    take a foothold meaning that chemical treatment can be kept to an absolute minimum Viticulture in Chile is deeply rooted in French wine growing traditions In the nineteenth century France was the holiday destination for the well to do Chilean gentlemen and drinking wine was part of it This explains why Chilean vineyards are dedicated almost exclusively to French grape varieties For red wines Chile grows Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Syrah Pinot Noir and Carmenère predominantly and for white wines we find Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier plus a handful of others Carmenère can be considered a speciality just like Zinfandel is for California Pinotage for South Africa and Malbec for Argentina And yet it is an ancient grape variety from the Bordeaux area After the Phylloxera disaster it did not return in the Bordelais vineyards The variety is sensitive to coulure a condition that affects the setting of the fruit when the growing season is too cold so a bunch can produce ripe and green berries at the same time and was therefore abandoned In Chile however the climate is perfect for Carmenère it gives soft and round wines a kind of spicy Merlot as it were It became famous in 1994 when an extensive ampelographic study proved that a lot of Chilean Merlot was in fact Carmenère Veramonte Reserva Merlot Producer Veramonte Grape variety 95 Merlot and 5 Cabernet Sauvignon Region Casablanca Valley Read more Veramonte Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Producer Veramonte Grape variety 95 Cabernet Sauvignon 5 Merlot Region Colchagua Valley Read more Las Condes Sauvignon Blanc Producer Las Condes Grape variety Sauvignon Blanc Region Central Valley Read more Las Condes Chardonnay Producer Las Condes Grape variety Chardonnay Region Central Valley Read more Las Condes Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé Producer Las Condes Grape variety Cabernet Sauvignon Region Central Valley Read

    to give French winemakers a chance to compete with the New World In the new system three categories are recognised what used to be Appellation d Origine Contrôlée is now called Appellation d Origine Protégé and remains theoretically the highest quality tier What used to be called Vin de Pays is now called Indication d Origine Protégé and is the second quality tier Gone altogether is the category of VDQS that was always considered to be a mere waiting room for AOC status Vin de Table is changed into the new category Vin de France Now producers can state grape variety and vintage on the label where that used to be prohibited And that is a huge improvement In the old days when you blended together for instance a cool vintage Loire Sauvignon Blanc lean stuff with some South of France Sauvignon Blanc fruity stuff you had to label it Vin de Table Blanc de Blancs Now you can label it Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Vin de France Gone is the anonymous look of mediocre bulk wine here is a proud French wine made from a trendy grape variety and from the latest available vintage Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Altenberg Producer Engel Dom Fernand Grape variety Region Elzas Read more Pinot Noir Cuvée Fernand Producer Engel Dom Fernand Grape variety Region Elzas Read more AL Dom de la Croix Bouquie Blanc Producer Alpha Loire Grape variety 100 Sauvignon Blanc Region Loire Read more AL Dom de la Croix Melier Producer Alpha Loire Grape variety 100 Chenin Blanc Region Loire Read more Châteauneuf du Pape La Combe des Fous Producer Clos Saint Jean Grape variety Region Rhône Read more AL EnClos du Petit Chien Blanc Producer Alpha Loire Grape variety 90 Sauvignon Blanc 10 Chardonnay Region Loire Read more Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge

    the high acidity that Riesling has naturally German winemakers are always looking for harmony whereby acidity and minerality are more important than the sweetness of the wine Where sweetness does become important is when the grapes are harvested late Sweet wines are classified in tiers Kabinett regular quality Spätlese late harvest Auslese harvest of selected bunches Beerenauslese harvest of selected berries and Trockenbeerenauslese harvest of selected berries touched by Botrytis These latter two can be truly stunningly complex sweet and acidic at the same time and keeping a wonderful freshness Icewine is something different altogether the vintner takes a huge risk by not harvesting a number of bunches and wait for them to get frozen whilst still on the vine The grapes have to be at a temperature of 7 C before they are harvested and pressed immediately The resulting wine is very concentrated sweet and has soaring acidity Louis Dry Riesling Producer Guntrum Louis Grape variety Riesling Region Rheinhessen Read more Riesling Niersteiner Oelberg Spätlese Trocken Producer Guntrum Louis Grape variety Riesling Region Rheinhessen Read more Riesling Oppenheimer Sackträger Spätlese Trocken Producer Guntrum Louis Grape variety Riesling Region Rheinhessen Read more Grauburgunder Kabinett Trocken Producer Guntrum Louis Grape variety

    once you have started the journey In Italy the so called international grape varieties are rarely considered to be the highest standard possible but they are seen as a welcome addition to the own rich supply of wines You can find solo bottlings of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc but most of the times these varieties play a minor role in blends Cabernet Franc and Merlot are met more often and can climb to incredible heights but Cabernet Sauvignon not so much Pinot Noir is called Pinot Nero in Piedmont and differs considerably from what is produced from this grape anywhere else in the world The occasional pocket of Syrah pops up mostly used in blends Italy is one of the largest producers of fine wine in the world The whole industry has been radically modernised in recent history the searingly acidic lean and mean Chianti of the seventies virtually no longer exists Italian wines are sub divided into quality tiers according to their origin In ascending order we recognise Vino da Tavola Indicazione Geografica Tipica IGT Denominazione di Origine Controllata DOC and Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita DOCG In theory the latter category is the best but there are IGT wines that are better by far than some DOCG wines Important grape varieties for red wine Sangiovese Nebbiolo Barbera and Primitivo Important grape varieties for white wine Trebbiano Moscato Garganega and Malvasia All in all there are some 300 grape varieties planted in Italy all of them adding their own character to the broad palate of Italian wines Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino DOC Producer Poggione Tenuta Il Grape variety Region Toscane Read more Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Producer Poggione Tenuta Il Grape variety Region Toscane Read more Renzo Masi Poggerissi Bianco Producer Masi Renzo Grape variety

    dynamic one Ten years ago there were 7 400 hectares of vineyard that number has now increased to 34 270 Marlborough is the most important region by far with its 22 587 hectares and indeed Sauvignon Blanc is the most important grape variety with almost 20 000 hectares Pinot Noir is growing very strong and is proving to feel quite at home in the cool climate In some little corners of the North Island it produces wines with an almost European character Almost 5 000 hectares are now devoted to Pinot Noir New Zealand is predominantly producing white wines roughly 27 000 hectares of white against 7 300 of red Export has become very important in a very short space of time in 1981 2 of total production was exported in 1991 that was 12 in 2001 35 and in 2011 it was a whopping 70 and production has increased explosively That is no mean feat If there is one thing that characterizes the New Zealand wine industry it is their collective obsession with quality It was the first wine producing country that by and large unanimously embraced the screwcap as the better option As one winegrower once said I work hard all year to grow the best grapes I can I work hard during harvest to get my grapes to the cellar in perfect condition Iwork hard in the cellar to get the best wine I can Why would I risk all that closing the bottle with a chunk of dead wood It may be somewhat bluntly put but it certainly holds a grain of truth Premium Sauvignon Blanc Producer Saint Clair Grape variety Sauvignon Blanc Region Marlborough Read more Premium Pinot Gris Producer Saint Clair Grape variety Pinot Gris Region Marlborough Read more Premium Riesling Producer Saint Clair

    better every year Commonly Speak to anyone who has been to South Africa and they will tell you that it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world The scenery impresses with its natural beauty and the climate is a dream come true long hot summers and short mild winters who wouldn t dream of that The climate is highly suited to viticulture and the ever progressing cellar technique improves the wines from year to year More importantly however is the insight to the combination of grape terroir which leads to better and better wines South Africa may be a country with a long history in viticulture but the wine growers of the Cape are looking more and more for their own identity Regionality is playing an increasing role but also the recognition of individual sites Cool climate is the buzz word as wines from a cool climate tend to be more interesting than wines from hot climatic areas especially true for the aromatic white wines There is a lot we can expect from South Africa in the coming years Meerlust Rubicon Producer Meerlust Grape variety 69 Cabernet Sauvignon 19 Merlot and 12 Cabernet Franc Region Stellenbosch Read more Delheim Chenin Blanc Producer Delheim Grape variety Region Stellenbosch Read more Delheim Cabernet Shiraz Producer Delheim Grape variety Region Stellenbosch Read more Meerlust Chardonnay Producer Meerlust Grape variety Chardonnay Region Stellenbosch Read more Meerlust Pinot Noir Producer Meerlust Grape variety Pinot Noir Region Stellenbosch Read more Delheim Pinotage Rosé Producer Delheim Grape variety 95 Pinotage 5 Muscat de Frontignan Region Stellenbosch Read more Delheim Chardonnay Producer Delheim Grape variety 100 Chardonnay Region Stellenbosch Read more Delheim Shiraz Producer Delheim Grape variety Shiraz Region Stellenbosch Read more Delheim Cabernet Sauvignon Producer Delheim Grape variety Cabernet Sauvignon Region Stellenbosch Read more

    seems as if every year two or three regions are rediscovered Rueda for instance is a strong newcomer and a clear example of how modern technique in the cellar has a direct influence on the quality of the wine produced crisp dry fresh and very fruity white wine that was nigh unthinkable some 25 years ago Spain is the world s biggest wine country in terms of vineyards 1 2 million hectares of them Still Spain is not the biggest wine producer of the world because of the warm climate Vines are planted not as dense and therefore production is lower yet still an admirable 46 million hectolitre or 17 of World production Typical for Spain is the Tempranillo grape variety that is planted under an amazing number of names in practically every region and produces a powerful red wine almost anywhere Red wines can be made from Garnacha Grenache Monastrell Mourvèdre or Cariñena Carignan as well as from international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Syrah and Pinot Noir plus a handful of local varieties White wine is made from Viura that grows under a number of names just like Tempranillo Verdejo Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc and Garnacha Blanca plus a number of lesser known grape varieties that slowly disappear In the north west province of Galicia you can find Godello Treixadura and Albariño that grow almost nowhere else although across the border in Portugal you can find Trajadura and Alvarinho These varieties are now proving to be sought after and have written yet a new chapter for viticulture in Spain Condado de Oriza Joven Producer Solís Félix Grape variety Region Ribera del Duero Read more Condado de Oriza Crianza Producer Solís Félix Grape variety Region Ribera del Duero Read more Valdelagunde Rueda DO Producer Bodegas Pedro Escudero Grape variety
