Domäne Wachau – 2010 – klein aber fein

Tag: Weingütersigi.hiss @ 11:16

Schwieriger und nervenaufreibender als heuer war wohl selten ein Weinjahr in der Wachau – doch hat sich am letzten Drücker vieles zum Guten gewendet.

Sorglos konnte man der Veltlinerlese entgegenblicken. Säure und Zucker pendelten sich  in einträchtiger Harmonie ein, die Frucht ist präzis und die Weine sind, von der Steinfeder bis zum Smaragd Repräsentanten ihrer Herkunft und Intention. Continue reading „Domäne Wachau – 2010 – klein aber fein“

NEW ZEALAND – Delegat’s Wine Estate to swallow Oyster Bay Marlborough Vineyards

Tag: Weingütersigi.hiss @ 09:23

By: just-drinks.com editorial team – Delegat’s Wine Estate has begun the final stages of swallowing Oyster Bay Marlborough Vineyards, in order to protect its grape supply for the Oyster Bay wine brand.

Delegat’s announced yesterday (10 January) that it will begin acquiring all remaining shares in Oyster Bay Marlborough Vineyards (OBMV). Delegat’s said that the move is compulsory, because it acquired „90% or more“ of the grape supplier’s voting rights in December.

The move is intended to help Delegat’s secure supplies for its Oyster Bay wine brand. OBMV plunged into the red after a collapse in grape prices for its fiscal year to the end of June, raising concerns about the firm’s ability to weather the oversupply problems enveloping New Zealand’s wine industry.

Delegat’s said that remaining OBMV shareholders can either sell up for NZD2.08 (US$1.6) per share or transfer their existing shares to Delegat’s shares. Delegat’s began efforts to acquire the remainder of OBMV in October last year. It already owned 54.9% of the business. The group said at the time that full OBMV ownership would turn it into a „vertically-integrated, diversified wine company“.

NEW ZEALAND: Wine oversupply to last two years – Delegat’s

Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 09:21

By: just-drinks.com editorial team – The producer of the Oyster Bay wine brand, Delegat’s, has predicted that New Zealand’s wine surplus will continue to cause the industry headaches for the next two years.

Vineyards will lose their value and grape prices are unlikely to rise in the near-future, Delegat’s MD, Jim Delegat, said at the company’s annual general meeting last month. Delegat’s has this week begun the final stages in its acquisition of Oyster Bay Marlborough Vineyards in order to protect grape supplies for its Oyster Bay brand.

Oversupply has threatened to damage the value of New Zealand wines in key export markets since the industry reported a bumper harvest in 2008. Grape prices have subsequently slumped and, with them, profits.

Trade body New Zealand Winegrowers has said it is increasingly optimistic about the sector’s prospects following successful efforts to rein in the country’s grape harvest in 2010. But, Delegat said that recovery remains some way off. Continue reading „NEW ZEALAND: Wine oversupply to last two years – Delegat’s“
