Australian Wine Success Demonstrates The Range Of Wine Countries-diqua

Food-and-Drink The number of countries that make wine surprises most people. Go into a decently large wine shop and you’ll probably see sections devoted to more than 10 countries, with another section for the remaining dozen or so others. Of course, many of wine’s most popular grapes originated in Europe. France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, and the area of Austria, Hungary, and Greece still maintain a firm hold at the top of the wine industry. But the United States is a significant wine producer and some of its wines .pete on the international stage, and other "new world" countries have emerged as well in recent years. Australian wine, for example, has be.e very popular among several different types of wine drinkers in the United States, and its quality is often the absolute best, clearly good enough to use as wine for charity events. With the emergence of these upstart .petitors, it can be useful to think about the differences that some of the major wine producers offer in their bottles. The old country wine makers clearly have a few advantages. They have centuries of experience, with some families having worked with the same wine, maybe even the same plant, for generations. This kind of intimacy and familiarity with a grape cannot be reproduced or denied. It gives these vintners a unique level of understanding. They grow their grapes in the perfect conditions, pick them at the perfect time for the perfect bottle, and ferment them as they have done for decades or centuries. But this tradition and experience also blinds them to new possibilities, especially in terms of specific strains being able to produce high-quality wines when grown in other climates. That’s a lot of what new wine countries have to offer. On top of their enthusiasm, ability to apply new technology more affordably, and desire to prove themselves, they have less-explored growing climates. The benefits of this can be seen in Chile, Argentina, and Australia. In Chile, the nature of the soil and timing of the rain meant that for many years growers who borrowed picking strategies from experts who had sold them vines ended up leaving their grapes on the vine too long. Then they aged the wines too long, misjudging the sugar content. Now that they understand things better, many Chilean wines are ready to drink immediately, where the same variety grown in Europe needs time to mature. Australian wines demonstrate this kind of benefit even more strongly. Australia is huge, and is home to a number of different climates, regions, and terrior-types, giving it the resources to grow world class grapes for a number of different popular wines. Australia’s main grapes are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. Between having actually been growing wine for more than a century, enjoying the skill of growers and vintners trained by experts of traditional techniques in France, and a local .munity that has provided healthy support for the industry, Australia has catapulted itself to the international stage with a number of incredibly wines. As a wine drinker, the emergence of more wine growing countries across the globe, many of them figuring out how to produce superior wines, can only be thought of as a good thing. The strength of Australian wines has, for example, made delicious, high-quality bottles much more affordable and increased the variety of options for most. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
