The Vincast Live 5/12/2017 – “What are the ‘right’ grape varieties for Australian wine?”

I was thrilled to host the first ever edition of The Vincast Live in conjunction with the Ear Buds Podcast Network. Joining me as co-host was wine enthusiast, activist and fellow podcaster (Quickie) Nevena Spirovska (who is also the person that invited to me to be a member of the network).

For the first edition of this new and exciting concept, we discussed the topic – “What are the ‘right’ grape varieties for Australian wine?”  Not only is the Australian wine industry rapidly evolving with new grape varieties and alternative techniques, but so are the tastes of Australian wine consumers. With so many different options for planting in a multitude of different regions, what are the right choices to keep up with developments and trends when it comes to vitis vinifera?

Joining us were winemakers and former guests of The Vincast; Dan Buckle from Chandon Australia and Circe Wines and guest on Episode 67 (and Episode 117) of The Vincast; and Ben Ranken from Galli Estate and Wilimee Wines, guest on this week’s episode of the podcast. There were wines for tasting relevant to the topic to fuel further discussion. I’m thrilled that we held this event at Noisy Ritual in Brunswick East, owned and operated by another former guest – Alex Byrne from Episode 80 – where I also made my first Vino Intrepido wine.

Let’s Taste – Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz 2004

I’ve been sitting on this second bottle for a few years now, and thought it was about time to open it. The Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz has one of the best modern pedigrees for shiraz in Australia, and it is richly deserved, as it is one of the most consistent and age-able. Former guest of the podcast Dan Buckle was the winemaker when this 2004 vintage was made, and I was excited to see how it was travelling. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

The Vincast Episode 067 – Dan Buckle from Chandon Australia & Circe Wines

Dan Buckle is no slouch when it comes to winemaking, gaining experience at some of the most awarded wineries in Victoria. Having worked for Yering Station & Mount Langi Ghiran he joined Domaine Chandon Australia as the Chief Winemaker several years ago, breathing new life into their sparkling and still wines. Honouring his original entry into wine as a teenager, he also produces some of his own wines from the Mornington Peninsula under the Circe brand. He joins me on this episode of the podcast to chat about his journey.
