This weekend marks Australia’s busiest auction schedule since May, CoreLogic data reveals.

There will be 2,719 homes put to market around the country, a 7.2 percent increase on last week. Melbourne will be the busiest capital, with 1,207 homes to go under the hammer compared with 1,158 the previous week. In Sydney, 988 homes will be up for grabs, up from 891 on last week. 

All the smaller capitals will also see more auction action than last week, with Adelaide offering 190 homes, Brisbane 180 homes, Canberra 143 homes and Perth 10 homes. Tasmania has just one home going to auction.

While the numbers represent week-on-week increases, they are well below figures from this time last year, when 4,981 homes were scheduled for auction, the busiest week since CoreLogic records began in 2008.

Sparkling wine flows as Australian winemaker takes out top international award

An Australian winemaker has taken out the top prize for sparkling wine at the International Wine Challenge, the first time a local winemaker has done so. It marks just the second time in the competition’s 40-year history that the award has gone to a winemaker outside France’s Champagne region.

Tasmanian-based House of Arras’ chief winemaker, Ed Carr, was presented with the award for Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at a special ceremony in London earlier this week.

“I’m incredibly honoured to be named this year’s Sparkling Winemaker of the Year. It’s a challenge to describe the feeling, but I’m proud to be recognised amongst my peers for such a significant international award,” Mr Carr said.

The IWC is considered one of the world’s most rigorous and impartial wine competitions. This year, France topped the medal tally with 72 gold, 394 silver and 455 bronze medals – extending their haul by 84 more wins than last year.  

The 40-year-old competition is considered one of the most influential events in the winemaking calendar.

Australian winemakers took out second place, with 54 gold, 250 silver and 154 bronze medals. Australia also won 19 trophies, 10 of which went to South Australia.

House of Arras also received the Australian Sparkling Trophy for its 2014 House of Arras Blanc de Blancs, as well as two gold and six silver medals.

Tasmania’s cool climate and soil make it ideal for producing world-class sparkling wine says Ed Carr (pictured).

Mr Carr said Tasmania’s cool climate and terroir were equal to the world’s best sparkling wine regions. The wins follow a strong showing this year at Australia’s National Wine Show and the Decanter World Wine Awards, where House of Arras also collected awards.

“2024 has been an outstanding year on the awards front, and I’m honoured to add this recent recognition from the International Wine Challenge to the mantle,” he said.
