Gewurztraminer, International Wine Grape Of The Cool-Climate World

With a little understanding, the bold wines made of the Gewurztraminer wine grape win lifelong devotees, this writer included. Like Riesling, the grape can work wonders across cool-climate zones, its wines same-place alternatives to those taut ones.

A Solar System Or A Galaxy?

Noble Rot Magazine recently ran a blind ‘Champagne vs English Sparkling Wine’tasting in which Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label placed higher than a number of fêted smaller producers(the first iteration of this tasting, back in 2015, also saw Brut Réserves from Taittinger and Pol Roger finish above Chartogne-Taillet, Bêreche and Marguet). When this happens – and it is not a freak occurrence – should we really be surprised?

ARE APPELLATIONS STILL USEFUL?

ARE APPELLATIONS STILL USEFUL?

wine appellationThe Wine Scholar Guild recently hosted a comprehensive discussion of the future of appellations featuring Andrew Jeffords and Robert Joseph. Only the first half of the conversation is available to non-members but that is sufficient to get the issues on the table. Jeffords begins by making an important distinction between geographical indications and European appellations that specify production methods. They raise distinctly different issues.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY THE “BODY” OF A WINE

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY THE “BODY” OF A WINE

It is routine in tasting notes and discussions about wine to refer to a wine’s body. But what exactly do we mean by that? Of course “body” refers to the wine’s mouthfeel and thus is an evaluation of tactile sensations in the mouth. But what, specifically, are the elements of body.

Some personal anecdotes

People do sometimes ask me about the other part of wine writing, since I usually write about data, rather about wines themselves. Do I drink the stuff, and what do I think about it? Well, just for a change, I will write one post about it.

Wine Wisdom for 2021

Wine Wisdom for 2021

About the only promise I can make for 2021 is more wine information. I have really enjoyed learning more about wine, the vines, and the various countries that produce wine. Who is the parent? (per Winespeed): DNA fingerprinting at the University of California, Davis in the late 1990s identified gouais blanc (goo-AY blahnk) as one of the ancient “founder varieties.”

Does The Cost Of The Wine Make It Taste Better?

Does The Cost Of The Wine Make It Taste Better?

We are convinced that a talented winemaker can make a good, cheap wine just as well as a great, expensive wine. But there is considerable effort being made in California to produce ridiculously expensive wines just to raise a winery’s image.

Exponential increase in wine prices (1980-2000)

Exponential increase in wine prices (1980-2000)

Recently, both Neal Hulkower (The cost of drinking wine history) and Eric Asimov (How income inequality has erased your chance to drink the great wines) have commented on the prices of modern high-quality wines, compared to The Good Old Days. Well, I am just as old as they are, so I figure I can do this, too.

10 ridiculous ways to open a wine bottle without a corkscrew

10 ridiculous ways to open a wine bottle without a corkscrew

It’s Friday night and the bottle of wine you’ve been saving all week is calling your name. The glass is ready to go, but wait. Where on earth is the corkscrew? How does one possibly own such a nice wine but not a corkscrew that gives access to said delicious wine? Whatever the reason you don’t have a corkscrew, don’t put the wine away just yet. the drinks business is here to help with a range of borderline absurd methods to get that wine open, no corkscrew required. Who doesn’t like a challenge anyway? Before you get started, maybe just double-check that the wine bottle doesn't have a screwcap and it's not a simple twist job – this might save a lot of potential mess.

In Search Of Familiarity

It was a comment by a South African producer a few weeks ago that set me thinking. He said, in effect, that South Africa isn’t making enough Chardonnay. It should, he said, be planting more.
