The Rising Stars
Posted 23 June 2003 - 06:50 PM
I am very much looking forward to your discussion of all the topics so far presented and those yet to be posted. I am wondering what wines, winemakers and regions are those whom you see to be the future stars and most importantly, why?
It seems that over the last twenty years or so, big, bold wines have ascended in popularity. Do you see that trend continuing? Is it possible for terroir to be truly identifiable in a powerhouse blockbuster?
Thanks for visitng us and pleae keep on writing and filming!

I dearly hope that the wines of the future will continue to express their origins more and more clearly. That is wine's great USP after all.
I'm sure there is still lots to discover in both Spain and Portugal, and in Croatia, cooler regions of Australia which may not even have been planted yet, ditto South Africa. And I'm currently writing an FT article about Thapsus 2002, a particularly interesting Carignan made in Tunisia by a woman from McLaren Vale. I've been impressed by a couple of wines made in India. Yesterday I was emailed by someone claiming to be (S) Korea's only serious wine producer. These surprises are popping up all over the place.
