Can you guess the four Australlian wineries named among the top 100 in the world?

Four Australian wineries have been named among a list of the top 100 in the world by US-based Wine & Spirits Magazine.


The quartet includes South Australian producers Penfolds and d'Arenberg, both with high profiles in North America, alongside tiny Victorian pair Bindi Wines and Chambers Rosewood Vineyard.

“It’s been a challenging year for wine retailers to keep up with demand," said magazine editor Joshua Greene. 

"We were pleased to be able to shepherd 9,200 wines through our blind tasting process, focusing on the categories important to our readers and finding a host of great new releases to share. 

"There is a lot of delicious and compelling wine from the producers in our Top 100.

"For the Australian wineries on the list, this is a bright spot in an incredibly tough year, and shows they are doing Australian wine proud on a global scale."

Penfolds was named on the list for the 28th time and only the US, France, Italy and Spain and more than four producers listed. 

Bindi specialises in cool-climate pinot noir and chardonnay in the Macedon ranges in Victoria, while Chambers Rosewood is based in Rutherglen in north-east Victoria. 

It is worth noting the list only covers wines that are available in the US market and that were tasted by the magazine's panel.
