Tyson Stelzer has released his top 12 Australian wines of 2020 under $25 and Silver Lining Sauvignon Blanc has made the grade!
To his 15k Instagram followers Tyson wrote; “By glorious fortune, it just happens to fall out that this is a wonderfully diverse line up this year, with representation of sauvignon blanc, shiraz, riesling, merlot, rosé, sparkling, sparkling shiraz and a grenache blend. The notable omissions are chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon, both of which enjoy disproportionate representation in my Top 12 Australian Wines of 2020 – it pays to spend more on these varieties.
I surprised myself that sauvignon blanc is the surprise star under $25 this year. This is testimony entirely to the stunning 2020 season in the Adelaide Hills. Sentiment plays nothing in my wine scoring, but the good folk of the Hills sure deserve a stunning vintage after the year they’ve had! And it’s not just sauvignon – it turns out that the Adelaide Hills makes up more than half of this list, thanks most of all to Mike Press Wines, with four inclusions! If you win the bargain award every year, it means you’re underpriced, right?!
