Tag: Regionen,Weingütersigi.hiss @ 10:26

Tokaji By Rebacca Gibb

Hungary’s Royal Tokaji Company plans to double production by opening a new €3.25million winery in September. The official launch of the winery will coincide with the company’s 20th anniversary, co-founded by Decanter columnist and Decanter’s Man of the Year 1995, Hugh Johnson OBE.

The new facility will increase annual production capacity from 30,000 to 60,000 six-bottle cases, and will focus on increasing volumes of dry Furmint and a late harvest wine rather than the region’s signature style Aszu. Continue reading „New Royal Tokaji winery to open in September“

Tag: Allgemeines,Ländersigi.hiss @ 08:39

AUS: Australian Vintage lowers profits forecast

Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 08:31

just-drinks.com editorial team – Exchange rate losses on wine exports have forced Australian Vintage to cut its net profits forecast for the current financial year.

Australian Vintage said today (26 May) that it expects net profits after tax to increase by 75% for the 12 months to the end of June, compared to the same period last year.

The McGuigan wines producer predicted in February that full-year profits, before one-off items, would double. But, an unfavourable rate for the Australian dollar against sterling (GBP) has taken some of the shine off the wine group’s resurgence.

Australia welcomes reduced harvest

Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 06:30

By Rebecca Gibb – Australia is making ‚good progress‘ in reducing its wine glut and now needs to start rebuilding its reputation, a leading industry body says. Following the release of the Winemakers‘ Federation of Australia’s vintage report, which estimates that the size of the 2010 Australian grape harvest has fallen to 1.53m tonnes, the Federation’s chief executive Stephen Strachan told decanter.com, ‚We are pretty pleased.

‚It shows that the industry adjustment process is well underway. While the supply issues are still there, the industry focus is rebuilding confidence. We need to build our reputation internationally. We don’t want to be the country that is on promotion most often.‘

This year’s crush marks a 12% decrease on 2009 and represents a 300,000 tonne reduction compared with the 2008 vintage. Strachan said, ‚We are not adding to the surplus and that’s got to be a good thing. We need to have another reduced intake next year, then we may be able to say we have turned the corner.‘

It is estimated that 8-12,000ha of vines have been removed or abandoned in Australia in the past year. ‚We still have further to go but we never thought there would be such a large reduction in one year,‘ added Strachan.

Hailstorms hit Barolo zone

Tag: Regionensigi.hiss @ 06:27

Two violent hailstorms have hit parts of the Barolo zone, causing serious damage. The storms hit between 2am and 4am on Friday and were scattered among the territory’s communes. La Morra and Serralunga d’Alba were the hardest hit, though the communes of Barolo, Verduno and Roddi were largely unaffected.

Producers fear the damage will affect the quantity of Barolo production for 2010. Pietro Ratti confimed notable damage in his vineyards in La Morra, although the exact amount will not be known for a few days.
Danilo Drocco, winemaker at Fontanafredda in Serralunga, remarked that in the winery’s section of the Lazzarito cru in Serralunga, ‚50% of the crop is lost for the year.‘

Sergio Germano, winemaker of Serralunga’s Ettore Germano estate, also noted serious damage in his Lazzarito plot, although his rows in the nearby Prapo and Ceretta vineyards of Serralunga were only minimally harmed.

While production will be down, producers it is too early to write off the 2010 vintage yet. ‚If this is the worst we get,‘ Vaira said, ‚we will be alright.‘ www.decanter.com

Vega Sicilia to move into Rioja?

Tag: Weingütersigi.hiss @ 17:15

Patricia Langton – Vega Sicilia has set its sights on Rioja, buying vineyards in the north of the region, according to local reports. Local newspaper Diario La Rioja has reported that Vega, considered one of Spain’s finest producers and the star of Ribera del Duero, is believed to have been acquiring parcels of old vineyards in the area around San Vicente de la Sonsierra, part of Rioja’s ‚golden mile‘ and located between the renowned wine towns of Haro and Laguardia.

Over 40 small growers have left the San Vicente de la Sonsierra co-operative over the last two years. Most sold their vineyards – generally mature low-yielding properties with stony soils – last year. A company callled Plalia Inversiones, which is linked to Vega Sicilia, has bought 80-100ha of vineyards – all of them meeting a similar brief.

Speculation has mounted in recent weeks following sightings of key figures from the winery including oenologist Javier Ausás and agricultural engineer Enrique Macías Gómez as the project seems to gather pace.

They are believed to have made wine from the 2009 vintage at a rented winery facility at Lezas near Laguardia. Vega Sicilia has been owned by the Alvarez Díaz family since 1982 and is headed up by Pablo Alvarez. The Grupo Vega Sicilia portfolio also includes Bodegas Alión (Ribera del Duero), Bodegas Pintia (Toro) and Tokay Oremus in Hungary, which were all established or acquired in the 1990s. www.decanter.com

Decanter World Wine Awards unveils record entries and 2010 results

Tag: Allgemeinessigi.hiss @ 12:24

by John Abbott – The Decanter World Wine Awards unveiled a record number of entries this morning, as it announced the results of the 2010 competition. The results were announced to the wine trade at the London International Wine Fair at the ExCeL centre in London’s Docklands.

A total of 10,983 wines were entered, more than double the number of entries to the first competition seven years ago. There had been earlier concerns that the numbers might be down due to natural disasters in Chile, Madeira and Turkey.

But the surprise bumper result confirmed the Decanter World Wine Awards as the largest international consumer wine competition. In total, 68.8% of wines submitted received an award – with 11.9% being awarded Silver medals while 2.86% won a Gold or Regional trophy.

Announcing the results at Decanter’s stand, Sarah Kemp, Decanter publishing director, said ‚it was a record year for Decanter and, in one of the toughest years the wine trade has ever known, we’re thrilled with the result.

‚What we’re most proud of is our judging. Our judges, we believe, are the best in the world – from Isa Bal MS at the Fat Duck, to Jeannie Cho Lee, Asia’s first master of wine.‘

The international trophy winners will be announced at a special dinner at London’s Royal Opera House in Covent Garden on 1 September. Trade members can click to view the Decanter World Wine Awards 2010 results.

Chinese speculators not drinkers will buy Bordeaux 09: survey

Tag: Allgemeines,Ländersigi.hiss @ 12:21

Adam Lechmere – Speculators, not drinkers, are likely to be the biggest Chinese buyers of Bordeaux 2009, according to a decanter.com survey. decanter.com asked five Bordeaux buyers, merchants and restaurateurs both in Hong Kong and mainland China for their opinions on where the Bordeaux 2009 market was headed.

According to some of these veterans, 2009 will be bought to be sold on – and buyers will be more sensitive to price than Europeans. As Simon Zhou of Ruby Red Fine Wines in Shanghai said, ’speculators will be the biggest buyers of 09 Bordeaux. Wine drinkers … will not buy as enthusiastically as most overseas trade and media seem to think.‘ Continue reading „Chinese speculators not drinkers will buy Bordeaux 09: survey“

That was the backdrop against which India’s first National Wine Conference was held in New Delhi last week and, if anything, the meet underlined fears that the country’s wine sector is in a ‘make or break’ situation.
