Chile is often seen in the pages of Quench. Most recently, W. Blake Gray shared the epic tale of País - a story that includes religious conquest, heroic resistance and a long downtrodden period simmering in crushing poverty.
There's a lot going in that South American country with a long, dynamic wine history. Chilean winemakers have embraced organic winemaking like no other; their Sauvignon Blanc overshadows New Zealand's signature wine; back in 2014, they introduced new DOs (Donominacion de Origen); and in 2013, Chile proved they were the "Great Imitators". All in all, we think you would agree that Chile is still winning at wine.
Chile is writing a new chapter for this historic grape.
After exploring the wine regions of Serbia, one of the most exciting takeaways was the personal discovery of the indigenous red grape Prokupac, which is pronounced Pro-ku-patz with the “r” lightly rolled.
Grüner Veltliner is the most important autochthonous grape variety in Austria. Today, the variety is widely planted especially in Niederösterreich and northern Burgenland. Producing an origin-typical DAC wine, this variety holds special rank in several winegrowing regions. While its cultivation decreased between 1999 and 2009, it still maintains the dominant position in Austria's total vineyard surface area. The firm, robust Grüner Veltliner is clearly the most universal food companion. With its full, balanced body and its power and finesse, Grüner Veltliner is the ideal companion for an array of Asian dishes prepared in a variety of ways. Whether fish or meat, fish appetizers or even classic Dim Sum and Spring Rolls – there is perfect harmony. This wine stands up so well to sharp flavours and, with its well-integrated acidity, is incredibly refreshing on the palate. And in its full-bodied form, Grüner Veltliner with balance, mature acidity – and no oaky flavour, of course – is incomparably sublime when paired with umami-rich foods.
