THE ULTIMATE CURSE IS THE SAYING “MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES”. On the face of it, this sounds like a positive saying but like the half glass full analogy it can be taken both ways. This last 12 months has seen the word disruption appear time and time again in all aspects of society, and no less the wine industry. For the latter it has been interesting times indeed. We have seen the beginnings of generational changeover and the me-generation yet to embrace wine in the same way that the baby boomers carried the industry on its shoulders. Like all things it will probably change in the next five years, with exports filling the gaps in the meantime. Shiraz will probably be “discovered” again in 2025. These are challenging, but also…

HISTORY-MAKING AWARDS THE 2019 Australian Women In Wine Awards (AWIWA) has made history, kicking off the inaugural USA Aussie Wine Month in New York. Now in its fifth year, the awards were announced in New York and live streamed around the world with eight of the nine winners attending in person to receive their award. Wine Australia chose the awards to launch its Far From Ordinary month-long campaign, the largest Australian wine promotion ever held in the US. The significance of the AWIWA and its timing was not lost on Wine Australia CEO, Andreas Clark. “We believe that our diverse wine community is one of our greatest strengths that help make our wine Far From Ordinary, and we are delighted to sponsor the Honorary Australian Woman In Wine USA and the Viticulturist of the…

SETTING THE HEMP AMONG THE VINES THE impact of legal recreational marijuana as a potential disruptor for wine is being closely watched by the global wine industry, but in New Zealand, it’s the drug’s fast-growing cousin hemp that’s attracting attention. In late 2018, Marlborough grapegrower Kirsty Harkness obtained a licence to grow hemp among vines, trialling its potential benefits for the vineyard and wider environment. A strain of the cannabis sativa family, hemp has none of marijuana’s psychoactive compounds, instead being valued for its versatile fibre which can be used for clothing/textiles, rope, insulation, paper, bio-plastics, biofuel, animal feed and more. A hectare of hemp will also yield around one tonne of seeds, which are rich sources of protein, omegas 3, 6 and 9, fibre and minerals. Harkness, the MD and…

restoring a reputation

FEBRUARY 2020 marks a significant moment in the evolution of Bordeaux’s Crus Bourgeois classification. After five years of work and legal preparation, Crus Bourgeois is moving to a fiveyear classification. For the decade of vintages from 2008 to 2017, Crus Bourgeois has steered a steady, fairly unobtrusive ship, working solidly on rebuilding reputation and consequence, after a damaging and turbulent period at the beginning of the millennium. As part of reputation recovery, the organisation outsourced, to an independent third-party body, responsibility for ensuring impartiality and minimum wine quality standards. This body conducted the blind tasting assessments on which entry to Crus Bourgeois is granted. For traditional bordeaux, outsourcing this critical step was fairly revolutionary. It is worth noting that when the St Emilion classification became mired in controversy a few years…

more choice as sparklers light up the market

THERE has been an explosion in types of sparkling wine. The choice of wines in the marketplace makes it a very exciting category. No longer are we restricted to choosing champagne and perhaps you should consider fizz as an everyday wine, or maybe you already do. The choices start in the vineyard. Grapes for sparkling wine are generally selected from cool climates and can be slightly under ripe if they are going to be made into wine by the traditional method. But if the secondary fermentation is going to be carried out in tank, or if it is being made by the ancestral method, then the grapes will need to provide all the flavours so they can be grown in warmer climates. Whatever style of sparkling wine you need to have…
