When a new winemaker steps onto the world stage, they have some very big boots to fill. They can’t immediately start producing tons and tons of high-quality grape, and some of them often resort to purchasing small amounts of grape from already established producers. Because of how much catching up they often have to do, their strategy tends to revolve around producing a smaller amount of really stellar wine. Quality over quantity brought close to the logical extreme. A low-yield approach is already widely considered as the most reliable way to produce high-quality fine wines, so their dedication to viticultural excellence typically proves healthy for their harvests and the structural and aromatic complexity of their blends.
However, the limited production results in a less accessible wine than usual. While some would see that as a tragedy, enthusiastic “wine hunters” see it as a thrilling challenge, an obstacle to overcome as they try to assemble the greatest collection possible. Sampling one of these bottles is an insight into the future, as the talent and potential of an aspiring winemaker are laid out in front of you, eager to prove their worth in a swirling tide of gorgeous flavor. If you like to network with other wine aficionados, you can use these samplings to discern how the wine market will shape up over the coming years, and plan for really good strategic investments.
