Wine Industry Journal May/June issue out now

The May/June issue of the Wine Industry Journal's Varietal Report, introduced by the Hunter Valley’s Jim Chatto, focuses on Australian 2005 vintage Shiraz and puts a small selection of wines to the test with the tasting held at the NSW TAFE’s Kurri Kurri campus. Some of Australia’s best Shiraz winemakers share their stories from the 2005 vintage including how they view the quality of the resultant wine.

The Hunter Valley focus continues with Tony Keys report from his week-long tour of the region in April this year. Tony embarked on his journey with an aim to discover how the Hunter Valley’s producers and leaders are working towards the same goal of promoting the region as one of Australia’s best in terms of quality.

Richard Smart gives a unique perspective on viticulture’s role in producing the wine characters that consumers seek. Jonathan Scott analyses the market opportunities for Australian wine in the Republic of Korea (colloquially known as South Korea) and says the country’s rising wine imports and developing wine culture, coupled with a long tradition of alcohol production and consumption makes it a viable market for Australian wine.

Bowen Estate in South Australia’s Coonawarra region has seen some difficult times along with its neighbouring properties due to frost and drought over the past year; however, the Bowen family has reason to celebrate this year with the creation of the 30th vintage of its renowned Cabernet Sauvignon.

Other features of this issue include our close look at the Directions to 2025 industry strategy launched nationally in May this year; and the introduction of a new friend, PP Bradshaw, who picks up where an old friend of many Journal readers, Rimmington, left off.
