Score: 8.8

In a stellar wine state, filled with stellar wine regions, The Barossa stands out as a star. Panellist Christine Salins gets it right: “Where else in the world,” she asks, “can you taste a 100-year-old tawny port, experience Lachlan Colwill’s sublime food, cruise around vineyards in a 1962 Daimler used on royal visits, or meet the doyenne of Australian food, Maggie Beer, at her delightful Pheasant Farm?” Yes, with its blend of heritage and contemporary, country rustic and city chic, casual and luxury, European and quintessentially Australian, a gourmet break here ticks all the boxes.
