Mourvedre: Sidelined by Phylloxera No More

One of the silver linings of the last nine months unable to travel has been the chance to spend time virtually with some of California winemakers whose work I find inspiring. One of these is Bedrock Wine Company's Morgan Twain-Peterson. He and I were paired up in the finale of the California Wine Institute's "Behind the Wine" series.

On wine and good health in the pandemic circa 1348 (my Georgetown Humanities Initiative lecture).

When esteemed wine educator Karen MacNeil upbraided me last year for writing about a wine and its effect on my metabolism, it only reminded me of what a soulless wine writer she is. And her pungent words came to mind this week when I delivered a virtual lecture on wine as an expression of Western culture for the Georgetown University Humanities Initiative.

SA now has 300 million litres of unsold wine - here's how it will probably play out

Ahead of the incoming harvest, South African wine producers are still stuck with surplus stock of 280 million to 300 million litres of wine.
This is the equivalent of total wine sales in the country in the past year.
Wine prices have already started to fall as producers try to shift product, while next year’s grape harvest could end up in juice or hand sanitiser.

ALMOST CLUB DECEMBER 2020 EDITION – 50 WINES COVERED

Not all wines can be great. Plenty are just ok drinks. And some are just bad.

Here then is a selection of wines that almost made it to a pass mark (silver medal standard) in December.

Notably, there were a bunch of wines in here that were just plain faulty. Mercaptans, oxidation. Who even bottles these things, let alone sends them out for review?

Lodi winegrowing, marketing, and its Alta Mesa appellation

How does the "outside world" look at the wine regions of Lodi, which were almost unknown to the rest of the world up until the 1990s? Or, in fact, not until after the Lodi Winegrape Commission was formed by the region's growers in 1991.

What are the Australian and Spanish grape-growers doing?

Commenting on the effects of climate change in the wine industry, Jancis Robinson (What price terroir in an era of climate change?) recently commented:

Here then is the dilemma which will face Bordeaux châteaux in the next 20 to 50 years. Might they move to a cooler region and plant their present famous varieties, Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc and Merlot, or, perhaps stay put in Bordeaux and grow more heat-tolerant varieties such as Syrah and Grenache?

Why Is Screaming Eagle’s Winemaker Making $90 6-Packs of Lager?

Why Is Screaming Eagle’s Winemaker Making $90 6-Packs of Lager?

Screaming Eagle famously makes some of the most well-regarded, limited, and absolutely jaw-droppingly expensive wine in all of America. Owned today by billionaire Stan Kroenke, Screaming Eagle’s Sauvignon Blanc sells for over $5,000 a bottle on average, and currently has a waiting list that reportedly takes over a decade to ascend to the top of, simply to be allowed to purchase bottles from the mere 400 to 750 cases released per year. This remains such an achievement to would-be buyers that it’s the third most prominent link on the winery’s website.

SA Wine Harvest Underway, Amidst Growing Concerns

South Africa’s 2021 wine harvest is well under way, and while producers and viticulturists are optimistic about the quality of this year’s vintage following favourable weather conditions, cellar capacity and financial viability remain a big concern due to the continued alcohol ban.

One More Round of “Fuck Trump,” With Feeling

One More Round of “Fuck Trump,” With Feeling

It all started in a stockpot. A thick slurry of vibrant orange habanero chile peppers studded with pulp and seeds, so fiery that those processing the mixture wear hazmat suits, goggles and masks to protect themselves from the swirling spirit. As incendiary as its habanero base is its name: Fuck Trump and His Stupid Fucking Wall. And it’s in its last run.

How Buscema is changing Nicolás Catena Zapata 2017

In the five years since taking over the role of winemaker full-time at Catena Zapata, Fernando Buscema has been justifying the notices he was getting as one of Argentina’s most promising stars. He has a number of fingers in a number of pies – oenological, academic and entrepreneurial – and his LinkedIn page already boasts the likes of Lafite, CARO and now Catena Zapata. His sole responsibility there is to make luxury blend Nicolás Catena Zapata, a wine that he is taking in a bold new direction. He explains how to Peter Dean, as well as tastes the new Nicolás Catena Zapata 2017 alongside the 2015 and 2016 vintages.

Geoffrey Dean on South Africa’s Babylonstoren story

Hotfooting it back from South Africa before quarantine came into effect, Geoffrey Dean reflects on his experiences there. One winery he visited, Babylonstoren, in the Simonsberg-Paarl ward, represented some hope amongst the troubles in the country. Throughout the pandemic the estate has managed to keep all of its 300 staff, and sales are up 20-30%, despite the lack of international visitors to its acclaimed gardens. Dean talks to cellar master Charl Coetzee about how they have achieved this.
