Wine Companion: Winemakers on fortified wines

Blurb: "Fortified wines arguably represent the best value of all Australian wines given the cost of production, notably in the amount of working capital tied up for decades," says James Halliday.

Australia produces some of the world’s finest examples of topaque/muscadelle, muscat, and tawny fortified wines – especially from Rutherglen, Glenrowan and the Riverina wine regions.

We asked five masters of fortified wines about their winemaking process, the challenges they come up against, and when it comes to wines with such rich history, how their approach has changed or evolved.
