this year's list. The wines he loves come from caring and meticulous wine producers whom I love dearly, and I know you'll love them too once you taste their delicious offerings. These packs are compiled for your convenience but don't forget you can put your very own pack together with a few easy clicks. Don't like white? Follow my pack and swap the whites for some more reds. Only drink shiraz? Grab a straight 6 or 12. Easy!

Cheers, and good drinking

The Lane - Adelaide Hills

New to From The Producer is The lane, a 5 Star James Halliday producer loved by Matthew Jukes. This place is simply one of the most magical places on earth for lunch and  the wines draw you in sip by sip seeing you eat out of the palm of their hands by night's end. Jukes awarded the Beginning Chardonnay a place in his Top 100 but there were special mentions for the Gathering Sauvignon/Semillion, the Reunion Shiraz, the RG Chardonnay, and the 19th Meeting Cabernet Sauvignon. These are top-flight wines, mark my words. We dropped in for lunch on our way back from Margaret River and I must say, I had Pinot firmly on my mind..... but despite the beauty of the Pinot, it was the 19th Meeting Cabernet that had me dumbstruck and reaching for a full glass..... who'd have guessed it.

Tahbilk - Nagambie Lakes

Asked about his favourite producer at his Top 100 tasting in London, Jukes kept finding himself saying "go to Tahbilk – the wines are simply gob-smacking" over and over again. He is a massive fan of their Marsanne (a true Aussie Icon) and the 2014 vintage was in his Top 100 last year. But it's their take on Viognier that has his attention this year landing them their first of two slots. The second slot goes to the Cane Cut Marsanne (sweet) because it is just so "thrilling and alluring" that he can't believe that there is any left to be had. I have long been a massive fan of their Roussane Marsanne Viognier blend and this is definitely a winter white wine..... It also has 95 Sir Halliday points and represents sensational value.

Fowles - Strathbogie Ranges

Well, I have to say I was pretty chuffed to see the Fowles Wine 'Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch' Shiraz in the Top 100. Not just because they are great producers but because I picked this wine's little sis (Are You Game Shiraz) in my top wines of 2016. Some of you will remember tasting it at my summer drinking tasting session late last year... and some won't remember much at all. I love the real "pop" of these cool-climate, spicy and supple wines. Great value drinking here and you simply cannot go wrong with the mixed six I've put together on this one.

Lake Breeze - Langhorne Creek

"What do you call a wine that had legendary status years ago but which still insists on building on its past glories with every year that passes? A super-legend, a divine-wine, a commander-in-chief-in-perpetuity? I don’t know, but what I do know is that 2013 Bernoota collected yet another Trophy last year in The Great Australian Red competition making it the most awarded, great value wine made from this blend in Australia. This is a faultless creation and it is only twenty-three quid. It is world class, massively memorable, grippingly balanced and it will live for an eternity. The Follett family is guaranteed a place in the Australian Hall of Fame of Wine for their services to great value greatness. They have another stunner in their ranks, too, 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon which shuns Shiraz, and focusses purely on Cabernet and this, too, is a veritable tour de force." - Matthew Jukes
