Austrian red wines | Pinot Post | Scoop.it
For a while I will be writing my Monday articles in English, at the non-restrictive suggestion of Hervé Lalau whose eagle eye has spotted a sudden surge in our readership figures from English-speaking countries. You may call this cynical marketing opportunism if you wish. I call it good intelligence. We shall see how it goes…

Italy's top Pinot Noirs

Italy's top Pinot Noirs | Pinot Post | Scoop.it
Italy’s top Pinot Noirs ‘My wish has always been to make a La Tâche 1953: elegance combined with power, and varietally pure.’ I am with Franz Haas, veteran wine producer in alpine South Tyrol, who has just poured me a glass of Pònkler, his beautiful single-vineyard Pinot Noir planted at an incredible density of 10,000 vines per hectare at 750m, high up in the Alps. When I protest, saying it doesn’t make sense to pursue this in a radically different terroir, he corrects me: ‘Of course my guiding light is Burgundy. I need that guiding light to find out what I can achieve in South Tyrol.’ But rather than Burgundy, cool climate seems to be the key principle that lies behind Pònkler. Walter Speller is an Italian wine specialist. 10 great Italian Pinot Noirs

30 great New World buys under £30

30 great New World buys under £30 | Pinot Post | Scoop.it

What defines ‘New World’? And what do we as wine lovers want and expect of it? These two questions merit pondering because the answers aren’t obvious and they challenge a fair few preconceptions. Of course, on one level, the New World is all those territories outside Europe. But what about China, home to some of the most ancient civilisations on earth? The Middle East would seem to be in some sort of limbo territory. Parts of South America have been making wine since the mid-16th century, many years longer than the grand châteaux of the Médoc. And then there are areas within the Old World that seem decidedly new wave… In the end, I decided to keep things simple. I compiled a shortlist (in reality not far off 200 wines) culled from well over 1,000 potential options tasted recently, and then whittled them down – agonisingly – to end up with this list of delectables. The focus was dry whites and reds under £30 (but the odd fizz and sweet has inevitably crept in) and I’ve tried to cover a range of price points, retailers, geographies and vintages.

Oregon Pushes the Quality Needle for Pinot BY JOSH RAYNOLDS | JANUARY 18, 2018 Recent vintages have mostly been an embarrassment of riches for Oregon’s winegrowers—in quantity as well as quality. One could also add that “richness” applies to the style of wines made in 2015, 2014 and 2012 as well.
