Rosemount crowned Bushing King
Rosemount Estate winemaker Matt Koch was named Bushing King for
the second year in a row at the 2013 AMCOR McLaren Vale Wine Show
Luncheon, held at Penny's Hill Winery on November 1. The highly coveted
prize is bestowed on the winemaker who produces the 'Wine of Show'
at the annual show. Matt, Chief Winemaker at Rosemount, accepted the
'royal title' after picking up a staggering nine trophies from a possible
26, with the 2012 Rosemount District Cabernet Sauvignon winning the
Bushing Trophy for the overall wine of show. "The result again recognises
Rosemount Estate's great wines and highlights the McLaren Vale region as
an appellation of high quality and consistency, particularly reflective of the
amazing 2012 vintage," Matt said. Rosemount Estate managing director
Angus McPherson said the brand's unrivalled performance at the show
held significant importance.
TIA wins top viticulture paper
Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture researchers Ms Katie Dunne, Dr Kathy
Evans and Dr Karen Barry, along with their American colleagues, have
been awarded Australia's top viticultural research award. The team won
the Best Viticulture Paper category at the 2013 Awards for Excellence
held by the Australian Society for Viticulture and Oenology in Adelaide in
October. The paper, titled 'Optimisation of techniques for quantification
of Botrytis cinerea in grape berries and receptacles by quantitative
polymerase chain reaction', was published in the Australian Journal of
Grape and Wine Research, the scientific journal overseen by the ASVO, the
peak professional body for Australian grape-growers and winemakers.
Rabobank reports on Argentina
The Argentine wine boom has been an impressive story. A growing
demand for wines at higher price points saw Argentine exports take
off from the early 2000s. But in 2012, export volumes of Argentine
still-bottled wine began to contract, unveiling the challenges the sector
is currently facing. According to Rabobank's Wine Quarterly Q3 report,
Argentina must find ways to regain competitiveness, while maintaining
the country's brand image through market diversification and innovation
to drive growth in the domestic market. Rabobank analyst Valeria Mutis
said wine production costs have increased as much as 100 per cent over
the last four years. While the industry has little or no capacity to alter the
current economic context, there are a number of strategic steps that it can
undergo to improve its competitive position.
