Trio of major wine list awards

Aug 04, 2014

Appellation, the restaurant at The Louise Barossa Valley, has just received the third in a row of highly sought after recognitions for its wine list. Two of the 2014 awards are international in scope and one is an Australian national award.

Topping the series is a newly announced World’s Best Wine Lists Awards by London-based publisher World of Fine Wine. Starting with 4,000 entries, a jury of wine reviewers selected 225 restaurant lists from across the globe to receive their inaugural top level three-star rating, including Appellation. The restaurant’s list is one of twenty one award winners based in Australia and is the only winner from South Australia.

US-based Wine Spectator announces its annual Restaurant Wine List Awards with each August magazine issue. Appellation has been named in this prestigious listing for the past five years, and this year is named with a higher level Best of Award of Excellence, again the only restaurant in South Australia with this ranking out of 883 restaurants worldwide. Wine Spectator magazine is one of the most widely accessed wine publications in the world.

And, at a gala event in Sydney last week, Appellation’s sommelier accepted for the seventh year in a row the Wine List of the Year Award from Fine Wine Partners and Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine for another 'Hall of Fame' ranking as South Australia’s best restaurant wine list. This year, the South Australia award is shared with new entrant FermentAsian, another Barossa-based restaurant with a strong wine focus.

Owner Jim Carreker remarked, “We know that guests choose to visit the Barossa because of its long history as one of the world’s outstanding wine regions. As one of the leading providers of memorable wine and food paired dining experiences in the Barossa, we are pleased that our focus on offering a great wine selection is recognised from across the world. Congratulations to sommelier Cassaly Fitzgerald, restaurant manager Emma Welling, executive chef Ryan Edwards and the entire Appellation team".

The Appellation wine list offers over 600 choices, with a natural concentration on Barossa varietals such as shiraz, cabernet, semillion, reisling and blends including excellent examples of grenache,shiraz and matero. The list also features wines from across Australia and the great wine regions of the world. Appellation is open for dining seven nights a week from 7pm. The restaurant is co-located with luxury vineyard retreat, The Louise.
