After a painfully long wait, the December issue of Wine Spectator finally hit the shelves in Australia just before Christmas.
In August, 2014, I was commissioned by Wine Spectator to provide photographs from my library and shoot bespoke images for a massive nine page story on Penfolds Wines. I've worked for the magazine for over ten years now but they have never done such a big story on an Australian winery before.

After two decades of creating images for Penfolds I can't tell you how happy I was to get this incredibly important assignment. It has been the best Christmas present ever.

Wine Spectator emailed me from New York with a very long list of images that they wanted from me.
The images ranged from the magnificent double page photographic opening spread showing the vineyards and winery, to a library image of one of the worlds oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines which is part of the superb Penfolds Block 42 vineyard at Kalimna in the Barossa Valley.

I was also commissioned to photograph the stunning Magill Estate Restaurant for the story. With the limitless patience of head sommelier Ewan Proctor, I managed to capture the feel of this stunning restaurant with the elegance of the fine wine experience that Magill Estate offers, by looking over Ewan’s shoulder while he decants a 2010 Grange.
