Wine Industry Journal November/December issue out now

The November/December 2007 issue of the Wine Industry Journal features a healthy dose of new ideas and the results of innovative research to keep Australian and New Zealand wine businesses at the forefront of industry leadership.

The second part of our new column investigating new and exciting grape varieties to be introduced to Australian and New Zealand vineyards looks at the Italian white grape variety, Fiano. Dr Peter Dry of the University of Adelaide and Winetitles journalist Sonya Logan talk to those working with Fiano in Australia to understand its potential for wider industry acceptance.

Yeast and fermentation decisions are critical to wine flavour and style and this issue’s AWRI Report highlights the importance of nitrogen management throughout the winemaking process to ensure a quality wine.

Casella Wines chief winemaker Alan Kennett installed 10 enormous 1.1ML fermentation tanks at the Riverina-based facility for this year’s vintage. In his report, Alan shares his tips and tricks for managing larger ferments.

The Wine Industry Journal’s business commentator Jonathan Scott has re-visited his investigation of the trends in Australia’s bulk wine market from 12 months ago, and has discovered changes in demand patterns caused by alterations in consumer demands with particular concern to wines’ environmental impact.

We are pleased to bring our readers the latest in business and marketing analysis from Australia’s leading research institutions and we again have the opportunity to publish the results of the work carried out by Dr Steve Goodman, Professor Larry Lockshin and Dr Eli Cohen. Retail marketing results from USA, New Zealand, Brazil, Austria, Italy and France are highlighted in this issue’s instalment in the ongoing series of papers.

The Wine Industry Journal continued its ‘roadshow’ of Varietal Report tastings for this issue, travelling to La Trobe University in Melbourne to showcase a line-up of Grenache wines. The panel included writer for The Age, Jeni Port, and local winemakers and students.

One of the many other highlights in this issue is Valmai Hankel’s look at the history of the Barons of Barossa wine fraternity. This year, Valmai was inducted as a Companion of the Barons of Barossa, which the Wine Industry Journal congratulates her on.
